PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Administration and Support Program is to oversee, administer and support the Patient Care Program which directly provides a residential living option and other supports and services to individuals with developmental disabilities.

In order to receive Title XIX funding, the Developmental Center must meet eight Conditions of Participation. These conditions are as follows: (1) Active Treatment, (2) Physical Environment, (3) Client Protection, (4) Facility Staffing, (5) Health Care Services, (6) Dietary, (7) Client Behavior, and (8) Governing Body. Taken as a whole the Conditions simply indicate that a facility may or may not participate in the Title XIX program. However, with 389 standards making up these conditions, quality in service provision is defined. The standards are comprehensive in nature and compliance is critical to the provision of good quality programmatic services.

The goal of the Administration and Support Program is to provide efficient and effective administrative and support services to the programmatic services of the Metropolitan Developmental Center.

The Administration and Support Program is a program within Metropolitan Developmental Center whose purpose is to oversee, administer and support the Patient Care Program.
