Elder Justice Act-What LTC Providers Need To Know
Product Code: 216

The Elder Justice Act (EJA), enacted as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), sets forth a series of provisions designed to prevent and respond to abuse, neglect, and exploitation of older people. The EJA establishes reporting requirements regarding suspected crimes against residents of nursing homes. The specific reporting requirements of the Act do not apply to home care or housing with services staff. Tight deadlines are specified for reporting of any suspected crime with monetary penalties for failure to report.

This webinar will address reporting requirements including:
  • What actions must be reported
  • Who to report to
  • Who is required to report
  • What are the timelines for reporting
  • What are the penalties for failing to report
  • What notices to post
  • What notices to provide employees

With penalties up to $300,000, you cannot afford not to understand EJA.
