Compliance at the Workplace…How not to get fired
What is Compliance?
Compliance is defined as state of being in accordance with established guidelines or specifications. Compliance ensures that organizations are abiding by both industry regulations and government legislation, including state and federal laws. Compliance programs efforts are designed to establish a culture within healthcare facilities that promotes prevention, detection and resolution of instances of conduct that do not conform to Federal and State laws; as well as the hospital’s ethical and business policies as established in policies and procedures. Compliance is a prevalent business concern to healthcare organizations in the US, due to an ever-increasing number of regulations that require healthcare industries to be vigilant about maintaining a full understanding of their regulatory compliance requirements. The goal of a Compliance Program is to ensure health care facilities operates in accordance with laws and regulations. Healthcare facilities are required to maintain and follow regulatory compliance. Regulatory compliance is an organization’s adherence to laws, regulations, guidelines and specifications relevant to its business, and noncompliance will often result in violations which are punishable and can result in federal fines.
