Basis for Involuntary Transfer

Upon compliance with these Transfer rules (OAR 411-088), an involuntary transfer of a resident may be made when one of the reasons specified in section (1) or section (2) of this rule exists.

(1) MEDICAL and WELFARE REASONS.

(a) A resident may be transferred when the resident's physician states in writing that:

(A) The resident's health has improved sufficiently so the resident no longer needs the services provided by the facility; or

(B) The facility is unable to meet the resident's care needs and the facility has identified another environment available to the resident which can better meet the resident's needs. The Division shall assist the facility in the effort.

(b) A resident may be transferred when the Division Administrator or the State Fire Marshal states in writing the safety of the resident (or other persons in the facility) is endangered and justifies the transfer;

(c) A resident may be transferred when the behavior of the resident creates a serious and immediate threat to the resident or to other residents or persons in the facility and all reasonable alternatives to transfer (consistent with the attending physician's orders) have been attempted and documented in the resident's medical record. Such alternatives may include but are not limited to chemical or physical restraints and medication;

(d) A resident may be transferred when the resident has a medical emergency;

(e) A resident may be transferred when governmental action results in the revoking or declining to renew a facility's certification or license;

(f) A resident may be transferred when the facility intends to terminate operation as a nursing facility, and:

(A) Certifies in writing to the Division the license is to be irrevocably terminated; and

(B) Establishes to the satisfaction of the Division it has made arrangements to accomplish all necessary transfers in a safe manner with adequate resident involvement and follow-up or each resident to minimize negative effects of the transfer;

(g) A resident may be transferred from a facility when the resident has been accepted for the purpose of receiving post-hospital extended care services or specialized services, as physician's orders for such facility services and has, according to the physician's written opinion, improved sufficiently so the resident no longer needs the post-hospital extended care services or specialized services provided by the facility. The purpose of the admission, including the program of care, and the expected length of stay must have been agreed to in writing by the resident (or his/her legal representative who is so authorized to make such an agreement) at or prior to admission. The facility shall identify another environment available to the resident which is appropriate to meet the resident's needs. The Notice may be issued at the time of admission or later and shall be based upon the projected course of treatment.

(2) NON-PAYMENT REASONS. A resident may be transferred when there is a non-payment of facility charges for the resident and payment for the stay is not available through Medicaid, Medicare or other third party reimbursement. A resident may not be transferred if, prior to actual transfer, delinquent charges are paid. A resident may not be transferred for delinquent charges if payment for current charges is available through Medicaid, Medicare or other third party reimbursement.

(3) CONVICTION OF A SEX CRIME. A resident who was admitted January 1, 2006 or later may be moved without advance notice if all of the following are met:

(a) The facility was not notified prior to admission that the resident is on probation, parole or post-prison supervision after being convicted of a sex crime, and

(b) The facility learns that the resident is on probation, parole or post-prison supervision after being convicted of a sex crime, and

(c) The resident presents a current risk of harm to another resident, staff or visitor in the facility, as evidenced by:

(A) Current or recent sexual inappropriateness, aggressive behavior of a sexual nature or verbal threats of a sexual nature; and

(B) Current communication from the State Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision, Department of Corrections or community corrections agency parole or probation officer that the individual's Static 99 score or other assessment indicates a probable sexual re-offense risk to others in the facility.

(d) Prior to the move, the facility must contact DHS Central Office by telephone and review the criteria in paragraphs (8)(c)(A)&(B) of this rule. DHS will respond within one working day of contact by the facility. The Department of Corrections parole or probation officer will be included in the review, if available. DHS will advise the facility if rule criteria for immediate move out are not met. DHS will assist in locating placement options.

(e) A written move-out notice must be completed on a Department approved form. The form must be filled out in its entirety and a copy of the notice delivered in person, to the resident, or the resident's legal representative, if applicable. Where a person lacks capacity and there is no legal representative, a copy of the notice to move-out must be immediately faxed to the State Long Term Care Ombudsman.

(f) Prior to the move, the facility must orally review the notice and right to object with the resident or legal representative and determine if a hearing is requested. A request for hearing does not delay the involuntary move-out. The facility will immediately telephone DHS Central Office when a hearing is requested. The hearing will be held within five business days of the resident's move. No informal conference will be held prior to the hearing.

Considerations Required Prior to Involuntary Transfer

Prior to issuing a notice for an involuntary transfer, in order to determine the appropriateness of transfer, the facility shall consider the following:

(1) The availability of alternatives to transfer.

(2) The resident's ties to family and community.

(3) The relationships the resident has developed with other residents and facility staff.

