9:15am          Crisis Management – John Hessburg, Kitch, and Richard Todd and Sonya Conner, McGriff Insurance Services

Workplace Violence, Resident Abuse, Breakdown in the Provision of Care, Privacy Breaches, Natural Disasters – these events have a few elements in common. Our brand is at stake.  We have made sincere commitments to our residents and their families, commitments that we intend to keep, commitments that are in keeping with our mission, commitments that we planned for and trained on – and then protocol is not followed, security is breached, response systems are overwhelmed. Whatever the scenario, we find ourselves working in “Reaction Mode.” When these events occur, care can be compromised; and then the media walks in. How we respond can impact resident outcomes, regulatory outcomes, and civil and criminal exposure.

Feel energized about participating on this exciting content?!  Join us for a session on how to manage elements of a crisis including media response.  Emphasis will be placed on Workplace Violence examples, but content will be applicable to many different scenarios.

12:45pm        Risk Assessment and Best Practices for Violence Prevention and Response - Rick Christ, Crisis Prevention & Response, Inc. (CPR, Inc.)
                     Starting with a frank assessment of violence as it relates to your workplace, we will discuss the process of analyzing your own facility’s risk of violence. We will present current statistic
                      for Virginia and the nation and build a matrix for understanding the risks of various types of violence. Then we will explore how the five strategies of risk reduction can be applied to the risk
                      of violence. Each facility needs to build a “balanced portfolio” of risk reduction among the five strategies. We will discuss overall policies you can implement, such as reporting, training,
                      support for staff and residents, and weapons possession. Finally, we will show how to apply these strategies to other risks in the workplace, so that you can build a preparedness plan
                      to address each of the risks your facility faces.
