Minnesota Nursing Home Capacity Requirements

According to Minnesota Administrative Rule 4658.0030 CAPACITY PRESCRIBED, each license must specify the maximum allowable number of residents to be cared for at any one time. No number of residents in excess of that number may reside in the nursing home. The maximum number of licensed beds is determined by the amount of space that is available in the facility as specified in chapter 4660.
