California Code of Regulations

Required LGBTQ+ Training for Skilled Nursing Facilities

Starting January 1, 2018 regulation 22 C.C.R. § 72517 Staff Development requires that each skilled nursing facility regulated by the California Department of Public Health provide bi-annual training on working with LGBTQ+ people.

Who is mandated to take the training?

All registered nurses, licensed vocational nurses, certified nurse assistants, and medical directors.

By when must facilities be in compliance?

August 1, 2018, and ongoing beyond that date.

How can we comply?

SAGECare’s “Creating Inclusive Communities for California’s LGBTQ+ Older Adults” satisfies the specific requirements of this regulation and is available as an on-demand video or can be uploaded to your facility’s learning management system, giving your staff the flexibility to complete the training individually or as a group.
