As We Have Come to Expect . . .

January 12, 2021

We should not be particularly surprised when DBHDS creates a system that is not user friendly, and want to alert you to a significant issue with the required “Restraint/Seclusion” report.  This year it is being done “on-line” by filling in fields in a multipage form (Survey Monkey type) which requires a form for each licensed service.

When you complete your entry, there is no way to print the information that you have submitted, nor will screen prints capture the content you have submitted.  Bottom line – you have no record of compliance with the requirement.  We suggest that you request a verification (that may or may not be successful!) and that you do a memo to file.
