17Kim “Berly” Forsythe From the Desk of Human Resources… Policy and Procedures overviewKim “Berly” Forsythe
18Direct Support Professionals Where do I fit in?Direct Support ProfessionalsResidentialOffice TeamNatural HomesSupervisory staffThe DCS/PCA positions are vital to the organization as the central core of the organization. Your position ties all other services that we provide together to form a large, cohesive unit. Goals and skills that are worked on specifically with the client will affect the families. Changes in behaviors will affect the supervisory staff as they work to set new goals, advocate for continued or additional services and train new or current staff. More services or a change in behaviors (both positive and negative) could lead to growth of the agency as clients transition to an ISL living environment. All documentation including timesheets, daily progress notes (DPNS), CERFs, mileage logs, etc. are in turn processed by the office staff to ensure payment, ongoing services, proper documentation of services, etc.
19Funding Sources How they effect YOU Berly - Each of our Client’s services are funding by someone. Here we will discuss the different funding sources and how they affect our Direct Support Staff.It is the funding source that must ensure that each individual is receiving the services for which the Agency is being reimbursed. It is important to remember that all client specific data that is taken is a legal document. This will be covered more thoroughly in Behavior Managements 1-4.Mo First Steps – First Steps is Missouri's Early Intervention system that provides services to families with children, birth to three years of age, with disabilities or developmental delays. The program is designed to meet the needs of families related to enhancing their child's development, learning, and participation in family and community life.Private Insurance – Can fund BIS Services for individuals with an Autism Diagnosis under the age of 19. All carriers and plans differ.Department of Mental Health – DMH (the State or Regional Center) can fund services for individuals who’s disability originated before their 23rd birthday. All of our ISL consumers are recipients of services from DMH.Private Pay – Funding is not always readily available for those that needs it and it is not always at the level that a family might desire. We always offer the option of paying privately for services.
20New Hire Probationary Period Every employee’s first 90 days is considered a probationary period during which at any time BIS can retract it’s original offer of employment.Part-time employees will be scheduled between hours per week on average.Full-time employees must meet comply with all requirements to set a full time start date.Employees may at times be asked to work over the 29 hour per week part time maximum but that does not make them full-time staff. You must submit your intent to move to a full-time position in order to start the process of moving to a full-time position if you were not hired in at full time.It is important for us as an agency and you as a new PCA to make the decision as to whether or not this position is a good fit for you. This is a challenging position that is not right for everyone! Therefore, it is important that you keep a few things in mind as you begin your new position:Am I capable of meeting and exceeding the job responsibilities and requirements?Do I have the necessary equipment (working car, cell phone, access) required for the position?Is this something that I want to do long term (full time) or for experience (part time)?Am I able to separate my personal life from my work life and do I have a good support system in place to help me keep my stress levels from everything (work, school, personal, etc) manageable?If you are having trouble with anything during your employment with the agency, please talk to your supervisor or HR. The minimum work responsibilities for part time staff are 10 hours per week. The Staffing Coordinators and FCA’s will work with you as best they can to offer shifts, clients and hours that work with your schedule, personality and locations of interest, however, we might not be able to find that “perfect” client for you.It is also important to recognize that you must allow yourself to be “uncomfortable” in a new situation and to give yourself time to acclimate to this position. Over 80% of the individuals that have worked for our agency said that the best advice they could give to a new employee would be to patient, stick with it and give the job/client/position a chance. Don’t throw in the towel when it gets too tough. You could miss out on a great experience!

