Nursing Facility Laws & Rules

Product # M1005

Every five years the Ohio Department of Health conducts a review of Ohio's nursing facility (SNF) licensure rules. During this process many issues impacting providers are addressed and regulations dealing with day-to-day operations, quality, workforce and environment are modified, deleted or added. As a service to our members the Ohio Health Care Association has compiled the "Ohio Nursing Home Licensure and Related Rules" and the "Ohio Nursing Home Licensure and Related Statutes" in a complete package for an easy to use reference. The Rules and Statutes can be downloaded at no cost by members by logging into under the Regulatory Resources tab with your username and password or they can be purchased in a 3-hole punched format that can be easily placed in a binder (binder not provided).
