CRCF Inspections

Community Residential Care Facility (CRCF) Inspections

Advocating for an improved quality of life for residents 

DRSC conducts unannounced inspections of Community Residential Care Facilities (CRCFs) in South Carolina. This program was designed in response to repeated concerns about the quality of life for people in institutions and CRCFs.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • CRCFs are facilities that offer room and board and which provide a degree of personal care for a period of time in excess of 24 consecutive hours for two or more persons, 18 years old or older.  A list of all CRCF facilities is on the DHEC website.
  • CRCFs should be designed to accommodate residents’ changing needs and preferences, maximize residents’ dignity, autonomy, privacy, independence, and safety and encourage family and community involvement.  The requirements for operating a CRCF are found in SC Department of Health and Environmental Control Regulations 61-84.

  • DRSC staff and trained volunteer(s) travel together to conduct the unannounced inspection.
  • Using a survey tool, they inspect the facility for cleanliness, safety and quality of life issues. They conduct interviews of residents and review the residents’ records and medications. A meal is also observed. An exit interview with the administrator will occur before they leave the facility to note items of concern. If any serious concerns related to a resident’s immediate health are present, the appropriate authorities will be contacted within 24 hours.
  • The project is empowered by Section 43-33-350 (4) of the South Carolina Code to conduct surprise inspections of CRCFs in South Carolina. DRSC staff and trained volunteers have been conducting these surprise inspections since the project was approved by SC legislature in 1985.

A DRSC staff member prepares and sends a written report to the administrator which describes in detail a full account of the inspection. Residents’ names are not used to ensure confidentiality. This report is also sent to state agencies and other advocacy organizations that have an interest in improved quality of care in CRCF’s.
