Attorney General’s Regulations on Long-Term Care Facilities

Attorney General Maura Healey has outlined legal protection for the comfort, health, and well-being of services provided by long-term care facilities.

The law ensures that care provided by long-term care facilities is consistent with legal standards and the Attorney General outlines regulations that protect those receiving long-term care. The regulations define unfair or deceptive acts and practices and discuss non-discriminatory access to long-term care, personal rights, medical treatment, and a resident’s personal funds, among other information.

See CMR 940 4.00 for a complete description of regulations and rights.
