The Board of Health and Environmental Control, Division of Health Licensing regulates this community type. There must be one toilet for every 1 residents and one bath or shower for every 1 residents. In total, there can be no more than 3 residents to a room. This community has a number of provisions concerning food and diet which include three meals and snacks that meet dietary needs and special menus are provided for those with special dietary needs . Staff are required to obtain education in a number of subjects. These include: Confidentiality of resident information and records and review of the Bill of Rights for Long-Term Care communities., Basic first-aid, use of restraints , and management/care of persons with contagious and/or communicable disease.
