Rising Treetops at Oakhurst (RTO) is committed to providing services of the highest quality to its clients/consumers and their families and while doing so, to be in full compliance with all federal, state and local laws and regulations. RTO recognizes that a critical aspect of its Standards of Conduct involves fostering a culture that promotes responsible, honest conduct, transparency in all business transactions and adherence to the laws and regulations of the government agencies that fund its work and promulgate standards of care. In order to achieve these important goals, RTO works to facilitate prevention of improper or illegal activities and to provide mechanisms to detect any violations. The agency takes prompt action to resolve instances of conduct that do not conform to federal, state, and private payer healthcare program requirements, general legal standards and RTO’s internal ethical standards and business policies. RTO is also committed to protecting from retaliation, its employees and others who in good faith report problems and concerns. A threat or act of retaliation against an employee or other individual who has reported improper or illegal conduct can threaten the integrity of the agency’s dedication to these standards by deterring the reporting of suspected misconduct and can limit RTO’s ability to monitor and resolve issues of compliance.
This policy applies to all employees, volunteers and directors and officers of the Board of Directors, and related parties if relevant (independent contractors, vendors, consultants). RTO’s Corporate Compliance Program description can be found here: Corporate Compliance Program
