Topic: An ALF resident has a family member who arrives at the facility to visit their loved one later in the evening. The staff member that answers the door and can smell the alcohol on the visitor. The staff member is reluctant to let the visitor in, but their behavior appears to be well controlled, perhaps a little loud for the time of day, but otherwise appropriate. Per the facility’s policy, the staff member asks the visitor to wait in the lobby since their loved one’s roommate is already in bed. The ALF resident is informed that their loved one has arrived to visit them and is waiting in the lobby. A family conference room is available for their use if the resident would like to use that area for privacy. The resident did not really want their loved ones to visit this late at night, as they indicated to the staff member that it was late, and the staff member could see the resident’s hesitancy but indicated that they would go to the lobby. This resident is aware of their loved one’s problems with alcohol use and was concerned that if they did not go to the lobby that their loved one could become loud and belligerent with staff, while possibly waking other ALF residents. The resident made the decision to visit with their loved ones, and the staff followed all the facility’s policies appropriately. However, concerns over these visits by staff members for this specific ALF resident exist, as do concerns for their other residents, and for the staff, when these visits occur.
