Health care organizations face unique personnel issues and challenges. Increasingly, human resources professionals and others in health care leadership find themselves navigating the complex overlap between employment laws and regulatory compliance. One such area is managing provider conduct and performance. For example, employment law and regulatory obligations often collide when organizations discipline and terminate physicians and other licensed clinical providers. Inadvertent missteps in these complex processes can result in serious consequences to an organization, such as loss of funding, repayment or recoupment obligations and criminal and other penalties against individuals, including an organization's executives. This seminar offers a set of practical, checklist style approaches to minimizing legal risk when addressing provider conduct and performance issues in the health care workplace. Topics covered will include:

Resident Rights vs. Regulatory Issues: Managing Health Care Decision Making and Personal Preferences in Nursing Facilities - Who Decides?
Facilities want to ensure regulatory compliance. Residents want the right to make personal choices. Program focuses on the decision-making process for health care and personal decisions. The obligation to protect and enrich resident care, health, and safety often conflict with resident rights, a resident's right to refuse treatment and a resident's personal preferences. Regulations, CMS guidance, ALJ decisions, DAB decisions and case law address resident rights, resident preferences and resident health and safety issues presented by resident choices. Also impacting these situations are resident capacity and consent issues as they relate to health care and personal decisions. Facilities need to balance competing concerns when a resident's right to reject treatment leads to injuries. Program will review the important components in treatment situations and agreements to lower the risk of survey tags and litigation issues that occur when resident treatment decisions result in adverse outcomes. Using real life examples from court cases, CMS decisions and speakers experience during lecture will support participants learning the laws, rules, procedures and recommended steps. Presentation slides with the steps and tips will serve as an excellent resource for participants.
