Breaking the law: Not something you want to be doing…

A very quick item this week, mostly because I want you to have the opportunity to take advantage of a resource that I think is well worth your time and you only need your ears…if you’re thinking podcast, you’re thinking in the right direction. For those you that might not be familiar with Gosselin/Martin Associates, they are a highly respected (at least by me—and I know I’m not alone) organization (and I’m paraphrasing a bit here) devoted to the systemic improvement to healthcare facilities management. From recruitment, education, mentoring, etc., Gosselin/Martin Associates are a most reliable resource on so many levels, but for this week, I would encourage you to check out their High Reliability—The Healthcare FM Podcast to check out the current climate as it relates to the legal ramifications of healthcare facilities management. As a going concern, amidst our current state of being, being familiar with the legal implications of what we do has arguably never been more important and the likelihood that that importance will increase is virtually a sure thing. As with all things everywhere, there is only so much black and white interpretation, etc., to go around, but I think you’ll find this discussion to be quite illuminating, if only to validate what you might already be thinking/experiencing, etc. The blog post for the podcast can be found here and I very much encourage you to subscribe. I find it very stimulating to listen while I am walking in the morning (bedtime probably won’t work—this won’t put you to sleep!), but I suspect you’ll find your own “best time.” I hope you take a few moments to check out High Reliability.

As always, hope you are well and staying safe!