Employees interested in moving to a full time cannot have recent disciplinary action in their file and must be an employee in good standing. If the above stipulations are met, that employee must meet with the HR Director to review full time paperwork, vacation accrual forms and will need to see Debby Schaefer if they are interested in any health benefits. Employees moving to a full time position will again enter a 90-day probationary period. FT employees have 30 days to decide on any benefits but if they decline insurance coverage upon promotion, they must wait until the open enrollment dates for insurance (typically June each calendar year)Full time hourly employees do not receive paid holidays as a benefit but may receive holiday pay for the following holidays.
25Steps to move to a full-time position: Full-time positions are offered based on merit, performance and agency need. If there is a need for additional full-time staff, employees may apply for a position by following these steps (in the order listed):Submit a letter of intent to move to full time stating why you would be a good candidate for full time.Have a current BIS supervisor write a letter of recommendation for you, supporting your request for full timeSecure a work schedule that is conducive to maintaining a minimum work week of 37 hours. Schedule a meeting time with HR to set a full time start date, discuss and sign up for any full-time benefits, sign a change in status form and discuss any additional questions at that time. (This will be scheduled after the first 3 items have been completed).
26Failure to maintain a minimum of 37 hours for each ongoing work week will result in the following: Immediate demotion to a part-time statusDecrease in pay rateLimitation on hours to no more than 29 per weekLoss of all accrued PTO timeLoss of all benefits (if applicable) after last paid through dateInability to seek a full-time position for a minimum of six months

It is not appropriate to discuss personal matters such as finances, family problems, difficult personal relationships or agency grievances, etc.. Leave your personal issues at the door and remember the reason you are there, betterment of the client. Please also refrain from making inappropriate or derogatory comments about the client even following rough sessions. Try to focus on the positive points. Its acceptable to say that a session was challenging but not acceptable to blame that on a client or attach labels to them.Smoking –employees are required to stop one hour prior to working with a client and may not smoke at any time while billing time with a clientDress Code – is casual but no cropped shirts, ripped jeans, profanity, alcohol or tobacco advertisements. Refrain from open toed shoes. In the event that you are in violation of the dress code policy, the staff may be asked to leave their shift without pay and may only return when in proper attire. Remember that you are representing BIS.Cell Phone Use – is prohibited while working with a client. This includes all phone function (texting, internet, ect.) especially if you are driving. Please place supervisor, team members and family contact information in your phone in case of emergencies.Drug and Alcohol Use – is prohibited during work hours, if you are suspected of this you must submit to testing before returning to work and may be subject to immediate terminationConfidentiality – Reiterate what HIPAA is and that all client information is to be held in strict confidence only being discussed with the BT and applicable team members (I give an example of a rough “day at the office” and how they can share their frustrations with a loved one without violating confidentiality! Any issues concerning the client and their family needs to be kept to themselves unless there are concerns in regard to the client or a family members welfare.Respect – all clients, their family members and other employees will be treated with respect and professionalism at all times but cannot expect that our clients will repay the favor! When you are with a client, be the person that you wish you could be all the time. You are a role model for behavior, manners, language and demeanor at all times.Line of Sight/Arms Length – there are a number of clients who have written in their Behavior Plan the fact that they must remain within Line of Sight or Arms Reach of their staff. Please make sure that you are aware which level your particular client must have maintained. Ensure that you are following this guideline whenever you are with your client.Sexual Harassment- we support a zero tolerance sexual harassment policy. Complaints should be filed with your immediate supervisor or Human ResourcesRate of Pay – is to be held in strict confidence at all times and may not be discussed with any employee outside of the Human Resources officeMed Administration – if an employee is not Med Aid certified they may not at any time handle or administer a clients meds. Do not administer meds to any client without consulting your BTClient’s Siblings – no PCA or DCS may at any time take responsibility for a client’s sibling or any other individual. If they do so they will be held liable for any damages incurred. This also included having responsibility for your own children and your client at the same time.Name Badge – when working with a client outside of their home or ISL an employee must wear a BIS name badge which will be provided to them after orientationClient Transportation - you must have a valid class E drivers license and insurance card on file in order to transport any BIS client. All clients must be in the back seat with child locks engaged. Both you and your client must wear your seatbelt at all times. If your client takes off their seatbelt you will need to pull over as soon as possible and will not proceed until their seatbelt is secured. Please speak with your BT about client specific transportation procedures. IF you are found to have been using your cell phone at the time of an accident or you were not wearing your seat belt, agency liability would not cover you. We do not transport clients if they are in an agitated state. If you client becomes agitated during transport, you will pull over and not proceed until they become stable. Please call you supervisor if you are unsure about your clients current state, but always ere on the side of caution.No Texting or Talking on your Cell Phone While Driving – This is a major violation of Policy and Procedure. Please do not ever text or talk on your cell phone while transporting a client.

