Nebraska Adult Day Care Information
Nebraska defines adult day services as social activities, supervision, supportive services, meals, and in some situations, health services that are provided in a licensed setting for individuals who are 18 years or older (19 years or older in some situations) and need structured activities, support and supervision. The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Regulation and Licensure provides regulations to govern licensure of adult day services in the Nebraska Administrative Code (NAC), however they do not require separate licensure if a licensed health care facility provides adult day care services exclusively to individuals residing in that health care facility.
Nebraska Adult Day Care Minimum Standards
A variety of services shall be offered or made available to participants based on their assessed needs. If the adult day care provider cannot offer those services, then they can arrange appropriate services with individuals or community agencies. Such services include assistance with activities of daily living, transportation, health education, counseling, monitoring or other health-related services, nursing services, skilled nursing services, and social services.
Nebraska does not require licensed personnel to administer medications. Adult day care providers must ensure that medication aides and other unlicensed persons who provide medications are trained and have demonstrated the minimum competency standards specified in the relevant rules. The State of Nebraska doesn't have a staffing ratio, but each center must be staffed at all times by at least one full-time staff person who has received appropriate training. In addition, the center must maintain an appropriate ratio of direct care staff member to clients to ensure that client needs are met. A licensed nurse must be on staff, or contracted to provide necessary training, assessment and nursing services. Nebraska authorizes inspections of up to 25 percent of ADS providers based on a random selection of licensed providers. The state also conducts focused inspections in response to complaints and incidents or when five years have passed without an inspection.
