Step Seven: Enforcing Disciplinary Standards Through Well-Publicized Guidelines
Finally, the last step that a physician practice may wish to take is to incorporate measures into its practice to ensure that practice employees understand the consequences if they behave in a non-compliant manner. An effective physician practice compliance program includes procedures for enforcing and disciplining individuals who violate the practice’s compliance or other practice standards. Enforcement and disciplinary provisions are necessary to add credibility and integrity to a compliance program.
The OIG recommends that a physician practice’s enforcement and disciplinary mechanisms ensure that violations of the practice’s compliance policies will result in consistent and appropriate sanctions, including the possibility of termination, against the offending individual. At the same time, it is advisable that the practice’s enforcement and disciplinary procedures be flexible enough to account for mitigating or aggravating circumstances. The procedures might also stipulate that individuals who fail to detect or report violations of the compliance program may also be subject to discipline. Disciplinary actions could include: Warnings (oral); reprimands (written); probation; demotion; temporary suspension; termination; restitution of damages; and referral for criminal prosecution
