37. Unannounced Visit: Sleeping Staff

We would love to hear about  an incident at your facility. Feel free to share in the box below (optional).

Facility Type: 730/733 (Group Home)

Investigation Findings
Licensing Program Analysts (LPAs) made an unannounced case management inspection at the facility and met with staff who assisted with the inspection.

Upon LPAs’ arrival, both staff were asleep on the couch. LPA knocked a few times before staff heard LPA at the door. Staff got up, put his shoes on, and opened the door.

LPAs conducted a walk-through of the facility. LPAs could not review client files as Unity Care #2’s Clinician has all client binders, and is auditing them. LPAs interviewed staff present about their individual needs and program goals. Water temperature measured at 109.4 degrees Fahrenheit, which is within the required temperature range.

LPAs reviewed facility menu and food on hand. The food present corresponded to the menu. Staff stated that for the Shepherd’s Pie scheduled for tonight, they would not know how to make that, so they will substitute that meal for something comparable.

LPA requested Staff then print out all clients’ Needs and Services Plans/Case Plans to review. Staff printed these out.

Deficiencies cited – See D-Page. An exit interview conducted with administrator, who created each POC. A copy of this report was left with the facility, as well as appeal rights.
