3 SURVEY SUMMARY North Florida Evaluation and Treatment Center (NFETC) has strengths in many areas. NFETC opened in 1976 as an evaluation and treatment center for people with mental illness who are involved in the criminal justice system. The residents are either incompetent to proceed to trial or have been judged to be not guilty by reason of insanity. The facility continues to provide quality treatment to individuals from all 67 counties in Florida. As a result of massive budget cuts from the state, NFETC has undergone many changes in the past 14 months including a merger with another facility, a change in leadership, and the loss of many positions. However, this organization demonstrates an amazingly strong determination to succeed. The current leadership brings many years of knowledge and experience and has created an environment of pride and strong commitment among the staff. Staff members indicated that there is now a climate of cohesiveness and they feel a sense of safety at the facility. One staff member described this as a culture of safety among staff and residents. Because the organization is constantly under the threat of being privatized, leadership regularly reviews how NFETC compares to other facilities in the state that provide the same type of services and is constantly striving to improve its statistics. The new leadership has been successful at achieving financial solvency in an environment that had suffered for some years. The CFO and her staff are motivated, meticulous, and creative in their approach to financial data collection, analysis, and reporting. The hospital administrator and the management and performance services director are dedicated, long-tenured individuals who provide visionary leadership to the organization. Both men, and their executive leadership team, are aware of trends and needs in the community and are positioning the organization to be the provider of choice for government and private agencies in Florida, while at the same time managing resources to not overwhelm the organization or the staff members. Staff members morale is obviously very high at NFETC, and enthusiasm for their jobs permeates throughout the organization. Staff members at NFETC take great pride in their work; as many staff related, they love what they do. Statistical planning is practiced on a daily basis at nearly every level of the organization. Poster boards that are updated frequently are located in the hallways of the administrative units. They indicate department organizational goals and the progress toward meeting those goals. Each department director interviewed ensured that these boards were reviewed by the CARF survey team. The pride in the progress toward meeting unit goals was obvious. NFETC demonstrates an extremely high focus on safety. The safety of residents, staff, and visitors is a priority. This is evidenced in the strategic plan, regular safety training for staff, a sophisticated security department, and a highly technical video surveillance system that can alert staff, leadership, and security of any incident within seconds. The videos obtained from incidents are sometimes used for safety training purposes. The safety and security directors ensure that every safety precaution is taken at all times and in every building, including Page 2

4 residential and administrative buildings and the grounds. The leadership and staff take a got your back covered approach with each other and with any resident that may be at risk of being hurt. This climate of safety has given staff members and residents a feeling of trust and security. The organization s infection control nurse has developed a comprehensive and aggressive infection control program and biohazardous medical waste collection system. The management and performance services director excels in data collection and analysis for performance measurement and management. He maintains comprehensive amounts of data and statistics that he skillfully and competently uses to guide the organization toward continuous quality improvement in the areas of business function and service delivery performance. He shares information openly and freely with all staff and stakeholders. He uses charts, bars graphs, and other graphs to capture vast amounts of information that provide the staff with information that is easy to read and understand and is needed to ensure that the organization is providing quality services, meeting legal requirements, and advocating for residents. He uses the information to ensure that the goals of the organization are being met and that the residents are receiving quality treatment. For the safety of the staff and residents, he constantly monitors information, such as the use of seclusion and restraint and number of bed days. NFETC has developed an excellent resident grievance procedure. A resident advocate has successfully earned the respect of residents by assuring and proving to them that the organization will listen to their concerns and make every effort possible to resolve those issues. Posters are displayed in the resident buildings with the telephone number for the state advocacy office and the number of the NFETC resident advocate. The residents generally choose to call the resident advocate first to express their concerns. An informal approach to resolving any issues or grievances is used. This method has proven to be successful and satisfactory to the residents and has resulted in the organization having few or no formal complaints filed with the state by any resident. The organization has an excellent and comprehensive training program. New employees are required to complete a multi-day orientation training program before beginning work. Both orientation and annual trainings are tracked. The organization has a sophisticated intranet system, and staff members can use this system to locate forms, policies, and other needed data. This system is used to share information with staff on a daily basis. The campus is on 55 beautiful acres, and the grounds are meticulously landscaped. The setting is open, colorful, and inviting. Staff members and residents alike appear to take pride in the surroundings. The campus includes an art facility complete with a kiln, library, recreation room, gymnasium, music room, barber shop, and canteen. Outdoor opportunities include a swimming pool, baseball field, and horticulture area with a garden. Nondenominational church services are held every Sunday for residents who want to attend. In addition, a dentist is on site weekdays to provide dental care, including false teeth or partial plates. The organization is recognized for its willingness to serve difficult residents that other organizations may be unwilling or unable to serve due to their acuity and behaviors. Although NFETC is a maximum security treatment facility, it is not a jail or prison. The residents receive a wide range of services provided by mental health technicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, and nurses. Services are provided by an interdisciplinary treatment team composed of a psychiatrist, psychologist, counselor, and nurse. Page 3

