Admission and Discharge

Admission and Discharge

Exclusion / Continued Stay/ Transition

The Program Administrator will review all allocations and screen all applicants. The Admission Policy sets the criteria for exclusion. The Discharge Policy outlines the criteria for termination of services or the conditions for continued stay.

The Individual, legally authorized representative with the individual’s permission or the staff of Community Direct Services can request discharge, if it is determined that the clinical and/or medical needs of the individual can no longer be met with the current services. However, alternate services will be offered if available or the individual will be assisted with securing another provider.

Individuals being transferred into an alternate service will receive support and supervision from CDS staff to assist in a smooth transitioning process.
