Certificate of public need; nursing home beds.  Creates an exemption from the Request for Applications process for the relocation of nursing home beds from one facility to another if certain occupancy criteria are met, while removing an existing similar exemption from the definition of "project" for purposes of the certificate of public need process. Also, the bill allows for an extension of the one-time open admissions period in continuing care retirement communities, during which such communities can accept direct admissions to its nursing home beds, if the facility's occupancy rate for the year prior to the requested extension did not average 75 percent of its authorized nursing beds.
