(a) The services defined and delineated in § 42-66.4-2 shall be provided only to those patients who are medically eligible and who are in
a skilled nursing and/or intermediate care facility. Patients recently admitted shall be assessed as soon as possible. Provisions of long-term home health care services paid for by government funds shall
be based upon a comprehensive assessment that shall include, but not be limited to,
an evaluation of the medical, social and environmental needs of each applicant for
these services or programs. The assessment shall also serve as the basis for the development and provision of
an appropriate plan of care for the applicant. The assessment shall be completed by persons designated by the director, including,
but not limited to, the applicant's physician and a representative of the department
of elderly affairs.
(b) Continued provision of long-term home health care services paid for by government
funds shall be based upon a comprehensive assessment of the medical, social and environmental
needs of the recipient of the services. This assessment shall be performed at least every one hundred eighty (180) days
by the department of elderly affairs' case manager.
