need to decide how you plan to run your business.
Start with the basics. I recommend forming a
corporation, it offers the best protection overall.
Depending on your particular State's requirements, this
may be a general C-Corp or a Not fr Profit entity under

patient sign-in sheets, employee time cards, transaction
records and other daily necessities.

every job is essential. From the moment a patient walks in
through the door there should be a plan for how to assist them
until they walk back out the door.
