Some Flexibility Seen in Florida Nursing Home Generator Order
October 27, 2017 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration posted a rule outlining steps that nursing homes that are facing circumstances beyond their control could take to receive a variance from the governor's September order that nursing homes have generators installed within 60 days, according to an article on The Capitolist website.
The agency said it still expects nursing homes to comply with Gov. Rick Scott’s order to have generators installed within 60 days, despite posting the notice.
“This does not repeal or modify the requirements of the Emergency Power Plan Rule,” the statement said.
The statement said the agency still expects most nursing homes to comply with the emergency order, but will grant waivers in certain circumstances.
