Homes will no longer be able to request a waiver of the State's minimum staff to resident ratio effective February 7, 2022. Additionally, homes that have approved waiver will have 3 weeks from February 7th to return to compliance with the minimum ratio.
As a reminder, a PSS, CNA, LPN and RN are all considered direct care providers. This will allow a PSS to work within a SNF/NF within their scope of practice. A PSS is a short-40 hour course and you can view the curriculum from the DHHS website at https://www.maine.gov/dhhs/dlc/cna-registry/crma-pss-training.
