How to Prepare For the Unexpected

Being prepared for the unexpected in your medical practice is a thought that doesn’t cross your mind often.

  • What happens if there’s a merger or sale of your practice or spa?

But, what if you didn’t have time to come up with a Plan B?

  • What happens if there’s a death?
  • What happens in case of an accident?
  • What happens in case of a fire or natural disaster?
  • What happens in the case of a long-term illness?
  • How will you take care of your staff?

It’s all about planning. The key is to plan now so when the unexpected hits, you’re ready and prepared.

Remember that, in the blink of an eye, it could all change.  A long-term or terminal illness.  Divorce.  Fire.  You name it, we’ve seen it happen in a practice, and, unfortunately, there are always two common denominators that turn a life-changing event into a virtual tornado: the practice owners never saw it coming, and didn’t have a contingency plan.

If you’re unprepared, a catastrophic event has the power to bring down your entire business.

In this four-part series, Jay Shorr, founder and managing partner of Shorr Solutions explains how to prepare your practice for the unexpected.

After all you’ve invested so much in your business, it’s important to protect it.
