As an administrative professional, you are the go-to for questions about the inner workings, policies, and history of your healthcare facility. It is equally important for decisions made during board meetings to be properly captured in the event of the need to show that the board acted in accordance with the bylaws. In this session, Kate will discuss:
- The importance of understanding the facility bylaws, policies, and procedures;
- Ways to serve as a resource for your administrator;
- How to capture references to bylaws and policies in minutes.
