Proper Exit Process For Emergency Shelters

Posted on: Sep 04, 2014
By: Lani Ireland

When you are ready to discharge a client from an Emergency Shelter program, there is a very important step you need to review before you complete the Exit Workflow.

Verify that your client and their family members, if applicable, have been checked in for each night they stayed at your shelter.

The best way to confirm this is to go to Case Management and click on “Services.” This will list out each night that the client stayed with you (since they automatically receive an “Emergency Shelter Bed Night” service for each bed Check-In). You can then compare the nights listed for each client to your bed roster. You should switch to each person in the family to ensure each person received the expected services.

If any nights are missing, you can make note and then return to Bedlist/Resource Check-in, click on the action gear next to the appropriate bedlist, choose “✓ Check-In,” select the night they’re missing and check them in.

Once you can confirm that the client(s) have been checked in for each night they stayed at your shelter (which may be several consecutive nights, or some sporadic nights), you can then begin the Exit Workflow.

PLEASE NOTE: The second page of the Exit Enrollment (Emergency Shelter) Workflow, titled “Copy WF Member Reservation,” is where you END the Bedlist Enrollment.
