The Board was formed on April 12, 1970 as a result of emergency legislation in response to congressional legislation 1908 A of the Social Security Act. The Board is comprised of four nursing home administrators, one consumer member, one member of the academic community, three members who work in long-term services and supports settings that are not nursing homes, with one of those members being a representative of a home health or hospice agency, one non-voting advisory member who is a designee of the Director of Health, and one non-voting advisory member who is a designee of the State Long-Term Care Ombudsman.
The Board of Executives of Long-Term Services and Supports develops and enforces standards for nursing home administrators; formulates appropriate examinations; and issues, revokes, and suspends licenses. The board investigates complaints; evaluates and approves continuing education courses to meet license renewal requirements; controls an ongoing trainee program for prospective nursing home administrators; and maintains a register of all licensed nursing home administrators and trainees.