(4) The duration of the resident's stay at the facility.

(5) The medical needs of the resident and the availability of medical services.

(6) The age of the resident and degree of physical and cognitive impairment.

(7) The availability of a receiving facility that would accept the resident and provide service consistent with the resident's need for care.

(8) The consistency of the receiving facility's services with the activities and routine with which the resident is familiar, and the receiving facility's ability to provide the resident with similar access to personal items significant to the resident and enjoyed by the resident at the transferring facility.

(9) The probability that the transfer would result in improved or worsened mental, physical, or social functioning, or in reduced dependency of the resident.

(10) The type and amount of preparation for the move, including but not limited to:

(a) Solicitation of the resident's friends and/or family in preparing the resident for the move;

(b) Visitation by the resident to (prior to actual transfer) or familiarity of the resident with the place to which the resident is to be transferred.

(11) On-site consultation by an individual with specific expertise in mental health services if the basis for considering transfer is behavioral, e.g., gero-psychiatric consultation.

Involuntary Transfer Prohibited

(1) The facility shall not involuntarily transfer a resident for medical or welfare reasons under OAR 411-088-0020(1)(a) through (f) if the risk of physical or emotional trauma significantly outweighs the risk to the resident and/or to other residents if no transfer were to occur.

(2) The facility shall not involuntarily transfer a resident for any other reasons under OAR 411-088-0020 if the transfer presents a substantial risk of morbidity or mortality to the resident.

Right to Return from Hospital

(1) If a resident is transferred to a hospital, the facility shall not fill the resident's bed with another person if the resident or the resident's legal representative offers payment, or reimbursement is available from the Division, for the period of the hospital stay. If payment/reimbursement is offered or available, from or on behalf of the resident or the Division or a combination thereof, or if the facility has not complied in full with section (2) of this rule, the resident shall have the right of return to his/her bed immediately after the period of hospital stay.

(2) The Administrator, or his/her designee, is responsible for notifying the resident/legal representative and any agency responsible for the welfare or support of the resident of the option to offer payment to hold the bed prior to filling the bed with another person. This notification shall be documented in the resident's record by either the resident's or legal representative's written agreement to pay or rejection of the option to pay.

(3) If the resident is unable due to physical or mental incapacity to enter such agreement and there is no legal representative known to the facility, this fact shall be documented in the resident's record and the resident's bed may thereafter be filled upon issuance of the notice (Exhibit 2).

(4) If the resident's bed has been given to another person because payment was not offered, the resident shall have priority for readmission over all other persons with a right to readmission and over any other waiting list.

(5) If a former resident or his/her legal representative requests right of return and the facility denies right of return, then the facility shall give written notice (Exhibit 2).

(6) Persons with right of return have priority over all persons with right of readmission.

(7) Residents with a right of return are entitled to return to the facility immediately upon discharge from the hospital unless the resident's bed has been filled in compliance with OAR 411-088-0050 and there is no available bed in the facility.

(c) No determination was made at informal conference or hearing that the person would not have the right of readmission.

(2) Section (1) of this rule does not require a facility to accept a person in a bed located in a room which is occupied by a resident of the opposite sex at the time of the request.

EXCEPTION: A facility is required to accept a person to a room occupied by a resident of the opposite sex if the respective resident previously shared a room in the facility and if neither resident objects to the admission.

(3) Section (1) of this rule does not require a facility to accept a person who voluntarily transferred from the facility directly to another nursing facility.

(4) If a person, or his/her legal representative, request readmission, and the facility denies readmission, then the facility shall give written notice (Exhibit 2).

(6) If more than one person has a right of readmission, priority in allocation of vacancies shall be determined by the earliest date of application for readmission.

Informal Conference and Hearing

(1) Conference and Hearing Required. A person who is to be involuntarily transferred, or refused the right of return or readmission, shall be entitled to an informal conference and hearing as provided in this rule.

(2) Conference Request:

(a) Upon receipt of a notice, the resident or any agency designated to receive the notice or person acting in the resident's or former resident's behalf, may request an informal conference on the form provided on the brochure, "Leaving the Nursing Facility":

(A) The request for informal conference must be mailed to the Division within ten days of the service or delivery of the notice. The Division shall immediately notify the licensee of the request;

(B) The Division may extend the time allowed for requesting an informal conference if it determines that good cause exists for failure to make a timely request;

(C) Any facility management personnel, or employee involved in providing nursing or other direct care, who receives any oral or written indication of a desire for an informal conference from a resident shall immediately notify the facility administrator. The administrator shall immediately thereupon provide notification to the Division.

