450.3.1 Alternate Design Models
Because nursing homes may provide care utilizing two basic organizational models, two alternate design models are permitted to meet some of the specific physical plant requirements of this section. These alternate design models, the institutional design model and the household design model for personcentered care, are described in Sections 4184.108.40.206 and 4220.127.116.11 of this code and are further defined by the physical plant requirements for each model as described in the applicable paragraphs of Section 450.3.
Either one or both of these design models may be used in the design of the nursing home as described by the functional program of the facility.
An institutional design model may utilize specific physical plant requirements of a household design model without being required to incorporate all of the household design elements.
