Health Facilities Reports

Whether you work at a healthcare facility or would like to learn about the survey (inspection) history of a health facility for yourself or a loved one, the Health Facilities Division keeps a public record of facility surveys. You will be able to review the nature of the survey, number of regulatory violations for the survey (if any), any licensure actions taken, as well as read copies of the reports filed after the visit.

To access health facility reports, visit the Health Facilities Division online database and select “Entity Search” on the right side of the page. From there, you will be able to search by health facility name, type, or location to find recent reports. You can also export the list as a .csv or PDF file.

Note that for the best user experience, DIA recommends using the application in Chrome, Edge, or Safari browsers.
