Adult Day Service


The Department inspects the adult day service prior to and following licensure to determine compliance with 175 NAC 5-006 – Standards of Operations, Care and Treatment and 5-007 – Physical Plant Standards. The adult day service may not operate without an active license issued by the Department.
Inspection requirements are at 175 NAC 5-005.

Initial Licensure Inspections:
An onsite inspection is scheduled with the applicant after the Department has received a complete initial licensure application as required at 175 NAC 5-003.01A and 5-003.01B, and a written notification from the applicant with the date the applicant will be ready for the inspection. Unless the applicant requests a later date, the Department has 30 working days to conduct this initial onsite inspection after a complete application is received by the Department.
Prior to submitting an initial licensure application or requesting the initial onsite licensure inspection, the applicant should be ready to operate, but not operating. The ADS Administrator and back-up Administrator, who meet the requirements at 175 NAC 5-006.02, must be prepared to demonstrate during the Department’s onsite inspection how the ADS will comply with the requirements at 175 NAC 5-006 and 5-007. Compliance is demonstrated through the use of ADS-specific organizational charts, job descriptions, policies, procedures, forms, and similar items along with a physical inspection of the ADS prior to the applicant being issued a license by the Department.
Compliance Inspections:
Following initial licensure, the Department may conduct unannounced onsite inspections at any time the Department deems necessary to determine compliance with 175 NAC 5-006.
Inspection Results: See 175 NAC 5-005.05.
