Beth Norton understands that a healthcare provider’s policies and procedures are only as valuable as they are practicable. “It’s difficult to appreciate the everyday challenges healthcare personnel face without having walked the floor in their shoes,” says Beth. Beth’s nursing background allows to anticipate the barriers to policy implementation on the front end and to communicate its purpose and facilitate the implementation process on the back end.
In addition to advising healthcare clients on risk, operational, and regulatory matters, Beth has a passion for educating healthcare workers, particularly nursing professionals, in regulatory, business and litigation matters. “Nurses know that I understand them, and for that reason, they trust me when I tell them something is important or effective.” Beth has recently enjoyed presenting on such topics as the importance of good nursing documentation, the top 10 reasons nurses (and their employers) get sued, the Anti-Kickback and Stark statutes, and innovations in payor/provider relationships.
