Subpart 1.

Multidisciplinary assessment.

The license holder must assess each person entering the treatment program within ten days after admission to determine the person's need for medical care, nursing services, psychological services, social services, chemical dependency treatment, education and vocational training, and recreation and leisure activities. After the initial assessment, the license holder must update assessments on all persons at least annually.

Subp. 2.

Psychiatric evaluation.

A psychiatrist must evaluate each person within three working days after the person is admitted and reevaluate each person at least annually.

Subp. 3.

Follow-up to psychiatric evaluation.

Specific mental health interventions indicated in addition to the usual sex offender treatment program must be prescribed and monitored by a psychiatrist. These interventions must be integrated into the treatment plan.

Subp. 4.

Individual treatment planning.

Within 14 days after a person is admitted, a multidisciplinary team led by the program director or program director's designee must develop and begin implementing a written treatment plan for the person. Based on the assessments and evaluation in subparts 1 and 2, the plan must identify the person's needs; determine the phase of treatment where it is most appropriate for the person to begin treatment; establish goals; assign staffing responsibility; and provide for at least quarterly review. At a minimum, the team must include the person, a psychologist, a social worker, a nurse, and a member of the treatment support staff. When psychiatric or medical treatment is required, a physician must also be included on the team.

The case manager assigned by the county responsible for providing the person's social services must be notified of and given the opportunity to participate in all team meetings. Treatment staff who provide services identified in the treatment plan must also receive notice of team meetings and be given the opportunity to participate.
