Information

Intermediate Care Facilities in Nevada (incl. Distinct Part Long-Term Care/Skilled Nursing Facilities) must provide residents with menus. Menus must be planned and followed to meet the nutritional needs of the residents in accordance with the orders of a physician and, to the extent medically possible, in accordance with the recommended dietary allowances of the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies. Menus must be in writing, planned at least a week in advance, dated, posted and kept on file for 90 days. Any substitutions on a menu must be noted on the written menu so that the menu on file reflects what was actually served.
