317:30-5-95.38.Nursing services for children (inpatient psychiatric acute only)
[Revised 07-01-10]
Each facility must have a qualified Director of Psychiatric Nursing. In addition to the Director of Nursing, there must be adequate numbers of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and mental health workers to provide nursing care necessary under the active treatment program and to maintain progress notes on each member. In a Community Based Transitional RTC, an RN must be on site at least one hour each day and be available 24 hours a day when not on site. A registered nurse must document member progress at least weekly except in a CBT where the requirement will be twice a month. The progress note must contain recommendations for revisions in the individual plan of care, as needed, as well as an assessment of the member's progress as it relates to the individual plan of care goals and objectives.
