Do We Have to Let the Government In?
December 4, 2018 - 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm (ET)
An OIG agent pays a call on the Compliance Officer. The agent hands her papers with the words “Civil Investigative Demand” on the front page. The CID asks for documents dealing with 55 separate topics, including all e-mails and text messages relating to the busiest orthopedic surgeon on the medical staff, who also happens to be an employee and a regular golf buddy of the CEO and Board Chair. It’s days like this when you are glad you have your lawyers on speed dial. Now what?

Designed to be informative for any medical staff member, Grand Rounds 2018 should be particularly helpful for medical staff leadership: Medical Staff Officers, members of the Medical Executive Committee, Department Chairs, Chairs of the Credentials and Peer Review Committees, and the Chairs of other key medical staff committees.
If you have new members in any of these important positions, this is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for direct education that we guarantee will be helpful to them in their new roles.
Upon completion of this audio conference, participants should be able to:
- Recognize that a crisis involves both a “legal” and a public relations side;
- Develop a plan to deal with both sides of the crisis — who to call, when and why; and
- Identify when the legal and public relations aspects of a crisis overlap, and how to deal with it.
Instructions on how to obtain your Continuing Education certificate for audio conferences will be e-mailed to the contact person for your organization at the conclusion of each audio conference.
