NYS DOH Publishes Two DALs

Shelley Sabo in NYSCAL Notes

The Department has issued two DALs. The first, DAL 14-15, is a warm weather advisory. The DAL outlines the expectations of the Department with respect to resident safety and level of comfort during the summer months.  The letter outlines heat-related conditions, signs, symptoms and management of those conditions as well as the steps to be taken by adult care facilities in warm weather. Readers may find this DAL on the NYSCAL website at http://www.illuminweb.com/wp-content/uploads/ill-mo-uploads/72/2744/mm14-344a.pdf.

The second DAL, DHCBS 14-10, concerns the 2011, 2012, and 2013 statistical reports for CHHAs, LTHHCPs, LHCSAs, and Hospices.  The letter outlines the timeline the Division of Home and Community Based Services will active the statistical reports for these three years for the four groups.
