The Theft Prevention Guide for Senior Living

Stefanie Corbett, DHA

Theft is an issue facing healthcare facilities of all sizes. In senior living facilities, money and medications can be stolen—not to mention the problem of identity theft. Perpetrators can include employees, visitors, residents, or vendors. Without policies in place, it is difficult to prevent or even investigate these incidents.

The Theft Prevention Guide for Senior Living provides tips and actionable advice about theft prevention in senior living facilities, with a focus on the areas most vulnerable to theft. Author Stefanie Corbett, DHA, aims to help operators and staff protect their residents from financial exploitation, as well as other forms of theft, through prevention and early intervention. Recognizing warning signs and building awareness among staff and residents is crucial in all residential settings.

This book will walk you through four key actions for protecting your residents from theft:

  • Prevent—implement training and foster awareness
  • Recognize—spot the warning signs and take action
  • Record—document your findings
  • Report—tell the appropriate authorities and trigger responses
