Community Care Facilities Act   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Each residential community care facility shall state, on its client information form or admission agreement, and on its patient's rights form, the facility's policy concerning family visits and other communication with resident clients and shall, except as otherwise provided in this section, promptly post notice of its visiting policy at a location in the facility that is accessible to residents and families. The requirement that a facility post notice of the facility's visiting policy does not apply to any facility serving six or fewer clients.

The community care facility's policy concerning family visits and communication shall be designed to encourage regular family involvement with the resident client and shall provide ample opportunities for family participation in activities at the facility.

(Amended by Stats. 1987, Ch. 1022, Sec. 5.)
