As previously reported, Florida regulators have published emergency rules requiring nursing homes and assisted living facilities (ALF) to obtain generators and fuel sufficient to keep their facilities at 80 degrees or less for at least 96 hours in the event of a power outage. Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration has now amended the emergency rule to include guidance for information that should be in a petition for variance. The Department of Elder Affairs has published a similar change. Requests for variances will be posted on the state agencies’ websites.

 

DISCLAIMER: Because of the generality of this update, the information provided herein may not be applicable in all situations and should not be acted upon without specific legal advice based on particular situations.
