Why Risk Management?
Risk management is a way for organizations to manage activities, both within and beyond their control, and in so doing reduce the risk of damage, exposure to legal liability, or injury to employees or clients.
Safety procedures and risk management programs have a dramatic effect on employee injury rates and on the amount of damage resulting from natural events and human actions.
Risk management allows your organization to move toward its goals and objectives on a more direct, efficient, and effective path.
The key to success is for every staff member to understand that risk management is the responsibility of everyone—from the top administrator to front line caregivers. It’s only as a team that you succeed.
QFI understands that long-term care facilities provide a variety of services to residents, and the potential for injury is significant in the frail, elderly population that you serve. When employees practice safety measures in all they do they protect not only themselves, but also the people they have been called to serve. We work with your safety committee to ensure they understand the value they bring to your facility so that safety becomes an ingrained, integral part of your business.
