This manual is generic in nature, meaning that it is a basic document designed to meet most of the requirements for all states but probably does not meet all requirements of any single state.
At this time, Home Care accreditation, regulations and requirements fall within the auspices of the regulating body of each specific state, usually the Department of Health. If you haven't already done so, I suggest you contact your state’s regulating body about their non medical home care certification and licensing requirements. They should provide you with a list of what is required. Due to logistics, it is impossible for us to maintain 50+ different U.S manuals, which are individually tailored to satisfy each state’s criteria. Because manuals have also been sold to other countries including Canada, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa etc., there is no way we can keep all of them current with such a variation in regulations and requirements.
What we do provide is a basic working tool, which non medical home care businesses, regardless of which state they are established in, can use to develop more specific policies and procedures, which will meet their own state's requirements and/or their own wants and needs. This may mean some of our policies and procedures have to be tweaked to fit those required by the state and/or it could mean additional policies and procedures need to be written. Therefore, we advise Home Care Operators to compare our Table of Contents to the requirements that their state has to determine if the manual will be of help. If there is still some uncertainty, there is nothing to be lost by ordering it and reviewing it, since we offer a 30 day money back guarantee. Copies of this document have been sold to customers in all U.S. states and nobody (yet) has advised us that they were dissatisfied with its content. On the contrary, they have found it to be very helpful and many have advised us it saved them a "ton of work" Creating a Policy and Procedures document is very labor intensive and could take the better part of a year researching and writing.
