In what way does law governing nursing homes differ from other areas of law?

In fact, the Basic Law (the German constitution) does not define law governing nursing homes in any precise manner. The commentary on the constitution makes reference to the body of provisions contained in the Act on Nursing Homes, i.e. those areas of regulation which lawmakers included in the former Act on Nursing Homes are to be understood as law governing nursing homes. This is thus a kind of "reservoir" of provisions regulating the organisation of operation of nursing homes and their supervision by the authorities. These include, inter alia,

  • Regulatory law / special trade law / economic administrative law (the body of standards and provisions, on the licensing of an establishment, possibilities of intervention by the regulatory administration, etc.)
  • Special building law (requirements apply to room sizes, etc.)
  • Regulations relating to staffing requirements (requirement of a facility service / nursing service management, specialist staff quota, specialist staff presence obligations, etc.).
  • Employment law provisions (e.g. obligation to implement personnel development concepts)
  • Market regulation (e.g. option for binding needs planning)
  • Right of co-determination for residents (advisory councils)
  • Law governing administrative organisation
  • Procedural provisions (court action against orders without suspensive effect)
  • Publicity (posting of reports, publication on a district's website)
  • Law laying down specific administrative offences

In contrast, civil law, which used to be set out in the Act on Nursing Homes (Heimgesetz) and now falls under the Housing and Nursing Care Contracts Act (Wohn- und Betreuungsvertragsgesetz), must be clearly distinguished from this. Homes for children and juveniles are not covered by the law on nursing homes, either, and are instead addressed in the Social Code (Social Code Volume VIII).
