I looked up the facility which my father is presently residing, and they were given one citation in 2016. How do I find out what the citation was for? Thanks.

One citation - a year ago - is a pretty good record. It's like getting an A-

In Illinois the survey results, complaints etc. are to be readily available for anyone to view. Ours are in our family lounge in a binder for whoever wants to see.

You have the right to ask the facility to show you the most recent survey. They are required to let you see it. Only one citation is phenomenal! Most places have several. And they MUST correct the deficiencies after the survey.

Check with your state licensing board. In California they have a website and you can sign up and they send you their reports. Ours is under the Dept of Social services

In my state, violations, fines, remedies, etc. are all online. If I google long term care facility violations, it comes up. There is one for Assisted Living and another one for Nursing Homes. I think it goes back several years. It's very detailed too. I was surprised that many of the violations are things that you wouldn't think about. Like, a broken fixture in the hallway, something sitting in the wrong place, paperwork errors, etc. I was shocked to read about a huge violation by one facility because a CNA picked up a food tray in the dining room! Apparently, you can't handle food, unless you are hired just for that duty. Of course, more serious violations are also listed.

Go to the Medicare website and look up the nursing home. You can see their reports and how they are rated. https://www.medicare.gov/nursinghomecompare/search.html

This should be public information through the Dept of Health or the facility. I worked in a facility and when they were cited, the staff were informed and then told about the actions that would be taken. The facility where I worked recently burned to the ground. Four residents didn't make it. You can be sure their recent inspections and citations are going to be closely scrutinized.

It is usually issued by the state department of public health. I would not worry too much about 1 citation because whatever was the cause resulted in either a disciplinary fine and a re education
