What are Colorado rules on staffing at night for a small setting of 8 clients?

by Sharon

Question:

In Colorado does a staff need to be awake during the night at a small 8 client assisted living home?

If just available, what does that mean, a call button?

Answer:

It really can vary depending on the needs of the residents in the home. Many small homes do allow for the caregiver to sleep but they are always close by and on call.

Things like motion alarms are used on doors, floors, etc. that will go off as well as call buttons that can wake the caregiver.

You can refer to the state regulations and ombudsman as well for any specific requirements again depending on the residents needs.
