Assisted Living Licensure Language Now In 144G
On November 5, 2019 by Jodi Boyne
The Revisor’s Office has updated the 2019 Minnesota Statutes to reflect the changes made during the legislative session as a result of the 2019 Elder Care and Vulnerable Adult Protection Act. When the law was drafted, the intention was to create a new chapter which encompassed all of the Assisted Living regulations to be called 144I. Instead of creating a new chapter, the Revisor’s Office integrated that language into 144G, which has served to date as the Assisted Living Title Protection Act.
Under current law, the regulations in 144G.01 to144G.06 are Assisted Living Title Protections that still apply to you through Aug. 1, 2021 when the new Assisted Living Licensure takes effect.
There are exceptions in certain cases, including but not limited to the use of electronic monitoring and the prohibition on retaliation, which go into effect before Aug. 1, 2021.
If you are reading the 144G statute, please pay close attention to both the Notes and History sections as they clearly define when a particular provision goes into effect.
