30:11A-3. Rules, regulations and standards
The State Department of Health shall adopt, promulgate and enforce such rules, regulations and standards with respect to the residential health care facilities to be approved hereunder as it may deem necessary to assure that: persons living in such facilities are afforded the opportunity to live with as much independence, autonomy and interaction with the surrounding community as they are capable of; such persons are afforded minimum standard of sanitation, housekeeping, heat, light, air, food, lodging, care, service and fire safety which also preserve and promote a homelike atmosphere appropriate to such facilities; such persons are not deprived of any constitutional, civil or legal right solely by reason of their living in such facilities; and that employees of public and private agencies have reasonable access to such facilities and other citizens have reasonable access upon receiving the consent of the resident to be visited by them; but nothing in this chapter nor any rule or regulation promulgated hereunder shall be construed to mean that any residential health care facility may advertise, hold itself out or operate as a nursing home. The department may determine that the various establishments covered by this act are appropriately and reasonably classified into two or more classes, and may establish separate rules, regulations and standards for each such class. Such rules, regulations and standards shall in any event include, but need not be limited to, all requirements and limitations legally imposed upon any such establishment by any other municipal, county, or State office or officer having inspection, approval, licensing or regulatory authority with respect to such establishment.
