Assembly Advances Bill To Make Long-Term Care Facility Inspections Publicly Available
The Assembly has passed a bill (SB 895) that would require the state Department of Social Services to make inspection reports for long-term care facilities publicly accessible on the agency's website by Jan. 1, 2020. The bill also would require such facilities to fix problems found during inspections within 10 days in most cases. The bill now returns to the Senate for final review.
