Maine Revised Statutes

§7931. Policy

It is the purpose of this chapter to develop a mechanism by which the concept of receivership can be utilized for the protection of residents in long-term care facilities, clients of home health care providers, general and specialty hospitals, critical access hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, hospice agencies and end-stage renal disease units. It is the intent of the Legislature that receivership be a remedy of last resort when all other methods of remedy have failed or when the implementation of other remedies would be futile.
