SERVICE PLANS.

(a) Before receiving services, the extended congregate care administrator or manager must develop a preliminary service plan that includes an assessment of whether the resident meets the facility’s residency criteria, an appraisal of the resident’s unique physical, psychological and social needs and preferences, and an evaluation of the facility’s ability to meet the resident’s needs.

(b) Within 14 days of receiving services, the extended congregate care administrator or manager must coordinate the development of a written service plan that takes into account the resident’s health assessment obtained pursuant to subsection (6); the resident’s unique physical, psychological and social needs and preferences; and how the facility will meet the resident’s needs including the following if required:

  1. Health monitoring,
  2. Assistance with personal care services,
  3. Nursing services,
  4. Supervision,
  5. Special diets,
  6. Ancillary services,
  7. The provision of other services such as transportation and supportive services; and,
  8. The manner of service provision, and identification of service providers, including family and friends, in keeping with resident preferences.

(c) Pursuant to the definitions of “shared responsibility” and “managed risk” as provided in Section 429.02, F.S., the service plan must be developed and agreed upon by the resident or the resident’s representative or designee, surrogate, guardian, or attorney-in-fact, and must reflect the responsibility and right of the resident to consider options and assume risks when making choices pertaining to the resident’s service needs and preferences.

(d) The service plan must be reviewed and updated quarterly to reflect any changes in the manner of service provision, accommodate any changes in the resident’s physical or mental status, or pursuant to recommendations for modifications in the resident’s care as documented in the nursing assessment.
