What is the Purpose of this Manual?In British Columbia, residential community care facilitiesmust be licensed under the Community Care and AssistedLiving Act (“the Act”). The Act requires that community carefacilities be operated in a manner that will maintain the spirit,dignity and individuality of the persons being cared for andthat will promote the health and safety of persons in care.The Act, which replaced the Community Care Facility Act onMay 14, 2004, empowers the government to makeregulations. It is recommended that all licensed adultresidential community care facilities have a program whichmonitors their nutrition and food services. This monitoringor audit program assists facilities in maintaining basic healthand safety standards. Refer to Appendix 1 (Resources) forinformation on how to obtain a copy of the Community Careand Assisted Living Act and associated regulations.The Auditing CycleIdentify reasonsfor uditan audit program that is consistent with the regulations. Tofacilitate understanding of the Legislation and as the basisfor the audit tools, resources in nutrition and food servicesthat reflect best practice are included.Residential community care facilities include thosedesignated for care of seniors, care of persons with mentalhealth concerns, and drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Thismanual is a resource to develop a nutrition and food servicesmonitoring/audit program in residential facilities having 25or more persons in care. The British Columbia Ministry ofHealth Services publication Meals and More, available onthe BC Government publications website(http://www.publications.gov.bc.ca), contains the nutritionand food service monitoring program for facilities with 24 orfewer people in care. Facilities may choose the programoutlined in these publications. Alternatively, they maychoose to develop their own monitoring tools or auditsprovided that they are acceptable to the medical healthofficer in their region.Regional licensing/community nutritionists and licensingofficers inspect and monitor licensed residential carefacilities to promote and protect the health, safety and wellbeing of persons cared for in these facilities. As part of theirreview, they will examine tools for self-monitoring such asthose provided in this manual.This manual is an update of the Audits and More manualpublished in 2001. Since the last edition, there have beenchanges in the Legislation as well as the referencestandards for diet planning including the Eating Well withCanada's Food Guide and the Dietary Reference Intakes.This manual reflects those changes. All of the audits havebeen reviewed and revised. In addition, four new audits orchecklists have been introduced: the Nutrition and FoodServices Policy and Procedures Checklist, the HydrationProgram Audit, the Dining Environment Audit, and the Auditof Excess Nutrient Intakes. Finally, this edition also includescontent related to emergency and sustainability planning.Throughout the manual the term audit will be used to refer totools for monitoring nutrition and food services.This manual is intended for use by interdisciplinary teamsworking in adult residential community care facilitiesincluding, but not limited to, the Registered Dietitian (RD),supervisor of food services/nutrition manager, RegisteredNurse and other facility staff. It provides backgroundinformation on how to interpret and meet the provincialstandards, and tools to assist facility staff in implementing1

A nutrition and food service audit program assists facilitiesin maintaining basic health and safety standards as set outin the Regulations. An effective and valid audit program willdocument acceptable and unacceptable audit results aswell as the actions taken to correct any concerns identified.What Does an Audit Score Mean?The audits in this manual measure the basic systems thatare in place for nutrition and food services. By conductingaudits such as these, you demonstrate that the care andwell-being of those who live in the facility is a priority.What if an Audit is ConsistentlyAcceptable?The specific systems measured in the various audits includethose for nutrition care planning, menu planning, foodpreparation and service, satisfaction and accountability.The items examined in each of the audits are based upon theLegislation and best practice standards relevant to thenutrition and food services system measured. Examinationof the items in each audit helps ensure the quality of theservices provided. If the audit score is 100%, this meansthat the performance of the particular system measuredmeets the standards as determined by the Legislation andis in line best practice standards.By keeping an ongoing file of the audits you may noticetrends. If scores consistently meet the acceptable level, youmay be confident that your level of care is meeting theLegislation. If this is the case, you may want to raise thestandard for that audit since you have demonstrated thatyou can consistently achieve a higher score. The audit toolsare available in electronic format so you can adapt them andbroaden your assessment criteria (refer to “Audit Tools ToAccompany the Audits and More Manual” on the BCgovernment publications website at:http://www.publications.gov.bc.caWhat if an Audit is Unacceptable?It is important to realize that an audit score that is less thanthe standard does not mean your nutrition and food serviceoperation does not meet the requirements of theRegulations. Rather it is in indication that something withinthe system is not working as well as it could be, and thataction is needed to have the nutrition and food servicesprogram operate at the optimum standard. If an audit resultis unacceptable, the underlying reasons must bedetermined by reviewing the overall system includingpolicies and procedures, tools for care, staff training andeducation and consultation with staff members. Whenassessing problems, be sure to identify their cause, ratherthan recording signs observed. Based on the informationgathered, corrective action should be documented andimplemented for each specific problem identified. After adefined period, the audit should be repeated to evaluate theeffectiveness of the corrective actions. Follow-up mayindicate that another approach to resolving the problem maybe necessary.You may also want to consider doing the optional auditsavailable in this manual.What Tools are there to FacilitateCompliance with the Regulations?All licensed adult residential community care facilities areexpected to comply with all requirements of the CommunityCare and Assisted Living Act and its associated regulations.These standards are intended to promote consistency ofservices throughout the province. Contact your locallicensing office if you would like to discuss theserequirements with your regional licensing staff.
