Under the proposed rule, if a physician diagnoses a resident with this condition, the RCFE would not be required to implement dementia standards of care.
Perhaps the most unusual provision in the regulations is the requirement that the RCFE give a 30-day notice to the state, residents, and responsible parties when it plans to discontinue advertising dementia care services.
In California, where assisted living care is provided in Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFEs), the new rules eliminate the need for RCFEs to receive prior approval from the state's Department of Social Services (DSS) when admitting or retaining residents with certain health-related conditions.
As a result of the changes, valuable time and dollars will be saved at both ends of the exceptions process, by RCFEs and DSS alike, making resident care delivery more effective and efficient.
