If you want one typical and that I like call XXX-XXX-XXXX for "how to organize and Direct an Effective Resident Council" for a Technical Assistance Manual of the Missouri Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program"
I will be 89 next week and what I still have is time.
I am curious about a resident council here at this facility.
It has nothing to give direction as to its function or roberts rules or something in writing to give it direction.
I search other states and found some
I liked the one from
That Manual is typical and the best I know of and I have searched
This facility in Vineland NJ has a resident coucil with no writtten guidance. Other states do. Does NJ?
Does the state of NJ have any rules about resident councils. other states do and it is needed here
Does this reg say who will elect the officers of the council. Other states regs say that council itself will elect their officers. At this facility it is the residents at large will do this
I believe the council shall elect thew
ir own officers.
I believe the council shall elect their own officers.
It doesn't say who will elect the council officers ie: the coucil itself or the residents. I believe it is the council itself shall elect the officers among the council representatives.
I am not a lawyer but I read it differently
Thanks for your answer
