Violations and Resident Protection
In Florida, the state provides a list of updated and searchable licensed assisted living facilities online. In the same location they also provide information about violations, survey results, complaints and inspections. That information is also updated regularly and is searchable.
Additionally, Florida provides information about special care licensing, administrator contact information, capacity information and payment types. They do not, however, give the price of the facility on their site. Florida performs inspections every 24 months and does have the ability to fine facilities found to be non-compliant.
