The success of our corporate ethics and compliance program relies on high-level oversight from our board of directors and senior management, as well as buy-in, support, and accountability from employees.
The quality and compliance committee of our board of directors provides regular guidance regarding the direction of the company’s ethics and compliance program. In addition, the committee receives regular reports on the status of the ethics and compliance program. Our Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer has a direct reporting line to the quality and compliance committee.
Our Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer oversees the ethics and compliance program and evaluates compliance issues/concerns within the organization. The Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer helps ensure that the board of directors, management, and employees are in compliance with the rules and regulations of regulatory agencies, that company policies and procedures are being followed, and that behavior in the organization meets the company’s Code of Conduct & Ethics.
Each employee has a shared responsibility and commitment to our mission of health care service to our clients. Ethics and compliance are the responsibility of every Help at Home employee, and every employee is required to always do the right thing, without exception, and to make all clinical decisions based solely on the needs of the patient.
