The administrator of an adult residential care facility that provides services for residents who have mental illness shall ensure that a written intake assessment is prepared by a licensed mental health professional prior to acceptance of the client. This assessment may be provided by a student intern if the work is supervised by a properly licensed mental health professional. Facility administrators may utilize placement agencies, including, but not limited to, county clinics for referrals and assessments.


Within 30 days after an inspection of an adult residential care facility the State Department of Social Services shall provide the licensee with a copy of the licensing report verifying compliance or noncompliance by the facility with applicable licensing provisions. This report shall not include confidential client information, and copies of reports within the last 24 months shall be provided by the facility to the public upon request.
