Midwest Insurance Group Welcomes Beth Alford as Risk Management Consultant
Indianapolis, Indiana (May 9, 2018) – Midwest Insurance Group, formed for Indiana healthcare firms operating in the senior living market, has just brought Beth Alford on as its new contracted Risk Management Consultant.
Beth Alford, RN, BSN brings over 25 years of experience working in nursing home services and over 10 years of Risk Management and Claims services. In response to the increasing frequency of suits filed against nursing homes, Ms. Alford founded Professional Liability Insurance Services, LLC, also known as Mitigation Solution, in order to provide nursing homes with loss prevention tools to improve resident safety and reduce the risk of lawsuits.
Ms. Alford has previously worked with the Illinois Department of Public Aid as a surveyor, and has held the positions of Director of Nursing, vice president of nursing, and corporate nurse. In her career, she has developed and implemented many of the policies in place throughout today’s nursing home industry in addition to guidelines for documentation and resident assessment. She is a well-known speaker in long term care and for nursing home groups and associations, and provides expert nursing review in addition to Risk Management and Nursing Facility Consultation.
“We are extremely excited to welcome Beth to the Midwest Insurance Group team,” said Chris Murray, President of Midwest Insurance Group. “Beth’s concentration of experience in our space, along with her extensive knowledge with nursing home Risk Management and Claims services, will allow her to have an immediate impact working effectively with our MGA/Program Administrator units and agency partners.”
