Terms Used In New York Laws > Insurance > Article 53
- Appeal: A request made after a trial, asking another court (usually the court of appeals) to decide whether the trial was conducted properly. To make such a request is "to appeal" or "to take an appeal." One who appeals is called the appellant.
- assisted living residence: means an entity which provides or arranges for housing, on-site monitoring, and personal care services and/or home care services (either directly or indirectly), in a home-like setting to five or more adult residents unrelated to the assisted living provider. See N.Y. Public Health Law 4651*2
- Equitable: Pertaining to civil suits in "equity" rather than in "law." In English legal history, the courts of "law" could order the payment of damages and could afford no other remedy. See damages. A separate court of "equity" could order someone to do something or to cease to do something. See, e.g., injunction. In American jurisprudence, the federal courts have both legal and equitable power, but the distinction is still an important one. For example, a trial by jury is normally available in "law" cases but not in "equity" cases. Source: U.S. Courts

- operator: means a person, persons or an entity which has obtained the written approval of the department to operate an assisted living residence in accordance with this article. See N.Y. Public Health Law 4651*2
- Resident: means an adult not related to the provider, who, pursuant to a residency agreement with a provider resides in an assisted living or enhanced assisted living residence, as applicable. See N.Y. Public Health Law 4651*2
