Kimberly’s representative employment law experience includes successfully defending employers in FLSA wage actions and Title VII litigation. An important part of Kimberly’s practice is helping her clients avoid litigation altogether through reviewing contracts, conducting self-audits to ensure regulatory compliance, and assisting clients with best practices training and compliance.

HCSSA Topic(s) Addressed: §558.259[d][4]agency responsibilities §558.260[a][8]skills for working with clients, families, and other professional service providers Program Description: Transitions in care would seem on the surface to be a "non-issue" in hospice medicine, but with increasing complexity and segmentation of care for the seriously ill, patients often enter hospice from the acute care system with unrealistic expectations of what is needed and what will be provided. Often unnecessary emergency department visits and hospitalizations result, as well as demands for services not part of the standard hospice plan of care. This program explores not only addressing the expectations of patients and their families, but also addressing the increasing expectations of payers. A vision for the future of optimal care of the seriously ill is presented, acknowledging the daunting steps needed for the evolution of a hospice organization towards a "full service" model, as our organizations enter into a time of increased demand, regulatory uncertainty, quality-based scrutiny, and fiscal constraint. Program Learning Outcome: Participants will actively engage in the learning activity and indicate an intent to change their practice by incorporating effective communication strategies and comprehensive care plans to avoid unnecessary transitions of care.

Outsourcing Human Resources allows home care agencies to grow much faster and more efficiently. Any employer that can focus on their core competencies will be more profitable than one that has to hire and manage a larger staff that does not make the company money or keeps the company accredited. This program addresses issues facing any employer in today’s business environment, such as governmental compliance, payroll, employee management software, insurance procurement, Workers Compensation insurance, and safety. Program Learning Outcome: Participants will actively engage in the learning activity and indicate an intent to change their practice by implementing best practices to remain in compliance with state and federal employment requirements.
