NEW YORK STATE Adult Care Facilities/Assisted Living Facilities CPR/AED & First AID Requirments: Adult Care Facility (ACF) regulation 487.9(a)(15), states “At least one individual currently qualified by a recognized organization to administer basic first aid shall be on duty and onsite at all times”. Facilities may wish to use a Registered Nurse (RN) or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to maintain compliance with this regulation. If so, it is necessary for the RN or LPN to have up-to-date documentation of First Aid Training. Please be advised that this guidance supersedes any previous guidance issued by the New York State Department of Health (Department), including the Department of Social Services (DSS) Memorandum, dated November 22, 1978. Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and First Aid Training is often a condition of employment.
In addition to having staff who are up-to-date in first aid training, it is also the facility’s responsibility to maintain up-to-date first aid posters displayed in the facility. This will also be verified during routine surveillance activities. Posters can be obtained via www.health.ny.gov/publications/0603.pdf.
