§ 4210.25. Composition.
(a) Base service units shall consist of the professional and nonprofessional personnel required to carry out its functions and responsibilities. The composition of base service units shall be subject to the Departments review and approval. The nature and size of the staff shall be tailored to meet the individual needs of each catchment area and thus may vary even among catchment areas within the same county.
(b) Staff of the base service unit shall consist of, at a minimum, professionals qualified to make psychiatric, psychological, and social evaluations. Program staff shall, as far as possible, be recruited from sections of the community served in order to preclude subcultural barriers to effective communication and therapy.
(c) Responsibility for the medical treatment of patients shall be assumed by a physician member of the base service unit whose specialty is appropriate to the condition of the patient. The treatment plan shall be carried out by members of the base service unit working collaboratively, but each case shall be the immediate responsibility of one of the members of the base service unit.
