Title: Section 455.7 - Grounds

455.7 Grounds. This functional reporting center must contain all the expenses associated with the maintenance of grounds of the facility, including landscaped and paved areas, streets on the property, sidewalks, fenced areas and fencing, external recreation areas and parking facilities (e.g., lawn care, repairs and snow removal).

(a) Standard unit of measure: square feet serviced. Measurement should be of the outer dimensions of the residential health care facility property and should only include grounds which are maintained. Wooded grounds which are not maintained would not be included. When changes occur during the year as a result of purchase, sale or receipt of donated property, data should be maintained to allow for the development of weighted areas for the fractional part of the year.

(b) Data source. Square feet of grounds shall be determined from the deeds held by the residential health care facility or actual measurement. Square feet serviced should then be determined by the grounds department.
