A nursing home must not schedule a person to duty for more than one consecutive work period except in a documented emergency. For purposes of this chapter, a documented emergency means situations where replacement staff are not able to report to duty for the next shift due to adverse weather conditions, natural disasters, illness, strike, or other documented situations where normally scheduled staff are no longer available. For purposes of this chapter, a normal work period must not exceed 12 hours. For purposes of this chapter, documentation of an emergency means a written record of the emergency. Documentation on the work schedule is one method of providing written record of the emergency.
