The State Attorney General’s Role in Monitoring Non-Profit Health Care Governance [PODCAST]

Directors are constantly focused on the exercise of their fiduciary duties⁠—what they are and how they should be applied. For nonprofit boards, the state attorney general has a similar interest, for the AG has primary jurisdiction over how nonprofit directors exercise their duties. In the latest episode of Governing Health, Michael Peregrine welcomes back Jim Sheehan, Chief of the New York Attorney General’s Charities Bureau, to discuss:

  • The State Attorney General’s Charities Bureau expectations of board fiduciary duties, and its role in monitoring board members’ exercise of these duties

  • Quality of care investigations into charitable organizations’ institutional controls, risk detections and responses

  • Perspectives on The Lutheran Care Network enforcement action in New York State

  • Enforcement remedies sought from board members, including bans on future nonprofit board service

  • Allegations of conflict of interest by board members

  • The role of the Audit Committee in maintaining oversight of the organization’s financial affairs
