An In-Depth Look at State Nursing Home Regulations

NH Regs Plus serves as a one-stop location to examine and compare the content of state regulations related to nursing homes. It contains federal nursing home regulations and nursing home regulations for all states and the District of Columbia.

NH Regs Plus also contains comparative analyses of more than 70 topics in nursing home regulation in narrative and tabular form. The narratives also contain occasional comments, signed as [NH Regs Plus Comment: , that call attention to issues that may be relevant in the movement toward greater individualization of resident care and transformation of nursing home services and environments to achieve better resident quality of life.
