OLC Distributes “LTC Update”

The Office of Licensure and Certification mailed nursing home license renewal reminder letters to providers last Friday and included a “LTC Update” with each letter.  The “Update” includes important information on license renewal, renovation or construction, as well as news and notes added to the current website.  Included in the newsletter is an announcement about a new guideline that will be distributed on resident transfer/discharge that serves as a guide through the maze of state and federal law and regulation and lays out the process for a successful transfer/discharge of a resident.  VHCA encourages members to take a few minutes to read the update for news from OLC.
