Session Description:
This session will discuss the often competing interests of resident safety and resident rights. The presenters will focus on thorny issues such as: sexual intimacy and cognitively impaired residents; self-administration of drugs; uses of alternative and complementary medicine - how far do resident rights extend?; potentially harmful or self-destructive behaviors such as, but not limited to alcohol consumption when contraindicated, snacks that would be inappropriate for a resident with diabetes or dysphagia, and allowing a resident to have a diet that is contrary to the best medical advice. Practical and proactive advice will be provided to help all clinicians successfully deal with the issues described above.

Learning Objective(s):

  • Appreciate how difficult it can be to resolve the frequent conflicts between resident rights and resident safety.
  • Recognize proven strategies aimed at mitigating the risk of liability and promoting resident health.
  • Discuss how medical directors and attending physicians can successfully manage the inevitable and difficult issues involved with this aspect of resident care.
  • Review case studies on how to proactively deal with the often competing interests of resident rights and resident safety.
