Steps You Must Take for Licensing and Compliance in Nevada >>>
Step 1 - Review the Nevada Administrative Code (NAC) 449 - MEDICAL AND OTHER RELATED FACILITIES: https://www.leg.state.nv.us/NAC/NAC-449.html
Step 2 - Regardless of the type of facility, you must first go through the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health - Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance (HCQC) to apply for a new license, change of name, change of owner, change of administrator, change of location, change of suite number, change of endorsement/certification or increase/decrease/change of category of beds. To contact them please go to this website: http://dpbh.nv.gov/Reg/HealthFacilities/HealthFacilities_-_Home/ or call them at (775) 684-1030
Step 3 - Once HCQC has the documentation they require for license processing; their office will contact the Nevada State Fire Marshal Division (NSFM) to request a Fire/Life Safety Inspection and ultimately the issuance of a Certificate of Compliance (one of the requirements for licensing). The Certificate of Compliance office will then email the contact given from HCQC an invoice based on the facility's physical address zip code. The fee breakdown by zip code is listed on Health Care Inspection Request Fees. Once the invoice is paid, we will send the inspection request to our inspector. Upon a clear Fire/Life Safety Inspection by our inspector, we will issue the Certificate of Compliance to the contact email provided.
Note: Additionally if you are “new construction” or “remodeling” the facility, please
contact the Nevada State Fire Marshal Fire Protection Engineering Bureau for those requirements. You can reach them here: http://fire.nv.gov/bureaus/FPE/FPE_Main/ or call them at (775) 684-7510.
