The DC Board of Nursing Home Administration regulates the practice of nursing home administration. The Board advises the Mayor and administers and enforces the law. The Board also evaluates applicants' qualifications and administers exams; recommends standards and procedures; issues licenses; receives and reviews complaints; and requests investigations, conducts hearings, and issues subpoenas.
The Board is appointed by the Mayor, with the advice and consent of the council. The Board consists of five DC residents, including a chair: two licensed nursing home administrators, one teacher of nursing home administration, one licensed physician or osteopath (who has a demonstrated interest in long term care), and one consumer. Professional members must have been engaged in practice for at least three years preceding appointment. The consumer member must be at least 18 years old, not be a health professional or in training to become one, and may have no household member who is involved directly or indirectly in providing health care. Licenses expire on June 30 of even years.