(b) A resident may not be transferred after having requested an informal conference, or after facility staff or the licensee has knowledge of any indication of a desire for an informal conference, until:

(A) Disposition of the request has been completed to the satisfaction of all parties; or

(B) Authorization is provided by the Hearings Officer pursuant to this section.

(3) Informal Conference:

(a) The Division will hold an informal conference as promptly as reasonably possible, but in no event later than ten days (unless a later date is agreed upon by both the facility and the persons/agencies requesting the conference) after the request is received. The Division shall give telephone notice (where a telephone number is available) and send written notice of the time and place of the conference to the facility and all persons entitled to the notice. The purpose of the informal conference is to resolve the matter without a formal hearing. If a resolution is reached at the informal conference, it will be reduced to writing and no formal hearing will be held;

(b) The proceedings will be conducted at the facility where the resident is located unless an alternate site is agreed upon by both the licensee and the persons/agencies requesting the conference;

(c) At the end of the informal conference, if the licensee wishes to proceed with the transfer, the Division shall ask if any party representing the resident wishes to request a hearing.

(4) Hearing:

(a) Hearings shall be conducted as a contested case in accordance with the Administrative Procedures Act, ORS Chapter 183, and the rules of the Division adopted thereunder. Parties to the hearing shall be the resident (or former resident) and the licensee. The Hearings Officer is delegated the authority to issue the final order and shall do so;

(b) If, pursuant to section (3) of this rule, the Division receive (orally or in writing) a request for a hearing, the Division will set the date, time and place of the hearing as promptly as possible. Unless a later date is agreed upon by both the licensee and the person(s) requesting the hearing, the hearing shall be held no later than 30 days after the informal conference;

(c) Nothing herein shall be construed to prohibit, at the election of the Division and with the consent of all interested parties, a hearing immediately following the informal conference;

(d) The Division shall provide all persons and entities listed in OAR 411-088-0070(3) and the licensee with notification of the hearing. The hearing notification shall be served on the parties personally or by registered or certified mail;

(e) At the hearing the facility shall proceed first by presentation of evidence in support of the transfer of the resident, or of refusal to provide right of return or readmission of the former resident. The person or persons requesting the hearing shall follow the facility by presentation of evidence in support of their objection to the transfer, or of the request of right of return or readmission:

(A) In a hearing concerning right of readmission, the only questions raised shall be whether the application was timely, whether the former resident is eligible by means of payment, and whether another person was/is entitled to the bed;

(B) In a hearing concerning right of return, the only question raised shall be whether full payment is or was available for the period of hospital stay and whether there was authority under OAR 411-088-0050(2) for another person to be given the bed.

(f) The licensee shall have the burden of establishing that the transfer, or denial of return or readmission, is permitted by law;

(g) The Hearings Officer shall, in determining the appropriateness and timeliness of an involuntary transfer, or a refusal of return or readmission, consider factors including, but not limited to, the factors listed in OAR 411-088-0030. The Hearings Officer shall not approve a transfer:

(A) For medical or welfare reasons (under OAR 411-088-0020(1)(a) through (d) if the risks of physical or emotional trauma significantly outweighs the risk to the resident and/or to other residents if no transfer were to occur;

(B) For any other reason if the transfer presents a substantial risk of morbidity or mortality to the resident.

(h) Conclusion of Hearing. The hearing shall be concluded by the issuance of findings and an order:

(A) Affirming the transfer, of the refusal to provide right of return or readmission;

(B) Granting conditional approval of a transfer when necessary or appropriate for the welfare of the resident. Conditions may include without limitation the occurrence of any or all of the following incidents in preparation for a transfer:

(i) Selecting a location for the person to be placed consistent with his/her need for care and as consistent as possible with his/her ties, if any, with friends and family;

(ii) Soliciting and encouraging participation of the resident's friends and family in preparing the resident for transfer;

(iii) Visits by the resident to the proposed site of relocation prior to the actual transfer, accompanied by a person with whom the resident is familiar and comfortable, unless the resident is already familiar with the proposed site;

(iv) Arranging at the proposed site of relocation for continuation (as much as possible) of activities and routines with which the resident has become familiar;

(v) Ensuring that the resident is afforded continuity in the arrangement of an access to personal items significant to the resident.

(C) Ordering the licensee to retain the resident or to readmit the former resident if he or she has been transferred; or to provide the former resident with the right of return or readmission; or

(D) Ordering the licensee to retain the resident and establishing standards of behavior for family members or other visitors necessary for the welfare of residents;

(E) Making such further provisions as are reasonably necessary to give full force and effect to any order that a licensee retain or readmit the resident or provide the resident the right of return or readmission.
