The price long-term care organizations pay for noncompliance with Federal and State regulations goes beyond fines and penalties.
While compliance has its own costs, noncompliance is a losing game-plan for long-term care organizations. Organizations that place a high value on quality of care, improving performance and staying compliant demonstrate their commitment to ethical conduct to regulators, potential patients (and their families) and the general community. On the other hand, noncompliance can lead to a bad reputation and lost business.
The Long Term Care Institute (LTCI) has years of experience working in and with long-term care organizations of all kinds to help to improve their businesses through compliance program development, quality assurance and performance improvement and external monitoring.
Our systems approach to compliance gets at the underlying issues that lead to noncompliance and inefficiencies in operations.
