CODE OF ETHICS
Most Administrators are aware that there is a requirement, as the designated "administrator-of-record" (AOR) to display the "Certificate of Licensure" in a conspicuous place in the facility... (OAC 490:10-13-2(e)). That's probably not a surprise to anyone...we all talk about where our license is hanging and it's just "known" that your license must be hanging.
But DID YOU KNOW...
In the previous subsection (merely the page prior to where you will find the requirement) that
there is a similar requirement to display a copy of the CODE OF ETHICS? (OAC490:10-13-1(d))
OSBELTCA's Code of Ethics was adopted from the American College of Health Care Administrators' Code of Ethics and to help you comply, we have placed here two options for you to print and frame in your facility...
We have created an abbreviated, perhaps more aesthetically pleasing version (Word doc version) (opens in a new window) that is ready to print...
Suggest printing on a suitable paper/stock and framing alongside your license. New licensees are all given a copy of this with their new license.
Moreover, the importance of the Code of Ethics cannot be underestimated... YOUR ethics (and your attitude as a professional) will have a lot to say about whether you're a "good" administrator or an "excellent" one.
"Authenticity is more than speaking;
Authenticity is also about doing.
Every decision we make says
something about who we are."
