Cubicle curtains in resident rooms.

The nursing home must provide:
(1) Flame-retardant cubicle curtains in multibed rooms that ensures full visual privacy for each resident;
(2) In a new building or addition, the cubicle curtain or enclosed space ensures full visual privacy for each bed in a multibed room with enclosed space containing at least sixty-four square feet of floor area with a minimum dimension of seven feet. "Full visual privacy" in a multibed room prevents staff, visitors and other residents from seeing a resident in bed, while allowing staff, visitors, and other residents access to the toilet room, handwashing sink, exterior window, and the entrance door;
(3) For exceptions to cubicle curtain requirements refer to WAC 388-97-2180.
