Louisville Nursing Home Injury Attorney Tells All 

Nursing home regulations must adhere to the Kentucky Legislature’s outlined administrative laws. Any deviations from these laws, which fall under the Cabinet for Health and Family Services Department for Public Health Title 902, should be reported. In Louisville, a nursing home injury attorney can assist you in getting the help you need to correct violators and seek justice for any of their infractions. 

Specific Overseers for Nursing Home Regulations 

Under Title 902, nursing home regulations are divided under two cabinets. The Kentucky Cabinet for Human Resources provides licensure requirements for structural specifications for the alteration and maintenance of existing nursing home facilities; while the Cabinet for Health Services regulates health facilities and health services, including licensure requirements for existing nursing homes. 

These regulations provide nursing homes with operating rules, such as: 

  • qualifications of personnel (i.e., lines of authority for specific staff members, specific duty assignments);
  • staffing requirements (i.e., staff-to-patient ratio; supervision hierarchy)
  • nursing care;
  • pharmaceutical services;
  • therapists;
  • dietary administration;
  • physician care and services;
  • patient room capacity and requirements; and
  • other provisions. 


Any signs of nursing home abuse or negligence need to be taken seriously and reported.
