Am I a mandatory reporter? When do I report? To whom do I report? Will I be violating HIPPA if I report this?
When we suspect a resident is being abused or exploited, or a resident is a danger to themselves, many questions can arise alongside our concerns for the resident's safety. This webinar will discuss the newest legislation and best practices for you to follow as a mandated reporter.
- learn about the legal obligation to report resident issues, including recent elder abuse prevention law and the newest revision in the Duty to Warn statute;
- review the definitions related to child abuse and neglect, and abuse, neglect and exploitation of elders and at-risk adults;
- use case studies to discuss the critical boundaries between confidentiality, customer rights, and reporting requirements;
- review the components of necessary documentation. You will come away with three sample formats for case documentation, and tips to write more efficiently and with a higher level of professionalism.
