For our newest 3 Questions With… Eloquest Healthcare is proud to feature Russell Nassof, JD. Mr. Nassof discusses what inspires him most in his role as an Association for Vascular Access (AVA) Board Member, as well as important issues that are currently underappreciated. He also discusses the legal implications of vascular access associated blood stream infections.
Mr. Nassof is an attorney who has been involved in the fields of health risk consulting and clinician education for over ten years concentrating his work in the areas of infection prevention, and risk/liability minimization for vascular access issues. He has presented hundreds of seminars and webinars to legal, insurance, loss control, healthcare, and risk management groups throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia.
While Mr. Nassof has been involved as a consulting/testifying expert on such diverse events as recent outbreaks of Legionnaires’ Disease, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), and Ebola, his passion is focused on managing risk and liability for vascular catheter-associated risk and was the first non-clinician elected to the Association for Vascular Access (AVA) Board of Directors. He also served as a reviewer on the 2016 Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice. He has coauthored books on environmental/healthcare issues. He recently developed a peripheral catheter matrix addressing clinician best practice issues and liability minimization.
