As documented in 6400.15,a self-assessment of each home serving eight or fewer individuals, within 3 to 6 months prior to the expiration date of the agency’s certificate of compliance, to measure and record compliance.

Ongoing monitoring of abuse can be difficult when using paper or other traditional methods. Current passive systems rely on the actual user to document themselves as the abuser which very rare. With Optonome, providers are able to use real-time sensor data to compare actual behaviors of all known direct care workers, friends, family members, advocates or the general public in the vicinity of the resident without requiring any documentation of abuse.
Such behavioral information can be used to proactively document incidents and document reportable and non-reportable incidents required time frames.
