Customer Question
Adult Care Foster Home of...
Requesting second opinion. Renewal application to operate my Adult Care Foster Home of 16 years DENIED. Denial due to substantiated claims of incorrectly documenting medication administration records, not living at premises, hiring incompetent staff that has been with me 11 and 2years, incorrectly providing 1 to 1 supervision. I was giving technical assistant by the state and made corrections. Also, I had an unexpected kidney transplant, mother and aunt who were employed by me passed away unexpectedly. Recently had a pre hearing meeting and Adult Care Home manager adamant about Not renewing my license. However, Current household clients/parents do not want to move. They are willing to go to court and testify on my behalf. Information that came from meeting was, People do not like that I make a lot of money off vulnerable population, I am a great caregiver but not a good business/corporate person. Gentrification is occurring in my neighborhood but on my block alone there is 4 in businesses on the block. Before my attorney was confident and strategic and said we possibly can sue state on procedural issues. However after consulting with opposing attorney he brought me above news and lost hope. Please give straightforward and honest opinion. I can fax you any paperwork you need. Please help. Stephanie

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Quite honestly, the biggest issue here is the not documentation of medical records, this falls under neglect of the patients because there is no proof that they have received their proper medications and too many issues can occur from non-documentation such as selling medications on the street as well. This is not something that the Department takes lightly because those types of negligence issues by staff can also indicate a larger problem that even you may not be aware of.
The issue that likely changed your attorney's mind is the extent of the negligent documentation. Minor failure to document, incidental violations is one thing, but if it is continuous and widespread it make it much more unlikely your attorney can overcome that. Your best bet is at least seeking to get your attorney to try to argue for a probationary period to give you a chance to get rid of or properly train the staff and make changes to not disrupt the lives of your residents and the director may be more agreeable to that, but you have a tough case here for sure.