5 The organization s staff members are passionate, and they work hard to provide components that interlock and blend together to form a cohesive, consistent program designed to develop individuals to meet the challenges of life in a responsible, acceptable manner. Leadership is constantly looking for best-practice targeted process-of-care measures to track the effectiveness of the organization. Strategic goals include promoting a culture of universal safety using a trauma informed approach, promoting a culture of universal safety by continuing to reduce seclusion hours, systematically improve work processes to enhance efficiency and production through team management and staff education, and enhance efficiency and production through transparency. Services are designed to support recovery and stabilization, enhance the quality of life, reduce symptoms, restore and/or improve functioning, and support the integration of the persons served into their communities. The Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee members do an excellent job of tracking psychotherapeutics. The guidelines used provide assistance to the pharmacist, psychiatrists, and psychologists in the evaluation of medications for formularies and the development and implementation of strategies to manage medication use, which results in positive changes in the behaviors of the residents served. Through this focused team approach, the resident s health improves and those adjudicated Incompetent to Proceed (ITP) become competent more quickly. The team of psychiatrists, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and paraprofessionals are dedicated, passionate individuals who, despite the recent changes in the state of Florida, the loss of 20 percent of NFETC s staff several years ago, reorganization, and a decrease in funding, continue to provide excellent care. Staff members, regardless of their position, pitch in to help each other to provide safe, comprehensive care to the residents. Respect for each other and for the residents is evident. The residential facilities are highly structured and are monitored closely to meet the safety and service needs of the residents. Areas to be sustained, improved, or corrected are identified and reviewed during weekly facility meetings. Security is a high priority. More than two hundred cameras are used in and around the buildings and grounds. Safety measures include two fences with an alarm system when the fences are touched. The ratio of residents to staff members affords each resident to be escorted safely around the campus. Ratios are based on the resident s status. Services include counseling and 24-hour nursing coverage, including a comprehensive clinic with all physical and phlebotomy capabilities. The persons served expressed satisfaction with the services provided. They have confidence in seeking the assistance they need and feel that they can be open with staff members. They feel that the staff really cares about them. Although NFETC is a maximum security facility, some residents are reluctant to leave. Each of the thirteen NFETC buildings has weekly resident community meetings that are used to voice issues and concerns related to the home environment and/or the persons living in the home. In addition, there is one representative from each building that serves on the Resident Life Services Committee. Meetings are held monthly with all department heads to discuss and address a variety of issues including those brought forth by the resident representatives. In 2003, the state of Florida instituted an initiative to reduce and prevent the use of restraint and seclusion practices in mental health treatment facilities. NFETC began looking at the incidence of restraint and seclusion before the statewide initiative was instituted and began identifying Page 4

