Governance: Legal Problems Your Board Can Avoid

Recorded Thursday, November 8, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. (Eastern)

Is your board good, or is it lucky? Increased litigation against senior living providers and senior care facilities poses a financial risk to those organizations and in certain cases, exposes board members to claims of personal liability. What conduct/actions/decisions are appropriate for board members and what might make them — and the organization — vulnerable? How do you protect the organization’s assets? Against what four types of risk must the board — and top management — protect the organization? How do you avoid being sued? How can a gap analysis help? Our panel of experts will shed light on these issues and explain how your board — and your organization — can set policies that effectively mitigate risk.

This educational offering has been approved for 1.50 clock hours by the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB).
