Because your healthcare practice is also a business, there are business obligations that must be adhered to, including being prepared in the case of an emergency or disaster. These can come in many forms, most of which we’d never think about on a day-to-day basis. Things like tornadoes, wild-fires, a car crashing through your front window, a robbery down the sidewalk from your clinic, or even an “active shooter” in the area causing a lockdown. These can and have happened to healthcare providers. Not only are these things important to be prepared for, but in healthcare, it’s the law. In this important session, compliance expert, Dr. Fran, will cover these very important considerations every healthcare office must be concerned about:

  • Be exposed to the 4 “core elements” of an emergency preparedness program
  • Understand why certain components are mandatory for healthcare providers
  • Find out how elements of OSHA compliance are required in your office, including things as simple as an evacuation plan
  • Learn what “free” information is available for you to bring your practice into compliance
  • Prepare your office for required training
  • Be able to plan and implement a drill to make sure your team is ready to go
