dc.description.abstractThe objectives of this paper are Determine how DDSN protects consumers from abuse, neglect, or exploitation. Examine the reporting process of abuse/neglect/exploitation to SLED, as required by state law, how SLED vets and delegates reports to other investigative entities, and how the investigative entities handle DDSN reports to final disposition. Determine if DDSN complies with state law regarding eligibility determinations for DDSN services and determine what role the Center for Disability Resources (CDR) plays in the eligibility process. Determine if procurements made by DDSN in the past three years were in compliance with the state procurement code and agency certifications. Determine if there is an issue with DDSN employees having criminal records, either before employment or while employed, and determine to what extent DDSN terminates employees because of abuse/neglect of consumers. Determine the implementation status of the 63 recommendations made in the 2008 LAC audit with specific emphasis on recommendations relating to abuse, neglect, and exploitation, such as those regarding background and reference checks, drug testing, and training of DDSN employees. Ascertain whether DDSN is submitting accurate and true diagnoses and recommendations to the courts for involuntary commitment hearings of adults and juveniles diagnosed with mental retardation to DDSN facilities. Determine the feasibility of consolidating regional centers.
