Semi-Final Draft Assisted Living Residence Rules

ScalesOfJustice.pngThe Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment’s (CDPHE) Assisted Living Advisory Committee (ALAC) met on Nov.3 and worked on a semi-final draft of the assisted living residence (ALR) rules. The draft includes several changes for ALRs, including minimum standards for administrators, requirements for CPR, first aid and lift assistance, implementation of the Facility Guideline Institute (FGI) standards for new construction and renovations, and revisions to the secure environment section. The controversial Limited Nursing Services section was not included. The draft also includes a significant, phased-in increase in licensure fees to fund the department’s survey and enforcement activities.
