Risk management

This is the practice of minimizing potential liability exposure for a facility or individual. A provider’s overall risk management goal is to enhance the safety of residents, visitors and employees while also minimizing the possibility of financial loss to the provider. Unlike many professions in healthcare, there are no set education requirements for risk managers. Many, however, possess a bachelor’s degree in nursing or some other degree in healthcare or law.
