  (b)  Name an individual to conduct the day-to-day operations of the facility subject to the supervision and direction of the receiver;

  (3)  May upgrade deficient facilities by any methods, procedures or actions he deems necessary; provided, however, that expenditures in excess of three thousand dollars, or in excess of any amount set by the court, be first approved by the court;

  (4)  Shall have the same rights to possession of the building in which the facility is located and of all goods and fixtures in the building at the time the petition for receivership is filed as the head of the facility would have had if the receiver had not been appointed.  The receiver shall take such action as is reasonably necessary to protect and conserve the assets or property of which the receiver takes possession, or the proceeds of any transfer thereof, and may use them only in the performance of the powers and duties set forth in this section and by order of the court;

  (5)  May use the building, fixtures, furnishings and any accompanying consumable goods in the provision of care and services to residents and to any other persons receiving services from the facility at the time the petition for receivership was filed.  The receiver shall collect payments for all goods and services provided to residents or others during the period of receivership, at the same rate of payment as was charged by the head of the facility at the time the petition for receivership was filed, unless a different rate is set by the court;

  (6)  May let contracts and hire agents and employees, including legal counsel, to carry out the powers and duties created under this section or by the court;

  (10)  Except as hereinafter specified in section 630.790, shall honor all leases, mortgages, secured transactions or other wholly or partially executory contracts entered into on behalf of the facility, but only to the extent of payments which become due or are for the use of the property during the period of the receivership;

  (11)  Shall be responsible, to the same extent as the licensee would have been, for taxes which accrue during the period of the receivership;

  (12)  Shall be entitled to and shall take possession of all property or assets of residents which are in possession of the head of the facility.  The receiver shall preserve all property, assets and records of residents of which the receiver takes possession and shall provide for the prompt transfer of the property, assets and records to the alternative placement of any transferred or discharged resident;

  (13)  Shall provide, if upgrading of the facility or correction of the deficiencies is not possible, for the orderly transfer of all residents in the facility to other suitable facilities, or make other provisions for their continued health, safety and welfare;

  (14)  Shall, if any resident is transferred or discharged, provide for:

  (a)  Transportation of the resident and the resident's belongings and medical records to the place to which the resident is being transferred or discharged;

  (b)  Aid in locating an alternative placement and in discharge planning;

  (c)  If the resident is being transferred, preparation for transfer to mitigate transfer trauma;

  (15)  Shall, if any resident is to be transferred, permit participation by the resident or the resident's guardian in the selection of the resident's alternative placement;
