What are Title 22 regulations and Health & Safety Codes?

Title 22 regulations refer to regulations contained in Title 22 of the California Code of Regulations.  These regulations implement the California Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly Act (Health and Safety Code section 1569 et seq.).  These are some of are the rules that RCFEs have to comply with when owning and operating an RCFE.  If a facility does not comply with a regulation, Community Care Licensing (CCL) can issue a citation to the facility. 

Health and Safety Codes (H&SC) are the California laws covering the subject areas of health and safety. It is in the Health & Safety Code where new statutes regarding residential care facilities for the elderly (aka assisted living) can be found.
