Some of our favorite tips come from people who have spoken at TBSE. That’s why once each month we have been bringing you “TBSE Tips!” The third in this series comes from Laney Kay. Laney is absolutely the best educator we have ever met in the field of OSHA, HIPAA, and all of those other annoying acronyms. She is also incredibly hilarious.
1. When it comes to regulatory compliance, documentation will save your butt. Whenever you train your team, whenever you change the way you do things, whenever you encounter a problem, write it in your notebook. Documentation proves that you are taking regular, positive steps to stay in compliance and maintain your programs.2. Don’t let regulations drive you crazy. Establish a program, set up a schedule to maintain it regularly and then stop worrying about it. The best way to avoid problems is always to treat your patients well and do your best work.
3. Neither OSHA nor HIPAA requires you to use a certain product or endorses any specific program. If anyone tells you that, they’re trying to sell you something!
4. Always wear underwear with a skirt. (That’s just good advice in life.)
Thanks so much Laney! We know thousands of people just did a skirt check.
