Current Bill Summary


HCS/SS/SB 118 - This act modifies provisions relating to long-term care facilities.

Current law requires long-term care facilities to install and maintain an approved sprinkler system by December 31,2012. This act extends the 2012 implementation date requirement to 2014. (Section 198.074)

This act removes a reference to a current state regulation regarding administrative, personnel and resident care requirements for new and existing residential care facilities in the definition of "appropriately trained and qualified individual" as it relates long-term care facilities and instead provides that such appropriately trained and qualified individual shall have received facility orientation training as required by Chapter 198, RSMo. (Section 198.006).
