Are Your Home Care Policies and Procedures Up-To-Date?

Home Care Policies and Procedures

Not long ago, we had the privilege of doing an organizational assessment in a small rural home care agency. When we asked about the policy and procedure manuals, we were told they were at least 15 years old, and had not been updated.

In the home care business, especially with smaller agencies, it’s easy to overlook the need for well-documented policies and procedures. However, home care policy and procedure manuals are very important for your agency. They provide a framework for your operations, and help ensure you remain compliant with state requirements and industry regulations. A home care manual also makes your values and expectations clear to employees, defines training procedures, and sets administrative policies.
