EVALUATOR MANUAL

GENERAL LICENSING REQUIREMENTS

80075

HEALTH-RELATED SERVICES (Continued)

80075

(j)(1)

POLICY

The first aid kit may contain other first aid items specified in the first aid manual, such as Ipecac syrup and universal antidote (activated charcoal) used in poisoning cases. However, care staff must be reminded that use of these antidotes must not occur without the recommendation of the local poison information center, hospital, or physician.

(k)(4)

POLICY

It is recommended that the licensee obtain a signed consent from the authorized representative to permit the authorization of medical care. It is mandatory that licensees of children’s facilities obtain such consent for medical care.

The form LIC 627 is available to licensees for this purpose.

See California Code of Regulations Section 83070 for Small Family Homes and Section 84070 for Group Homes.

(m)(3)

POLICY

When there is a dispute with the licensee/administrator over whether medications shall be centrally stored, the licensing agency shall contact a physician to obtain a third opinion. In most community care facilities, the “condition or habits of other persons” in care will require that medications be centrally stored.

(n)

POLICY

Centrally stored medications, kept in the refrigerator, shall be maintained in a locked receptacle, drawer, or container, separate from food items.
