Adult Care Home and Family Care Home Rules

Currently there are minimal or no rules governing the administrator certification and approval processes carried out by the Division of Health Service Regulation's Adult Care Licensure Section for Adult Care Homes and Family Care Homes. The Division of Health Service Regulation is seeking to define its processes to ensure consistency throughout the state and across Administrator In-Training programs, clarify the requirements for applicants, improve the readiness of administrators to serve in such capacity, and to protect the safety and welfare of residents. The language and requirements set forth in the proposed rules are consistent with current rules and regulations governing similar types of healthcare professionals who are licensed, certified, or credentialed in North Carolina. The proposed rules identify the processes for certifying and approving administrators, and specify the criteria for suspension and revocation of administrator certification or approval.
