Consulting

Since 2008, I have provided consulting services to a wide range of institutions throughout the US.

Here are a few short case studies of what I have accomplished:

Joint Commission

 

Most recently, I have engaged with Joint Commission Resources (JCR). Their mission to continually improve the safety and quality of healthcare aligns with mine. Through JCR, I am able to provide customized education, advisory services, and evaluations on the topics of healthcare life safety, the environment of care, security services, and emergency management.

Madison Center

Metro Indianapolis, IN

This project involved working with Madison Center, a mental-health facility, and school in Indiana to find ways for the client to cut costs, improve quality, and remain financially stable.

I worked for over nine months, both on- and off-site, to complete these projects. On-site visits included facility evaluations, safety reviews, inventories of collateral and materials, staff interviews and reviews, budgetary and personnel meetings, and more. Off-site, I evaluated site needs, wrote reports, and created substantial financial reporting and recommendations. In all cases, I balanced patient needs against the long-term viability of the institution.

This project involved a substantial review of safety issues surrounding behavioral healthcare safety for patients and staff,

Wayside Youth and Family Services

Metro Boston

This health and human services agency located west of Boston serves a variety of clients over a seventeen-site campus. The sites include residential homes for teens, shelters for families, mental health facilities a school, and more.

I was brought in to do a complete survey including a complete on-site inspection including condition, suitability for purpose, liability issues, and compliance issues.

I also reviewed contracts and made value-added suggestions, saving the clients tens of thousands of dollars which could then go back into client services. After the survey, I provided a comprehensive report with findings and recommendations to the client.
