Adult care residences. Adds definitions of “qualified assessor” and “independent physician” and provides that an evaluation for an auxiliary grant may be performed by a qualified assessor. Currently this evaluation may be performed only by a case manager, which is defined as an employee of a human services agency who is qualified and designated to develop and coordinate plans of care. A uniform assessment instrument, under the bill's provisions, need not be completed upon a person's admission to an adult care residence if such an instrument was completed by a case manager or other qualified assessor within 90 days prior to admission unless there is a change in the resident's condition which would affect the admission. The bill provides that the uniform assessment instrument does not need to be completed more often than once every 12 months unless there is a change in the resident's condition that appears to warrant a change in the resident's level of care. If the adult care residence, the resident's representative, the resident's physician, or the state or local department of social services requests an independent assessment, the assessment shall be completed using the uniform assessment instrument. The Code currently provides that a case manager and other appropriate persons will complete the uniform assessment instrument for public pay residents and that an independent private physician will complete it for private pay residents, unless the resident requests that a case manager do so. The bill provides that unless a private pay resident requests that the uniform assessment instrument be completed by a case manager or other qualified assessor, qualified staff of the adult care residence or an independent private physician may complete the assessment for private pay residents. The cost of administering the uniform assessment instrument for persons already in adult care residences will be borne by the entity designated pursuant to regulations of the State Board of Social Services. The bill changes a statutory provision that regulations promulgated by the State Board “shall include standards for staffing” to say that the residence shall have adequate and sufficient staff to provide services to attain and maintain the physical, mental and psychological well-being of each resident. The list of prohibited medical conditions for an adult care residence is clarified and revised. Certain prohibited conditions may be cared for in an adult care residence for private pay residents by a licensed physician, nurse or home care organization. There is also a provision that hospice care may be provided in an adult care residence.
