Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

Ready-made compliance policies and procedures that you can adapt to your facility.

Policies and procedures are the backbone of any compliance program. Compliance professionals must ensure that their policies and procedures are effective and up to date. To ensure effectiveness, the OIG expects hospitals to regularly re-evaluate their policies and procedures.

Insight from a former Inspector General

The Healthcare Compliance Professional's Guide to Policies and Procedures is written by former Inspector General Richard P. Kusserow. He has filled this book with sample policies and procedures that hospitals can use to strengthen their existing compliance program or help build a new one.
