In Interior Health, Designated Responders are required to start documenting an Adult Guardianship Investigation as soon as they receive a report or identify potential concerns of abuse, neglect or self-neglect.

Designated Responders are required to document in the medical record. Use of the Adult Guardianship Investigation/Outcome Report and the Adult Guardianship Progress Note must be used to ensure information is kept confidential in accordance with Section 46 of the Adult Guardianship Act

In addition to medical record documentation, Designated Responders are also required to update the PSLS Re:act Reporting System so that data related to vulnerable and incapable adult can be collected and reported. (Additional resources regarding the PSLS Re:act Reporting System are under development).  The PSLS Re:act Reporting System must be updated a minimum of three times during an investigation.  Once during the initial report, twice during the initial interview of the vulnerable adult, and finally when outcomes have been determined and the investigation will be closed.

A Designated Agency Framework and Policy is currently under development by Interior Health. The Designated Agency Policy will speak to the different roles and expectations for Interior Health staff.

These are policies pertaining to Northern Health.
