Homecare employers are responsible for providing a safe working environment for employees. Unlike other employers, they primarily send personnel into patient homes. The workplace is not only decentralized, but is also subject to many variations – all of which could cause liability. Homecare employees face risks ranging from patients’ infectious diseases (a lesson learned from the current pandemic), to animals, and even firearms. An employee can be harmed by any number of things; it’s the employer’s job to prevent this.


Prevention involves considering agency policies and standards, infection control, and discharge procedures that clearly spell out how to handle patient discharge when safety is an issue. Employers must also consider other aspects of safety and training. Employee training should include proper use of PPE. Teaching staff when to leave if safety becomes a concern is also imperative. However physical safety is not the only issue. Harassment and discrimination can also take place in a patient’s home and homecare employers must act on such reports. This jam-packed session will examine these concerns and how to respond to patients in a manner that complies with the CoPs and with an employer’s obligations to employees.



  • Identify common operational risks in patients’ homes
  • Determine employers’ legal responsibilities for employee safety
  • Understand obligations regarding harassment and discrimination in the home
  • Develop tools to identify potential risks
  • Employ common methods for mitigating those risks
  • Respond to employee concerns
  • Communicate effectively with patients and clients who pose a risk to staff

 Who Should Attend

This informative session is designed for administrators, human resources staff, managers, clinical directors, and owners.
