Sometimes we need a wakeup call with regards to healthcare compliance. Remember we can choose to comply because we understand that it benefits us and others, or we can choose not to comply and reap the consequences. No one likes a lot of rules, but the rules have been established to protect us all. On some occasions, individuals may unintentionally fail to comply. Sometimes that happens because of poor communications regarding written standards, inaccessible written standards, or other failures regarding review practices. People do make mistakes, but the goal is to limit the number of mistakes through good communication and good documentation of processes.
Is your physician practice or healthcare entity in full compliance??
