4:30 pm
one, kind of a small knit, but the budget summary page, there's a typo. it's the indirect costline on 18 says line 17 times line 18 i think it means line 17 times line 16. would that be correct? >>i think that's correct, yes. >>and the actual calculation is not 15%, it's something slightly less that that so i'm not sure why there would be -- it seems like a simple calculation, 15% of that -- >>perhaps it was a rounding. i don't have a calculator. >>it's about 14.7% across the budget, so maybe it's a rounding thing but it was an odd dollar amount when i made the cal cow cuelation. i'm not sure why there's a disparity, which always causes
4:31 pm
me a concern. not that i don't trust people but it seems like it should be accurate. >>okay, that's something i will follow up with the agency regarding. >>out of curiosity, it calls out in the outcome objectives 75% of all facilities will be visited on a quarterly basis, that would be two visits and same for the [inaudible] facilities. >>the baseline from the previous thing is that we require at least one visit to one board and care home every year so we've added this in as part of the increased performance as a result of the increased staff. now the plan is to in addition to seeing everyone at least once, each quarter, 75% of them
4:32 pm
will be seen. we didn't go with the 100 po allow for a little bit of leeway there. >>are the businesses announced and scheduled or unannounced. >>i believe both. in some situations the ombudsman will respond to a complaint brought by a family member or resident and appear unannounced. ombudsman will make an unannounced visit to see how things are going and to speak with residents to solicit their feedback on current conditions at the facility. >>thank you. commissioner -- >>other question. how many rezsidential homes are in the city of san francisco now? >>i believe there are 77 and that is down from 83. get our expert witness up here. is that right? >>there are presently 77 rcfes
4:33 pm
and that's down from 1986 figures which were 160 rcfes. we're experiencing in san francisco, we being everybody in san francisco, other agencies, a decrease in rcfes at a time particularly low income and moderate income so we have a real issue with maintaining existing stock and that was part of the plan i submitted originally to dos to try to develop an intervention where places just don't close, but they maintain a certain qualitative performance benefitting the residents. right now they're 77 but it's part of a trend of lowering numbers over the years. >> >>following on the 77, what's the range of the residents inthe homes? like five to 20 or what? >>larger cfes the people with
4:34 pm
means, so to speak, assisted living communities have anywhere from 100, 80. and there's a real dichotomy of the small six beds which are called board and care homes, and the larger residential fa stillties which are assisted living or part of the ccrc. so there's a lot of breakdown and stratification of pipe within that population of homes. and part of this proposal is also to address adult residential facilities as part of an -- to justify an augmentation because we're getting a lot of reports of neglect to the abuse mandate to the individuals who used to be below 60 but now many are ageing in place. complicated strategy we had to get to get this money. >>commissioner ow and then
4:35 pm
james. >>i don't think you identified yourself. >>i'm the program director of the ombudsman program and i've spoken here before that's why. >>are you -- >>program director. >>program director. >>correct. >>you came to our commission for many times an you oversee the san francisco nursing homes? >>we go to skilled nursing, both long term and the rehabilitation nursing facilities, some of which are actually included in the acute hospital buildings. i've come to the advisory group, i've i've come to legislative group over the years, yes. >>right now the agency going to get $148,000. will it include -- we listen to you for many times. you always [inaudible].
4:36 pm
>>it will improve or ability as measured in the number of unannounced visits to see what's really going on that might make vinls living in these places unhappy an dissatisfied and overall, if we can sustain this augmentation through capacity building and future years, it will certainly improve our oversight and hopefully improve some of the conditions affecting residents or patients and skilled nursing, both short term rehab as well as long term, as well as in residential care homes. right now i characterize this initial augmentation as getting more feet on the ground to increase the number of visits so
4:37 pm
our services can improve and also the individuals are experiencing can improve so they go hand in hand to speak. >>i got one more question. last year the state legislature have so many bills to includemprove the living facility for the seniors. >>that's an interesting point. the legislature had a whole series of residential carol reform act legislation. those that would have required that licensing agency community care licensing to increase their visits per year that had a fairly high expense attached to it and never got out of appropriations so therefore the expectation in some of those bills to increase regulatoryover sight were not really funded and so we're stuck with five year
4:38 pm
visit pattern with a sample because the funding never came through the legislature for those particular bills. those reform bills didn't cost any money, but not in terms of stepping up the regulatory visits. twenty years ago they use -- every facility used to be visited annually and now it's only a select sample of 20 or 30% in whatever area we're talking about and then the others only get visited once every five years. that was an argument to step up our visits because we're not the regulators. >>thank you very much and i appreciate the comments and the importance of the issue, but in
4:39 pm
the interest of time i would caution commissioners ask questions specifically relevant to the motion before us and specifically relevant to this contract. >>it is relevant. after you make a visit you make a report. if you don't think your report facilities is not up to par and then they do have violations, what is your remedies where do you go next step? >> >>i think i can speak to this one. the goal is to investigate and try to resolve the complaint at the facility, but in the event they do refer on to other appropriate bodies that have a sanctioning power such as licensing. >>commissioner james. >>in the interest of time move on. >>any questions or comments
4:40 pm

4:43 pm
asked to work with works out of florida. she's been providing good service and well want her expertise and she's got some local team members here but that's why it's so high. >>thank you. >>commissioner loo. >>i realize the [inaudible] in april of 2011 and it's almost halfway or so. are they on target of the contract at this point? >>good morning commissioners, director of contracts. we've been working with the dhs side since april and we have successfully integrated three of our service sites so now that we've got three of them up and running the fourth one would be the dos service hub. but yes, they've been very helpful in the process. it's a whole change of business process, the way we give out
4:44 pm
public benefits so it's been very beneficial especially in our medical division. because of the affordable care act we had 50 or 60,000 additional applications so by moving into this streamlined process we're actually providing quicker, more efficient service. we're hoping to continue this model with this dos hub. >>thank you. any other questions from the commission? comments and questions from the public. hearing none call the question all in favor. any opposed. thank you, the motion carries. c, requesting authorization to modify the grant with bay view hunters point multipurpose senior centers services for additional community service programs during the period of october 1 2014 through june 30 2016 in the additional amount of

4:46 pm
colleagues who helped us bring these grant awards forward. you may have noticed that we bun bundled services with the funding for projects that didn't fit into the traditional community services program funding model. we chose to create an umbrella term for ageing and disability friendly community. another distinction would be that it is much more neighborhood driven. it is in the community type approach than intends to help seniors thrive in their homes an neighborhoods. with that i will ask for your
