NYSCAL Reminds Providers About NYSDOH DAL 15-12: Warm Weather Advisory

Shelley Sabo in NYSCAL Priority Alert

A reminder the NYS Department of Health issued DAL 15-12: Warm Weather Advisory in May.  During periods of warm temperatures you are expected to provide your residents with a comfortable and safe environment throughout the summer months and to take the necessary precautions to prevent heat related conditions. Section 461-q of Social Services Law requires the Department to set allowable temperatures for resident-occupied areas of the facility. Compliance with this regulation requires you to maintain your facility at a safe and comfortable temperature level.

You may view the DAL on the NYSCAL website, www.nyscal.org or via the Health Commerce System (HCS).  NYSCAL encourages all members to read the DAL in its entirety.  Please do not hesitate to call NYSCAL if you have any questions or need assistance.
