22VAC40-73-370. Respite care.

If an assisted living facility provides respite care as defined in 22VAC40-73-10, the requirements of this chapter apply to the respite care, except as follows:

1. For individuals in respite care, the ISP shall be completed prior to the person participating in respite care and need not include expected outcome.

2. At the time an individual returns for respite care, the facility shall reevaluate the person's condition and care needs, and as needed, ensure that the uniform assessment instrument, the individualized service plan, and medication orders are updated. The reevaluation shall include observation of the person; interviews with the individual and his legal representative, if any; and consultation with others knowledgeable about the person, as appropriate. The reevaluation shall indicate in writing whether or not the person's condition or care needs have changed and specify any changes. The reevaluation shall be signed and dated by the staff person completing the reevaluation and by the individual in respite care or his legal representative and shall be retained in the individual's record.

3. If the period of time between respite care stays is six months or longer, a new physical examination report shall be required prior to the individual returning for respite care, except that a new tuberculosis screening would only be required one time per year. The examination shall take place within 30 days prior to the person's return for respite care.

4. The record for the individual in respite care shall include the dates of respite care.

5. The medication review required by 22VAC40-73-690 does not apply to individuals in respite care.
