Allegation
Clients are not receiving P&I funds in a timely manner.

Investigation Findings
LPA arrived at the care home today to open a complaint investigation into the allegation that clients are not receiving P&I funds in a timely manner.

LPA spoke with Administrator regarding the procedures of distributing resident P&I funds. Administrator states that the resident P&I funds come to the care home around the 3rd of each month. The care home waits to collect the checks and sends them via overnight mail to the corporate office who processes the checks for deposit into the residents’ bank accounts. Administrator states that the residents have not received their March P&I funds as of today, but is expected to be received tomorrow, 3/17/17.

Based on LPA’s observations and interviews which were conducted and records reviewed, the preponderance of evidence standard has been met, therefore, the above allegation is found to be SUBSTANTIATED. Per California Code of Regulations, Title 22 Division 6, Chapter 8, deficiencies are being cited on the attached 9099D during this visit. Exit interview held, Appeal Rights discussed, Copy of report given.
