(1) In addition to any other requirements of this chapter, the residential care or assisted living facility shall provide a procedure approved by the licensing agency for immediate response to incidents and complaints. This procedure shall include a method of assuring that the administrator or designee has personally investigated the matter, and that the person making the complaint or reporting the incident has received a response of action taken or a reason why no action needs to be taken. In the case of anonymous complaints, the administrator or designee shall document the action taken or a reason why no action needs to be taken.
(2) In order to assure the opportunity for complaints from the residents, the neighborhood, and the community to be made directly to the administrator or designee, each facility shall, within a reasonable period of time, meet with a complainant.
