ALF Regulation Comprehensive Revision
Action 1677
General Information
Action Summary The purpose of the proposed action is to make revisions to the assisted living facility licensing requirements to provide necessary increased protection for the health, safety and welfare of aged, infirm or disabled persons who reside in such facilities. Because of the probable extent of the changes to the regulation in both content and format, it is proposed that the current regulation, 22 VAC 40-71-10 et seq., be repealed and a new regulation, 22 VAC 40-72-10 et seq., be adopted. The proposed action to adopt a new regulation would include a comprehensive examination of the current regulation and revisions based on implementation experience, changes in populations served in the facilities, legislative mandates, revisions to related regulations, current practices and research findings. The proposed action would also include technical amendments and clarifications.
