CO Detection and Monitoring in Nursing Homes

I'm training to become a Fire Safety Inspector, for a State Agency, applying Life Safety Codes to Long-Term Care facilities. I cannot find in NFPA-101 or 99, the requirement for a Long-Term Care facility to have and maintain a Carbon Monoxide Detection System. My state requires CO Detectors in apartments, hotels, motels, and dorms, but not in a nursing home. Is NFPA updating or adding a requirement that will include CO Detection and monitoring in nursing homes?
