Adult Day Services: Physical Site Requirements for Adult Day Centers – Virtual Classroom
December 13 @ 13:00 - 14:00
What does a welcoming and safe environment look like for Adult Day Services? All centers are mandated to follow the physical site standards provided in the Adult Day Care Center Rule. Many Correction Orders delivered by the Department of Human Services include violations to the physical site requirements. These can easily be avoided by understanding these requirements and taking the time to ensure that the center has them all and keeps them in good working condition! Physical site-related topics to be discussed will include: occupancy codes, space requirements and physical plant standards (temperature, ventilation, equipment), safety requirements related to incidents and emergencies, hazardous materials, equipment and furniture, kitchen requirements for food prepared on site, designated smoking areas, and pets. Information regarding the physical plant and population of people supported are included in the Program Abuse Prevention Plan (PAPP). Regulations regarding the PAPP and the standards for development and maintenance will be reviewed as well.
