(A) If a resident is transferred or discharged pursuant to section 3721.16 of the Revised Code, the home from which the resident is being transferred or discharged shall provide the resident with adequate preparation prior to the transfer or discharge to ensure a safe and orderly transfer or discharge from the home. The home or alternative setting to which the resident is to be transferred or discharged shall have accepted the resident for transfer or admission.

An individual who is absent from a home for more than the number of days specified in the notice and continues to require the services provided by the home shall be given priority for the first available bed in a semiprivate room.

(C) At the time of a transfer or discharge of a resident who is not a recipient of medicaid from a home to a hospital or for therapeutic leave, the home shall provide notice in writing to the resident, and in writing by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the resident's sponsor or legal representative, specifying the home's written policy regarding the resident's option to pay privately in order to hold a bed until the resident is able to return.
