A home health agency depends on its entire care team—aides, nurses, therapists, and social workers—to ensure proper care and documentation. If the team doesn’t understand ethics and liability, the agency is in danger of fraud, abuse, Medicare reimbursement denials, and legal issues. HCPro’s new Ethics and Liability for the Home Health Team video provides agencies with standardized staff training that can be used to train an entire staff at once or individual staff members at the point of hire. The video addresses all members of the care team, providing common and challenging scenarios often faced by home health staff. In order to confirm the training’s effectiveness, this video includes a downloadable quiz that your agency can keep on file. Including Ethics and Liability for the Home Health Team in your training program will give your staff consistent, effective training and help your agency avoid falling victim to negative consequences.

The entire care team will benefit from this video, which provides:

  • Lifelike, common home health–specific scenarios reviewed by a legal expert in home health
  • Coverage of Medicare regulation issues, such as homebound status and skilled nursing requirements, to further educate staff
  • A quiz to test learning comprehension
  • Easy and quick training for new staff or for annual orientations
