(a) An ALR licensed pursuant to this chapter shall not use in its title the words “hospital,”
“sanitarium,” “nursing,” “convalescent,” “rehabilitive,” “sub acute,” or “hospice.”
(b) Only a licensed ALR may describe, market, and offer itself as such. No other entity,

shall constitute operation of an ALR without a license and shall be subject to penalties in
accordance with this chapter.
