SELF SUPERVISION EVALUATION AND WAIVER REQUEST
The purpose of this evaluation is to determine if a resident is functioning sufficiently independent of supervision and assistance by staff and can benefit from having opportunities to remain in a Community Based Residential Facility (CBRF), unsupervised for specified and limited periods of time. This evaluation is designed to provide a structured means of planning for a resident's movement toward greater independent functioning. Submission of this completed evaluation constitutes a request for a waiver of the staff coverage requirements specified in DHS 83.36(1)(b)2, Wisconsin Administrative Code, which states, "At least one qualified resident care staff member shall be present in the facility when one or more residents are in the facility." This waiver request must be in the best interest of the resident's development of skills for more independent functioning and not to accommodate staffing schedules. This evaluation is to be completed by the staff person(s) most familiar with the resident's functioning. It must be completed with the direct participation of the resident. Completion of this form is voluntary.
