Facilities licensed by the state of Texas must comply with 40 TAC Chapter 90 which is based on Chapter 252 of the Texas Health and Safety Code (THSC).
Facilities that are not licensed by the state must meet specific federal requirements and three subchapters of 40 TAC Chapter 90:
- Subchapter C - Standards for Licensure;
- Subchapter D - General Requirements for Facility Construction; and
- Subchapter F - Inspections, Surveys, and Visits.
A licensing violation is a failure on the part of a state-licensed facility to meet these requirements.
