HHSC reminds Home and Community-based Services and Texas Home Living providers that they are responsible for following all laws, regulations, guidance and their own internal policies and procedures. Program providers should pay close attention to maintaining a healthy, safe environment that meets individuals’ needs, emergency preparedness, and ensuring appropriate monitoring and care for illness when providing nursing services. Program providers must also continue to ensure adequate staffing, provide required services, and promote and protect individuals’ rights.
