WAC 388-97-2060

New construction compliance.

The nursing home must ensure that:
(1) New construction, as defined in WAC 388-97-2160, complies with all the requirements of subchapter II of this chapter;
(2) New construction must maintain compliance with the regulations in effect at the time of initial submission to the department of health, certificate of need and construction review services; except if the previous construction jeopardizes resident health and safety, the department may require compliance with current construction rules;
(3) The department of health, certificate of need and construction review programs, are contacted for review and that the programs issue applicable determinations and approvals for all new construction; and
(4) Construction is completed in compliance with the final construction review services approved documents. Compliance with these standards and regulations does not relieve the nursing home of the need to comply with applicable state and local building and zoning codes.
(5) The department has done a pre-occupancy survey and has notified the nursing home that it may begin admitting residents.
