Violence in Home Health Care: Protecting Your Workforce

Webinar Recording Available

Program Summary      

Workplace violence is a growing concern for the home health care industry and its workers. Although precise rates of violent events specific to the home health care industry are unavailable, it has been well established that health care workers in general, and specifically those in the nursing profession, experience high rates of violence compared to most other industries.

Home healthcare workers often face an unsafe and unpredictable environment as they visit a client’s neighborhood and home.  Since more violent incidents occur in health care settings than any other profession, your administrative staff are also vulnerable.

At the conclusion of this webinar the learners will have knowledge of the extent of the problem and what measures the home health agency or hospice can take to help protect their workforce from violence.

Who should attend? Those providing health care in the home including nurses, aides, therapists, social workers, and administrators.

Presenter:  Liles Parker, PLLC whose practice is focused on compliance and regulatory matters. The firm handles Medicare overpayment cases of all types (most of which involve extrapolated damages), internal audits/investigations, and other health law projects. Since entering private practice, Robert has continued to build on his knowledge and experience in regulatory matters.
