Audio-Conference Description
Violence against providers of services in patients’ homes seems to be increasing.  Several staff members have recently lost their lives while visiting patients.  Home health agencies, hospices, private duty agencies, and HME companies have a duty to protect their staff members.  When providers fail to protect workers, they may violate OSHA requirements and may be liable for negligence.  What do current OSHA requirements say?  What do workers have to prove in order to hold providers liable for negligence?  How can providers avoid injuries to staff members, non-compliance with OSHA requirements, and liability for negligence?  What concrete steps should providers take now to manage their risks?  Learn what to do in light of a worsening problem for homecare providers of all types.  There will be plenty of time for questions during the teleconference and extensive handouts will be provided.
