OSBELTCA Regulations

A lot of our pages look like this with "topics" identified and when you click on that topic you find a little more explanation and within that explanation a link.  So, you can click on any of the topics below and see the topic open up and locate the additional link(s) there to find what you're looking for easier.  The little arrows on the right side are a hint that there's "more" underneath that topic.

They're "Unofficial" because we went to the offical sources and copied and pasted them into a single document... on the official sites, each paragraph has its own web page and it's just not conducive to reading the rules and statutes that way... 

The OSDH website would likely have created their own version of these unofficial rules and statutes (the words should be the same... the formatting may be different) and made them available through their own website... 

Oklahoma Statutes Citationized are found here.
Oklahoma Administrative Code (Rules...sometimes referred to as "Regulations") are found here on the Oklahoma Secretary of State website.  

LEARNING MOMENT:
Statutes typically have a title including the word "Act" (such as the Nursing Home Care Act).  Rules are numbered in the OAC (Oklahoma Administrative Code and both are LAW.  Both are approved by the legislature and Governor... how they're made and updated is the big difference... Statutes typically grant the authority to an Agency (such as OSBELTCA or OSDH) to promulgate the rules.
