New Requirements for Indiana Skilled Nursing and Assisted Living Facilities

A new Indiana law effective July 1, 2019, requires additional written disclosures and care planning to prospective residents.

The law requires that health facilities provide a written disclosure to each prospective resident containing:

  1. Information concerning the Indiana Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program.
  2. Information on how to contact the Indiana Long-Term Care Ombudsman.
  3. Information on how to contact the Indiana State Department of Health.
  4. Any facility policy under which, regardless of whether the resident resides at the facility for the full month or for a partial month, the facility charges the resident the full monthly rate.

The new Indiana law also requires that, when developing and implementing a care plan for a resident, the health facility coordinate and facilitate the inclusion of at least one individual selected by the resident.

What Steps Should be Taken by Leadership?

All Indiana skilled nursing and licensed assisted living facilities should review and revise its admission agreements, supporting disclosure documents, and care planning policies.

If you have questions about this regulatory update or need assistance with revising your information please contact our post-acute care team today.
