6VAC35-101-1110. Administrative confinement.

A. Residents shall be placed in administrative confinement only by the facility administrator or designee, as a last resort for the safety of the residents. The reason for such placement shall be documented in the resident's case record.

B. Residents who are placed in administrative confinement shall be housed no more than two to a room. Single occupancy rooms shall be available when indicated for residents with severe medical disabilities, residents suffering from serious mental illness, sexual predators, residents who are likely to be exploited or victimized by others, and residents who have other special needs for single housing.

C. Residents who are placed in administrative confinement shall be afforded basic living conditions approximating those available to the facility's general population and, as provided for in approved procedures, shall be afforded privileges similar to those of the general population. Exceptions may be made in accordance with established procedures when justified by clear and substantiated evidence. If residents who are placed in administrative confinement are confined to a room or placed in isolation, the provisions of 6VAC35-101-1100 (room confinement and isolation) and 6VAC35-1140 (monitoring restrained residents) apply, as applicable.

D. Administrative confinement means the placement of a resident in a special housing unit or designated individual cell that is reserved for special management of residents for purposes of protective custody or the special management of residents whose behavior presents a serious threat to the safety and security of the facility, staff, general population, or themselves. For the purpose of this section, protective custody shall mean the separation of a resident from the general population for protection from or for other residents for reasons of health or safety.
