IDAHO RESIDENTIAL CARE OR ASSISTED LIVING ACT
39-3340. Licensing. (1) Any person, firm, partnership, association, governmental unit, or corporation within the state proposing to operate, establish, manage, conduct, or maintain a residential care or assisted living facility in the state shall have a license issued by the licensing agency of the department. A license is not transferable. The owner of the license has ultimate responsibility for the operation of the facility.
(2) Each residential care or assisted living facility in the state requires an administrator, properly licensed by the bureau of occupational licensing, who is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the facility.
(3) A license is not transferable from one (1) individual to another, from one (1) business entity to another, or from one (1) location to another. When a change of operator, ownership or location occurs, the facility shall be relicensed, and the operator shall follow the application procedures and obtain a license before commencing operation as a facility. When there is a significant change in an owner’s share of the facility that does not alter the overall ownership or operation of the business, that change shall be communicated to the licensing agency within sixty (60) days of the effective date of the change. When the owner contracts the operation to a facility management company, other than for temporary management, it shall be treated as a change of operator.
