Nursing Home Rules

Pursuant to G.S. 150B-21.3A, Periodic Review and Expiration of Existing Rules, all rules are reviewed at least every 10 years or they shall expire. As a result of the periodic review of subchapter 10A NCAC 13D, The Rules for the Licensing of Nursing Homes, six rules were determined as "Necessary With Substantive Public Interest," thus necessitating readoption. With input from stakeholders, substantial revisions have been made to Rule .2001 (Definitions) and Rule .3201 (Required Spaces) by updating these rules to contemporary standards and terminology. One of the several technical changes made in Rule .2210 was based on a comment received during the public comment period during the periodic review process. Revisions have been made to Rules .2303, .2402 and .2503 for the purpose of clarification of these rules.
