If an owner or administrator will have direct contact with a patient, the owner or administrator must submit background information to the Division, in accordance with OAR 333-027-0064 (Criminal Records Check) for the purposes of conducting a criminal records check.
If any of the information delineated in the agency’s most recent application changes at a time other than the annual renewal date, the agency shall notify the Division in writing within 30 days.
A subunit must independently comply with all licensure requirements.
A branch office is part of the parent agency and therefore need not independently comply with these licensure requirements.
