(2) following any significant change in condition, as defined in K.A.R. 26-39-100;
(3) at least quarterly, if the resident receives assistance with eating from a paid nutrition assistant; and

(e) A licensed nurse shall participate in the development, review, and revision of the negotiated service agreement if the resident's functional capacity screening indicates the need for health care services.
(f) If a resident or the resident's legal representative refuses a service that the administrator or operator, the licensed nurse, the resident's medical care provider, or the case manager believes is necessary for the resident's health and safety, the negotiated service agreement shall include the following:
(1) The service or services refused;
(2) identification of any potential negative outcomes for the resident if the service or services are not provided;
(3) evidence of the provision of education to the resident or the resident's legal representative of the potential risk of any negative outcomes if the service or services are not provided; and
(4) an indication of acceptance by the resident or the resident's legal representative of the potential risk.
(g) The negotiated service agreement shall not include circumstances in which the lack of a service has the potential to affect the health and safety of other residents, facility staff, or the public.
(h) Each individual involved in the development of the negotiated service agreement shall sign the agreement. The administrator or operator shall ensure that a copy of the initial agreement and any subsequent revisions are provided to the resident or the resident's legal representative.
(i) Each administrator or operator shall ensure that each resident receives services according to the provisions of that resident's negotiated service agreement.
(j) If a resident's negotiated service agreement includes the use of outside resources, the designated facility staff shall perform the following:
