|(a) The facility must have written policies to govern
the nursing care and related medical or other services provided. The
written policies must include plans for promoting self-care and independence.
If children are admitted to the facility, written policies must address
the care of children, consistent with currently acceptable pediatric
practice and should address the ongoing assessment of the potential
for community reintegration.
(b) Resident care policies are developed by the medical
director and by professional personnel, including one or more physicians,
licensed or registered nurses, a registered pharmacist, and the licensed
nursing home administrator. The advisory group must review the policies
at least annually and update them as necessary.
