Residential Care Facility Laws & Rules

Product # M1006

Every five years the Ohio Department of Health conducts a review of Ohio's assisted living, or residential care facility (RCF), licensure rules. As a service to our assisted living members, OHCA has compiled the "Residential Care Facility Licensure Rules and Statutes" effective March 1, 2018. The Rules and Statutes can be downloaded at no cost to our members by logging into or they can be purchased in a 3-hole punched format that can be easily placed in a binder (binder not provided).
