Representatives from the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) will be conducting a review of programs that provide community-based residential services and supports for adult individuals with an intellectual disability during the months of November and December 2011. The review will focus on randomly selected community residential services and sponsored residential programs licensed by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services and Intermediate Care Facilities for the Mentally Retarded (ICFMR).
The OIG review will be unannounced and every effort will be made to have the visits occur at times when the individual(s) supported by the program would be present. Each review will have six focus areas, of which four are expected to take place on-site: (1) an environmental review, (2) record reviews, (3) interviews of individuals in residence, and (4) interviews of staff present at the time of the review. Two review focus areas may occur on site or may be completed by phone: (5) interview of program leadership and (6) interview of key person(s) in the life of the individual. In all instances, the identified Case Manager for individuals interviewed will be interviewed.
