Course Description:

If you provide services to geriatric populations, your organization faces a legal and regulatory maze. In order to understand the needs and concerns of patients and their families, and to provide appropriate services and referrals, you are expected to have a thorough understanding of common and complex issues related to paying for medical expenses and long-term care, nursing home residents’ rights, MOLST, advance directives, guardianship, abuse and exploitation, Medicaid eligibility – and more.

Mr. Bress, Mr. Cathell and Mr. Lippe will provide current information that is crucial to understanding the legal and financial issues which impact the everyday aspects of providing health care services. You will leave this seminar with more confidence in care planning and case management of your geriatric patients.
Objectives:
  1. Identify the various methods of LTC funding.
  2. Describe best practices to avoid being sued.
  3. Compare the benefits of Advance Directive vs. Living Will.
  4. Discuss how to manage MOLST forms.
  5. Identify the latest Maryland laws implemented to prevent abuse.
  6. Describe Medicaid eligibility for married and single applicants.
