Program Description:Home Health agencies have a duty of care for the patients/clients they serve. A duty of care refers to the obligation to take responsible care to avoid injury to a person whom, it can be reasonably foreseen, might be injured by an act or omission. Omission is often the area that puts agencies at greatest risk. A clinician didn’t know how to meet a need, therefore, they overlook that it exist. In home health, the care you provide must be looked at through a multidisciplinary lens where multiple complex issues will arise. As an Administrator, there will be times you are dependent on outside resources, and community partners, to solve a need. It is also important to understand ethical issues associated with using outside resources, including ensuring that there are no “kickbacks” associated with using other community partners.

This presentation teaches Administrators how, and where, to locate community resources for their patients/clients, how to utilize community resources in an ethical way, as well as how to train field staff, to recognize issues in the home care setting that might warrant the use of community resources.

Program Learning Outcome: Participants will actively engage in the learning activity and identify ethical issues associated with using community resources and ways to recognize issues in the home care setting that might warrant the use of community resources.