35Attendance and Punctuality Policy Call in/shift coverage Call In/Shift Coverage ProceduresTo maintain a safe and productive work environment, BIS expects employees to be reliable and to be punctual in reporting for scheduled work. Absenteeism and tardiness place a burden on other employees and on BIS and will not be tolerated.In the rare instances when employees cannot avoid being late to work or are unable to work as scheduled, they should notify their supervisor as soon as possible in advance of the anticipated tardiness or absence and their start time should reflect the late start time as discussed in the Time Keeping and Mileage Log policy (401).Changes to the scheduled start and/or end time of any publish schedule must be submitted to the Staffing Coordinator of that client within 24 hours of the changes so that it may be reflected in the employee's published schedule.Unreported and undocumented changes to a published schedule will result in disciplinary action. Failure to follow the agency's call off/shift coverage policies will subject the employee to disciplinary action.Employees that call off to a scheduled shift during the hours of Friday at 3pm to Monday at 8am will receive a first and final disciplinary action (DAF).Employees that call off to a second shift during the hours of Friday at 3pm to Monday at 8am during a six month period will be terminated.Employees that have three call offs of any nature during a six-month period (unless excused by a physician's note) will be terminated.Employees that are late to three scheduled shifts in a 6 month period will receive a first and final disciplinary action (DAF).

47What’s Wrong with this Report?! Please find your Report Worksheet! At 5:50pm I prompted SP that she needed to take one bite of food in the next five minutes or she would not have her snack tonight. I prompted SP every minute explaining how many minutes she had left to take one bite. SP refused to take any bites. After the five minutes were over I explained to SP that we would sit at the table until it was time to take her bath and go to bed. SP continued to sit and look. SP began to rest her head on her hand as if she was going to sleep. At 7:00pm, her room mate began to eat her dinner, Subway. SP began pointing to her roommate's plate saying she was hungry. I gave SP her meds and prompted her to eat her food. SP responded by scratching staff, ripping her shirt and punching her body. She was prompted to have nice hands. At 7:15 SP threw her spoon at roommate and was removed to her bedroom where she sat with nice hands. At 7:30, SP chose her clothes for the next day, her night clothes and began her bath routine. She required help washing her hair and verbal prompts to wash her body. SP independently dressed herself, brushed her teeth and went to bed at 8:30pm. Overall SP had an okay day with the exception of several target behaviors and refusals.

This process allows the individual to access supports that will allow him/her to achieve personally defined outcomes and the training, supports, therapies, treatments, and other services to become part of the plan.All consumer’s within the ISL will have an ISP. Each staff member is required to receive ISP training (and BSP training if applicable) before working their first shift with any consumerIt is important to remember that the Individualized Support Plan is the document that drives all that we do with our consumers.ALL STAFF MUST FOLLOW THE ISP AT ALL TIMES

55Paperwork in ISLWe are going to touch on a few of the aspects of daily paperwork. There may be more or less depending on the consumers you work with. You will learn more about client-specific paperwork during your training shift with the Lead Staff. It seems like a lot at first, but once you get used to it, it’s a breeze!
56Daily Progress Notes (DPN) DPNs track the progress of consumers toward their ISP goals and Missouri Quality OutcomesThese DPNs must have your accurate time in/time out, date, printed name, signatureDPNs must be fully filled out—do not leave anything blank!

58Behavior Data SheetsBehavior Data Sheets collect information that is needed for Behavior Therapy. Not all ISL consumers have Behavior Data Sheets separate from DPNs, but they are just as important! These sheets help you and the Behavior Therapist track the behavioral progress that the consumer is making and help justify their need for services.
59sleep (times that the consumer is sleeping), Intake, Sleep, and BM LogsThese logs are very simple to complete, but it is important to keep track of Intake (what the consumer eats/drinks),sleep (times that the consumer is sleeping),and BM (times that the consumer has a Bowel Movement) to maintain communication in the house and to monitor the consumer’s health.These Medical Data sheets must be completed every shiftIf any consumer has not had a BM in 3 days you MUST notify the QDDP immediatelySome consumers require their blood pressure, weight, fluid intake, or temperature to be recorded everyday, these are important medical records that must be kept up with accurately to ensure the quality of our consumer’s health
