General Information
Action Summary The regulatory action contains changes relating to licensure of administrators and registration of medication aides in order to coordinate the Board of Social Services assisted living facility regulation with regulations of the Board of Long-Term Care Administrators and the Board of Nursing at the Virginia Department of Health Professions. Administrator licensure and medication aide registration are a result of revisions to the Code of Virginia. Other changes contained in the regulatory action due to revisions of the Code include adding a requirement for reporting outbreaks of disease and deleting a standard regarding dedicated hospice facilities. The regulatory action also includes changes in the requirements for safeguarding resident funds, shared administrator for smaller homes, initial tuberculosis risk assessment report, bed hold policy information, individualized service plan update and review, administration of medication, fire safety inspection reports, and fire and emergency evacuation drill records. In addition, revisions were made to a few definitions of terms used in the regulations. Changes were also made to some regulations to improve clarity and readability and to make technical adjustments.
