A really important tip for all Long Term Care Executive Directors/Managers/Administrators:

For those managing LTC settings as it relates to High Intensity Needs Funding (HINF) by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, which assists in payment of Hughes staffing as supplementary staff. Note that the following HINF categories remained as claims-based categories. In addition, for these claims based categories as of January 1, 2013, the ministry pays 95% of the eligible expenditure and requires that LTC homes share the remaining 5% of the cost. This practice is to encourage better supply chain practices. LTC homes are expected to pay for the 5% share using funding from other ministry sources.

MOHLTC covers this funding to reduce risk in a LTC setting. “Significant Risk” is defined in this manual as:

  1. Exposure to noticeable and not miniscule possibility of injury occurring.
  2. Circumstances that are causing for the safety, welfare and/or well-being of the person are present to a significant extent.
  3. Significant risks that have a high level of probability of occurring.

However, under exceptional circumstances, an HINF claim may be submitted and funding may be provided for additional staffing costs for a resident who requires:

  • Short-term one-to-one care and supervision because that resident is at significant risk of harming themselves or others.
  • As a result of responsive behaviours and the resident falls within at least one of the following categories as per the High Intensity Needs Fun Manual, November 2015
  • Current residents with ongoing, emerging responsive behaviours where there is a significant risk of seriously harming themselves or others.
  • Newly admitted residents with ongoing or emerging responsive behaviours, who have a significant risk of seriously harming themselves or others.
  • Residents newly transferred from hospital or other facilities back to a LTC home with ongoing, emerging responsive behaviours, with a significant risk of seriously harming themselves or others.
  • Residents returning from a psychiatric leave of absence or Form 1 referral with ongoing responsive behaviours who require support as part of their reintegration back into the home and who exhibit a significant risk of seriously harming themselves or others.

“From day one, Hughes Intelligence has been focused and client-centered in their approach to our residence and the Rosewood team. Knowing that they are keeping us safe and just as important, freeing up time for our personal support workers and/or nurses to do the work that is needed in a less-stressed environment, is essential to avoid staff burnout. Every retirement home/long term care residence in the province would benefit from this program. Hughes Intelligence is an awesome service, they are extremely reliable. They have never let us down.”
