NEW BUSINESS

 

Jamie Simpson of Health and Welfare met with the Board regarding 54-4206 and 54-4211(1), Idaho Code.    Ms. Simpson explained that they are not being notified when the administrator changes and they are finding that in some cases the administrator is not on site the required 20 hours per week and the staff does not know the administrator. 

 

A discussion was held on possible changes to these sections. Two types of exposure should be a requirement for licensure: health care and management.  Changes to these section will be considered for the 2010 legislative session to reflect NAB requirements in section 54-4206(1) and to clarify the experience in 54-4206 (2) to change the experience in residential care facility or related health administration to residential care facility or related health administration to management or supervisory.  Related health would include, but not be limited to assisted, skilled, group home or other related health field.  James Stoll will review the NAB requirements and bring recommended changes to the board for review.  He will also add a subsection for applicants who hold a current Nursing Home Administrators license to Board rules, section 150.
