The Legislature finds the following:
(a) The quality of care provided to persons with developmental disabilities by residential facilities is contingent upon a closely coordinated “team” effort by the regional center or its designee, the person with developmental disabilities, the parent or representative if appropriate, the residential facility administrator, and the licensing agency. The rights and responsibilities of each must be identified in order to assure clear direction and accountability for each.
(b) The quality of care is impaired when inordinate numbers of staff from placement and licensing agencies give direction to the facility administrator regarding care and service requirements.
