118.1. Every long-term care hospital centre, every reception centre and every establishment offering such service must institute a beneficiaries’ committee and provide financing standards for the operation of the committee.
Such committee shall consist of five members elected by the beneficiaries, two of whom may be voluntary members or, as the case may be, beneficiaries who are out-patients. However, no such persons may be employees of the establishment, members of the corporation maintaining the establishment or members of the board of directors of the establishment.
The committee shall make by-laws for its internal management and the election or replacement of its members.