6 patterns and trends of use. The Mandt System was chosen for managing crisis behavior. Personal safety plans were redesigned in 2006 to capture the residents preferences during those occasions when behavioral support was needed. The use of bed restraints was eliminated at the center by Other statistics include a 96.5-percent reduction in seclusion hours since 2007 and 83-percent reduction in seclusion events since In addition, there have been no bed restraints in 62 months, a 33-percent reduction in manual restraint events since 2010, and a 51- percent reduction in assaults since Chart documentation is comprehensive in scope and provides important and insightful information regarding how the resident is faring. One noteworthy document is the Competency Evaluation Report to the Court, which is detailed and includes both broad and minute details about how the individual has progressed toward competency during the stay at NFETC. In the following area, NFETC demonstrates exemplary conformance to the standards. NFETC excels in the area of performance measurement and management. Massive amounts of data and statistics are collected and used to guide the organization toward continuous quality improvement in the areas of business function and service delivery performance. This information is shared openly and freely with all staff members and stakeholders. Charts, bar graphs, and other forms of visual data comparisons capture vast amounts of information and are used to provide staff members and stakeholders with information that is easy to read and understand. This information is used to ensure that the organization is providing quality services, meeting legal requirements, and meeting organizational goals; to monitor the safety of the staff and residents and the use of seclusion and restraint; to monitor the number of bed days; for daily monitoring of strategic goals, accessibility, and financial functioning; and for comparison to other providers in these areas. NFETC should seek improvement in the areas identified by the recommendations in the report. Consultation given does not indicate nonconformance to standards but is offered as a suggestion for further quality improvement. On balance, NFETC has made a commitment to conform to the CARF standards. The organization s strong leadership and executive team demonstrate an understanding of the standards and an enthusiasm to continue to improve the operations of the organization. The organization demonstrates exemplary performance in the area of performance measurement and management. The organization has strengths in many areas, but there are areas for improvement. Some of those areas include timely completion of all drills of written emergency procedures; the inclusion of the efficacy of medications in assessments; the inclusion of the code of conduct in the orientation of the residents; consistent use of the strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences (SNAP) of the residents in the written recovery plan; and the inclusion of protocols for persons with special needs in the written procedures for interventions. The organization s leadership and the dedicated and enthusiastic staff are encouraged to attend to the areas for improvement noted in this report. North Florida Evaluation and Treatment Center has earned a Three-Year Accreditation. The organization is complimented on this achievement and for its efforts in the pursuit of excellence. The organization is encouraged to continue to use the CARF standards to enhance the quality of care provided and business operations. Page 5

Proactive performance improvement Performance information shared with all stakeholders Page 12

14 SECTION 2. GENERAL PROGRAM STANDARDS For an organization to achieve quality services, the persons served are active participants in the planning, prioritization, implementation, and ongoing evaluation of the services offered. A commitment to quality and the involvement of the persons served span the entire time that the persons served are involved with the organization. The service planning process is individualized, establishing goals and objectives that incorporate the unique strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences of the persons served. The persons served have the opportunity to transition easily through a system of care. A. Program/Service Structure A fundamental responsibility of the organization is to provide a comprehensive program structure. The staffing is designed to maximize opportunities for the persons served to obtain and participate in the services provided. Written program plan Crisis intervention provided Medical consultation Services relevant to diversity Assistance with advocacy and support groups Team composition/duties Relevant education Clinical supervision Family participation encouraged A.8.e. It is recommended that the written program description include the identification of or a description of special populations and mechanisms to address their needs. Special populations might include aging or older adults, persons with intellectual or other developmental disorders, persons with HIV/AIDS, intravenous drug users, or sex offenders. A.18.d. It is recommended that the competency-based training of direct care staff include interviewing skills. Page 13

15 Consultation In light of the high number of co-occurring diagnoses among the residents, it is suggested that some additional integrated service approaches be included in some of the education groups. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA); Co-Occurring Center for Excellence; Motivational Interviewing, stage-wise intervention, pharmacological treatment and the Integrated Dual-Diagnosis Treatment (IDDT) model have examples of integrated service approaches. B. Screening and Access to Services The process of screening and assessment is designed to determine a person s eligibility for services and the organization s ability to provide those services. A person-centered assessment process helps to maximize opportunities for the persons served to gain access to the organization s programs and services. Each person served is actively involved in, and has a significant role in, the assessment process. Assessments are conducted in a manner that identifies the historical and current information of the person served as well as his or her strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences. Assessment data may be gathered through various means including face-to-face contact, telehealth, or written material; and from various sources including the person served, his or her family or significant others, or from external resources. Screening process described in policies and procedures Ineligibility for services Admission criteria Orientation information provided regarding rights, grievances, services, fees, etc. Waiting list Primary and ongoing assessments Reassessments B.9.d.(1)(d)(viii) The orientation of each resident should include standards of professional conduct related to services. B.14.i.(2) It is recommended that the assessment process consistently gather information about the efficacy of current or previously used medication. Page 14

