Testimonials

"EPIX is so much more than an insurance company with whom we trade money for a certificate of insurance. We truly feel we have a partner. From quality CME (which my docs actually enjoy), to first-class administrative staff, to comprehensive assistance when we have an issue, to the transparent way they run the business, EPIX has exceeded our expectations. I wish I had this level of trust with all of our vendors."
Mickey Buckmaster, CPA
Practice Administrator for Green Country Emergency Physicians Group of Tulsa

"EPIX came onsite to help us with our throughput. In addition to their expert consultation, they offered us a day-long CME course on using lean principles to improve ED operations. We had ED physicians, nurses and hospital leaders attend the course. Since the training we are using new terminology (i.e.: value streams, etc.) in meetings and have found that it turns heads and people listen a little closer. Once again EPIX showed us that they are more than an insurance company, they are a valued business partner."

"Since becoming insured with EPIX in 2008 our group has benefited from a partnership that provides us with much more than malpractice insurance. As emergency physicians with a primary focus on patient safety our group appreciates the value of EPIX's risk management program on a daily basis. EPIX's top notch email alerts keep us up to date on topics specific to our practice in emergency medicine. And rather than being required to complete generic courses on risk management in return for premium discounts, EPIX CME courses are relevant to our practice and offer practical tips and advice we can use in our next shift in the ED. EPIX understands emergency physicians because the company is governed by emergency physicians. I cannot think of a better model for malpractice insurance."

EPIX EMAIL ALERT

"Can't Miss" Seizure Presentations, Part 2

 

By Dr. Stephen Colucciello

 

The Wild Man

 

A 40-year-old plaintiff’s attorney from the firm of Shady and Leach presents with a first time seizure.

 

Medics gave him several rounds of midazolam for agitation during transport and the patient arrives with the following vital signs: BP 185/110, P 135, T 101, R 25, PO 98% and blood glucose 145.

 

The patient is tremulous and will not follow commands. He is drenched in sweat, intermittently retches and scratches frantically.

 

Although there are no focal neuro deficits, the patient is hyper-reflexic and looks wildly around the room during the exam. During the physical, he tries to eat your reflex hammer.
