Psychiatric and also mentally disabled people used to be dumped into an institutional setting where their needs and rights were virtually ignored. Today, group homes funded by Medicaid and Medicare, with government oversight, respect residents’ rights and take on the often-challenging work of keeping everyone safe in a group home.
Laurie Morgan, the CEO of Law Nursing Consulting, has extensive experience working with these care facilities. She shares insights about common liability issues faced, including residents leaving the group home unattended, and also the creative ways in which these issues are addressed. Plus, we’ll touch on the roles of the diverse nursing responsibilities in coordinating care, implementing individual behavioral health plans, and making critical decisions regarding levels of care.
Conflict, often physical, does develop, as do issues where malpractice may be present. Laurie describes the resources available to the LNC involved in a group home case.
If you’ve wondered how the journey from psychiatric facilities of the past to today’s group homes has progressed, this episode is a must-listen. Stay tuned as we unravel these topics and much more on the Legal Nurse Podcast.
