MMIC Offers LAI Members Free Webinar on Reducing Falls 

From preventing falls to improving care handoffs to bringing out the very best in your care providers, MMIC helps clients address challenges large and small. Their comprehensive insurance coverage and innovative risk management solutions are built on their conviction that good care is good business. 

MMIC starts with the benefit of 35 years of claim experience and a deep understanding of the risks involved in caring well for vulnerable populations. In-house experts and their local, Iowa team of claim and risk professionals apply this hard-won wisdom as they explore your organization’s own experience and learn more about your aspirations. 

LAI members are welcome to explore a taste of what MMIC can offer your teams via a webinar they recently produced, entitled: Preventing and Reducing Falls: Using senior living malpractice claim data to guide changes 

This webinar will provide you with the knowledge to:

  1. List the most frequent and expensive malpractice allegations made against senior living organizations.
  1. Identify that failure to ensure resident safety—primarily falls—was the most frequent and costly allegation made against senior living organizations.
  2. Differentiate the causes and contributing factors of breakdowns in care processes, teamwork and systems that lead to resident injury, malpractice claims and poor business performance.
  3. Implement a comprehensive falls prevention program to reduce resident injury and malpractice claims and improve business performance. 

LAI members can view the webinar here.   

LAI has partnered with LMC and MMIC to secure discounted rates for LAI members for professional liability insurance. Please contact Jack Carra (515-237-0189) at LMC for more information and make sure to mention that you are a LAI member.

Annual Sponsor Spotlight – LMC Insurance & Risk Management 

Many risks faced by LeadingAge members can be managed by insurance, risk management, or a combination of both. But how can your organization’s leaders better understand critical employee health, business, and financial risk elements to better mitigate risk? 

As the health care industry evolves, so must we.  Insurers view risk more holistically, including data points never previously considered, such as how health care benefits are administered when making underwriting assumptions and how health and wellness program decisions impact safety and job performance. 

To ensure proper protection and risk management strategies are in place, every exposure needs proper attention. Comprehensive risk assessment, conducted with employee benefit data and risk program data empowers strategic decision-making, and is key to understanding the cause and effect of strategic decisions being made within your organization. 

With a full spectrum of value-added professional services and a focus on crucial areas like OSHA and DOL compliance, on-the-job injuries, health care consumerism and wellness, and new exposures like cyber-attacks, LMC’s dedicated health care team goes beyond traditional insurance, employee benefits, and risk management programs to help LeadingAge members manage and mitigate business and employee population risk.  Click here to learn more and meet our health care team.