16 Consultation Although the assessments are comprehensive in scope, it is suggested that, when an individual has experienced sexual abuse, additional information be documented. Several records indicate the resident answered in the affirmative to the question of sexual abuse; however, there were no additional questions regarding whether or not the individual had received or was interested in receiving counseling, nor were the issues addressed in the recovery plan. C. Person-Centered Plan Each person served is actively involved in and has a significant role in the person-centered planning process and determining the direction of his or her plan. The person-centered plan contains goals and objectives that incorporate the unique strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences of the person served, as well as identified challenges and potential solutions. The planning process is persondirected and person-centered. The person-centered plan may also be referred to as an individual service plan, treatment plan, or plan of care. In a family-centered program, the plan may be for the family and identified as a family-centered plan. Development of person-centered plan Co-occurring disabilities/disorders Person-centered plan goals and objectives Designated person coordinates services C.1.c.(1) C.1.c.(3) C.1.c.(4) It is recommended that the written recovery plan be consistently based upon the person s strengths, abilities, and preferences in addition to needs. C.2.a.(1) C.2.b.(3) The recovery plan should consistently include goals that are expressed in the words of the person served and be responsive to the person s disabilities/disorders or concerns. C.6.a. When the person served has concurrent disorders, disabilities, and/or comorbidities, it is recommended that the recovery plan consistently address these conditions in an integrated manner. Page 15

17 D. Transition/Discharge Transition, continuing care, or discharge planning assists the persons served to move from one level of care to another within the organization or to obtain services that are needed but are not available within the organization. The transition process is planned with the active participation of each person served. Transition may include planned discharge, placement on inactive status, movement to a different level of service or intensity of contact, or a re-entry program in a criminal justice system. The transition plan is a document developed with and for the person served and other interested participants to guide the person served in activities following transition/discharge to support the gains made during program participation. It is prepared with the active participation of person served when he or she moves to another level of care, after-care program, or community-based services. The transition plan is meant to be a plan that the person served uses to identify the support that is needed to prevent a recurrence of symptoms or reduction in functioning. It is expected that the person served receives a copy of the transition plan. A discharge summary is a clinical document written by the program personnel who are involved in the services provided to the person served and is completed when the person leaves the program (planned or unplanned). It is a document that is intended for the record of the person served and released, with appropriate authorization, to describe the course of services that the program provided and the response by the person served. Just as the assessment is critical to the success of treatment, the transition services are critical for the support of the individual s ongoing recovery or well-being. The organization proactively attempts to connect the persons served with the receiving service provider and contact the persons served after formal transition or discharge to gather needed information related to their post-discharge status. Discharge information is reviewed to determine the effectiveness of its services and whether additional services were needed. Transition planning may be included as part of the person-centered plan. The transition plan and/or discharge summary may be a combined document as long as it is clear whether the information relates to transition or pre-discharge planning or identifies the person s discharge or departure from the program. Referral or transition to other services Active participation of persons served Transition planning at earliest point Unplanned discharge referrals Plan addresses strengths, needs, abilities, preferences Follow-up for persons discharged for aggressiveness Page 16

18 E. Medication Use Medication use is the practice of handling, prescribing, dispensing, and/or administering medications to persons served in response to specific symptoms, behaviors, and conditions for which the use of medications is indicated and deemed efficacious. Medication use may include self administration, or be provided by personnel of the organization or under contract with a licensed individual. Medication use is directed toward maximizing the functioning of the persons served while reducing their specific symptoms and minimizing the impact of side effects. Medication use includes prescribed or sample medications, and may, when required as part of the treatment regimen, include over-the-counter or alternative medications provided to the person served. Alternative medications can include herbal or mineral supplements, vitamins, homeopathic remedies, hormone therapy, or culturally specific treatments. Medication control is identified as the process of physically controlling, transporting, storing, and disposing of medications, including those self administered by the person served. Self administration for adults is the application of a medication (whether by injection, inhalation, oral ingestion, or any other means) by the person served, to his/her body; and may include the organization storing the medication for the person served, or may include staff handing the bottle or blister-pak to the person served, instructing or verbally prompting the person served to take the medication, coaching the person served through the steps to ensure proper adherence, and closely observing the person served self-administering the medication. Self administration by children or adolescents in a residential setting must be directly supervised by personnel, and standards related to medication use applied. Dispensing is considered the practice of pharmacy; the process of preparing and delivering a prescribed medication (including samples) that has been packaged or re-packaged and labeled by a physician or pharmacist or other qualified professional licensed to dispense (for later oral ingestion, injection, inhalation, or other means of administration). Prescribing is evaluating, determining what agent is to be used by and giving direction to a person served (or family/legal guardian), in the preparation and administration of a remedy to be used in the treatment of disease. It includes a verbal or written order, by a qualified professional licensed to prescribe, that details what medication should be given to whom, in what formulation and dose, by what route, when, how frequently, and for what length of time. Page 17

