H340 Procedures for Compliance Essay Project
It’s time to describe the monitoring tools for your two compliance plans (hand-washing between patients and the use of fire extinguisher) in a way that all employees will understand at a large medical facility where you are the Compliance Officer.
Your assignment is to write a 2-3-page section describing the monitoring tools for each compliance plan. (That means a total of 4-6 pages for the two plans; you can write them in one Word document.)
Then, create a 1-page procedure based on one of your monitoring tools. Monitoring tools you should cover for each plan should relate to the policies and procedures you developed in previous modules.
You chose policies/procedures under the key compliance areas of Compliance Standards, High-Level Responsibility, Education, Communication, Monitoring/Auditing (for Safety), Enforcement/Discipline, and Response/Prevention. (Check them out if you forget! Remember, you may have written about different policies/procedures for the two different compliance plans.)
