GENERAL LICENSING REQUIREMENTS
Exemptions can be obtained on an individual basis under certain circumstances. However, the law does not allow transferring of exemptions between statutory acts. For example, exemptions granted to adult residential providers can be transferred to group homes and foster family homes (all in the Community Care Facilities Act) but cannot be transferred to family day care homes or centers (both in the Child Day Care Act).
Refer to Section 80019.
A guardian is also identified as a person who is exempt from licensure.
(i)(2) Inhalation-assistive device
Inhalation-assistive device does not include metered-dose aerosols and dry-powder inhalers. Due to public comment, metered-dose aerosols and dry-powder inhalers were removed from this definition during the October 1998 regulation package (ORD# 0696- 27). Refer to the California Code of Regulations Section 80075 regarding facility staff assisting clients with metered-dose inhalers and dry powder inhalers.
(n)(2) Nonambulatory Person
A deaf person who could respond to a visual signal may be ambulatory. However, when coupled with other factors such as dependence upon a mechanical aid, the person would be considered nonambulatory
