10 Warning Signs of Crossing Professional Boundaries, Healthcare Video Training Playlist, and Working With Hospitals Who Want to Dump Patients
Dear :

Being a healthcare professional can be exhausting and rewarding at the same time. Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt any or all of the below?
  • As a female, with a career in healthcare you are a double or triple duty caregiver. You give care at work and at home for children and possibly aging parents. Family expects this of you because you have a healthcare background. Honestly, how much more can you be expected to do?
  • The family members of your clients or patients create drama. You see family walking toward you and you’d like to run in the other direction. If they didn’t interfere, caring for your clients would be so much easier!
  • Co-workers don’t pull their weight. They’re here for a paycheck, not because they care. You feel that work is dumped on you because you will get the job done.
  • There is little support in knowing how to respond to difficult clients or patients. Some of them scare you. You don’t want to neglect their care but you simply don’t know what else to try.
Working in the healthcare industry is challenging. You love your job. But training and support is not always readily available. Management may not be approachable.

Agree?

Then you’ll LOVE this opportunity to receive a little inspiration, an ear to bend, and someone to give you confidence in your abilities. Plus, a realistic discussion about hospitals not wanting to admit your patients and dumping them back on you for care.

I’ve been a family caregiver and a professional caregiving advocate for more than 20 years. The benefits of collaborating with healthcare professionals has been of great benefit to my clients.

10 Warning Signs of Crossing Professional Boundaries: When Family Caregiver Stress Pulls at the Heartstrings of Caring Professionals
As increasing emotional and physical stress is experienced by family caregivers, care professionals working in healthcare offices, care communities, and for care agencies have a heightened responsibility to maintain clear and appropriate professional boundaries. If you are a healthcare professional feeling pulled into family disagreements, talking to family members about areas outside of your scope of practice, or feeling that you understand problems better than the family or other members of your care team, you have violated professional boundaries. You cannot be a friend and a caring professional. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE.

And a bonus article for this month on a hot topic, working with hospitals who refuse to admit and dump your clients or patients back on you.
Older Adults Placed at Healthcare Risks by Hospitals Seeking to Avoid Financial Readmissions Penalties
On October 2, 2012 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, through the Affordable Care Act Section 3025, began implementing policies to reduce hospital re-admissions by older adult Medicare beneficiaries. (1)  What this means for older adults is that hospitals are financially penalized if there is a return to any hospital within 30 days of discharge for specific conditions. Surprise exists that hospitals have found a way around the readmission penalties placing the healthcare of older adults at risk.  CLICK HERE TO READ MORE.
