  Message from Director

I hope to find everyone enjoying the wonderful weather! 
I think spring has finally arrived.
The conference committee traveled out to Pierre May 5th & 6th to meet and walk through the venue at the Ramkota.  After meeting with the event planner and looking at the Ramkota venue the committee decided the Ramkota was not going to work for our conference this year. 
We did find a great venue at the newly built Drifters Event Center.

 Drifters Event Center
325 Hustan Ave.
Ft Pierre, SD
We are very excited about this venue!!!  Drifters opens June of this year and we will be one of their first conference events in their new center.  I am so excited to say we have found a wonderful place to have the 19th Annual ALASD Fall conference! Please watch for the upcoming newsletter for more information on this year’s conference!  Hope to see everyone in Pierre this year!  
We will be celebrating 20 years of service to our Assisted Living facilities in SD.

SD Department of Health has recommendations for completing your online Assisted Living Center license application.

·         Section II.D.10 is a new section for Secured/Memory units. Please review carefully as we have approximately ten memory units in ALCs at this time. Just because you are licensed for cognitive impairment does not necessarily mean you have a secured unit.

·         Section III.B. Governing Body provide only the President, VP, Secretary, and Treasurer, their respective address, and their board position. The phone number is only required for the President of the GB.

·         Section III.C. Staffing, the required fields are for a licensed nurse, UAP supervisor,  pharmacist, RD (If you provide therapeutic diets), and the certified dietary manager(CDM)/person-in-charge of kitchen. For the CDM/person-in-charge of kitchen please use either the CDM certificate number or the individual’s ServSafe certificate number and expiration date. Instances where the licensed nurse and the UAP supervisor are the same individual use a second drop down box to enter the required field for licensed nurse AND UAP supervisor. Ensure you have the current license information for the licensed nurse, pharmacist, and dietitian. Remember all RD’s licenses expire 6/30/16. If you submit your license after 6/30/17 you will need to have your RD’s current license on file for 6/30/17. All pharmacist’s licenses expire 9/30/16.

·         Do not provide any personal information such as addresses for the licensed nurse, pharmacist, RD or CDM/person-in-charge of kitchen other than license number or certificate number. That information is only required for the Governing Body (section B) or the Board of Directors (section F) if those directors are different from section B (Governing Body).

As always if there are questions you will receive an email or a phone call. Please don’t hesitate to call Todd at 773-4952 or Deb at 394-1991.
