Member Resource: LeadingAge California Technical Briefs on Regulatory Issues

LeadingAge California has released a series of technical briefs for members, which can be accessed on the LeadingAge California website. This member-only benefit is intended to provide a way to navigate common regulatory requirements.

To date, we have posted ten technical briefs in the members-only section on the LeadingAge California website. The briefs include:

  • Guide to Changes: The Federal Requirements of Participation for Long-Term Care Facilities 
  • End of Life Options Act 
  • Skilled Nursing Facility/Nursing Facility Medicare Emergency Preparedness Rule
  • RCFE Absentee Notifications Plans/Elopement Policies and Procedures
  • Resident Representation on Nonprofit CCRC Board of Directors
  • SNF Transfer and Discharges Policy and Procedures
  • SB 219 Implementation Requirements: LGBT Long-Term Care Facility Resident Bill of Rights.
  • Certified Nursing Assistant Employment Requirements
  • Certified Nursing Assistant Recertification Requirements
  • Use of Referral Agencies in Multi-Level Communities (Federal Anti-Kickback States).

In addition to the technical briefs listed above, you can also find a LeadingAge California-produced skilled nursing facility compliance manual, as well as a guide to reporting elder abuse and neglect in all facility types.

All of these resources are free for members, excluding the Guide to Changes: The Federal Requirements of Participation for Long-Term Care Facilities, which can be purchased at a nominal price.

We strongly encourage all members to download these resources. You can access the Technical Briefs at