19 Individual records of medication Physician review Policies and procedures for prescribing, dispensing, and administering medications Training regarding medications Policies and procedures for safe handling of medication E.5.e.(1) The organization should consistently implement written procedures that include the review of past medication use for effectiveness. E.6.e. The written procedures for medication should include continuing a prescribed medication if a generic medication is not available. Consultation It is suggested that the medication policies and procedures be expanded to include under what conditions medications may be held. For example, medications might be withheld for one or more days if the blood levels reveal toxicity. It is suggested that the medication policies include that medications requiring refrigeration will be kept in a refrigerator for medications, only, and that the temperature will be maintained between 36 and 46 degrees Fahrenheit. F. Nonviolent Practices Programs strive to be learning environments and to support persons served in the development of recovery, resiliency, and wellness. Relationships are central to supporting individuals in recovery and wellness. Programs are challenged to establish quality relationships as a foundation to supporting recovery and wellness. Providers need to be mindful of developing cultures that create healing, healthy and safe environments, and include the following: Engagement Partnership power with, not over Holistic approaches Page 18

20 Respect Hope Self-direction Programs need to recognize that individuals may require supports to fully benefit from their services. Staff are expected to access or provide those supports wanted and needed by the individual. Supports may include environmental supports, verbal prompts, written expectations, clarity of rules and expectations, or praise and encouragement. Even with supports, there are times when individuals may show signs of fear, anger, or pain, which may lead to aggression or agitation. Staff members are trained to recognize and respond to these signs through de-escalation, changes to the physical environmental, implementation of meaningful and engaging activities, redirection, active listening, etc. On the rare occasions when these interventions are not successful and there is imminent danger of serious harm, seclusion or restraint may be used to ensure safety. Seclusion and restraint are never considered treatment interventions; they are always considered actions of last resort. The use of seclusion and restraint must always be followed by a full review, as part of the process to eliminate the use of these in the future. The goal is to eliminate the use of seclusion and restraint in behavioral health, as the use of seclusion or restraint creates potential physical and psychological dangers to the persons subject to the interventions, to the staff members who administer them, or those who witness the practice. Each organization still utilizing seclusion or restraint should have the elimination thereof as an eventual goal. Restraint is the use of physical force or mechanical means to temporarily limit a person s freedom of movement; chemical restraint is the involuntary emergency administration of medication, in immediate response to a dangerous behavior. Restraints used as an assistive device for persons with physical or medical needs are not considered restraints for purposes of this section. Briefly holding a person served, without undue force, for the purpose of comforting him or her or to prevent self-injurious behavior or injury to self, or holding a person s hand or arm to safely guide him or her from one area to another, is not a restraint. Separating individuals threatening to harm one another, without implementing restraints, is not considered restraint. Seclusion refers to restriction of the person served to a segregated room with the person s freedom to leave physically restricted. Voluntary time out is not considered seclusion, even though the voluntary time out may occur in response to verbal direction; the person served is considered in seclusion if freedom to leave the segregated room is denied. Seclusion or restraint by trained and competent personnel is used only when other less restrictive measures have been found to be ineffective to protect the person served or others from injury or serious harm. Peer restraint is not considered an acceptable alternative to restraint by personnel. Seclusion or restraint is not used as a means of coercion, discipline, convenience, or retaliation. In a correctional setting, the use of seclusion or restraint for purposes of security is not considered seclusion or restraint under these standards. Security doors designed to prevent elopement or wandering are not considered seclusion or restraint. Security measures for forensic purposes, such Page 19
