To prevent lawsuits, long-term care leaders need to routinely communicate with difficult family members, a defense attorney told a McKnight's Fall Online Expo webcast audience last month.
If I have a favorite quote from this year's LeadingAge Illinois conference, it's from Matthew Murer, an attorney at Polsinelli, who said it's OK for long-term care providers to turn away prospective residents who seem like a bad fit.
Allow me to share a little long-term care humor to brighten your day. Did you hear the one about the long-term care resident who kept unplugging her roommate's ventilator?
McKnight's first Fall Online Expo will feature three separate webcasts, starting at 10:30 a.m. EDT on Tuesday (Sept. 10). A panel of experts will discuss essential long-term care issues, such as Minimum Data Set changes and hospital partnerships. Attendees will be eligible for no-cost continuing education credits.
