The Human Resources (HR) process often rates lower in the scheme of importance within home health agencies than most other activities. It is often treated as an afterthought and assigned to a clerical person who is already overworked with tasks that are considered more important, especially in free-‐standing home care entities. Hospital based agencies may be connected to the hospital HR departments and regard HR responsibilities with a little more importance, however the requirements for home health agencies compared to other health care entities are far different. Some important compliance elements can easily be lost in the shuffle.
For example, the specific home care requirements for tediously tracking the education/training activities within defined timelines of staff can be very wearisome in order to maintain compliance. Take, for instance, the 12 hours required for home health aides.
In this webinar, we will identify mandatory HR requirements and debunk some of the myths that are falsely thought to be mandatory. We will demonstrate methods of organizing your HR activities to minimize identification of deficit practices in the survey process and maximize the HR staff’s time and effort. Examples of critical HR policies will be presented with concepts for development and implementation specific to your agency.
