in assisted living facilities by educating consumers
and increasing industry accountability
The value of CARR's Facility Search is that you are able to read the evaluations state inspectors (LPAs) have written about the regulatory compliance demonstrated by any given facility. Of course, you can access much of the same information at the State Community Care Licensing Division (CCLD) office located in San Diego, but it will take you two trips: one to request the file, and the second, 3 to 5 days later, to actually review the file. CARR has saved you this trouble. You can access many of the same documents in the public file, on this website.
CARR has about 10,000 scans in its database: some are scans of documents directly from the public file, and others (LIC809F and LIC9099F) are excerpts of public documents captured as part of the original thesis work from which this website was derived. Two things to know:
The benefit of reviewing the public file is that consumers don't have to rely on a facility's assertion that the "food is delicious," or that they "have sufficient staff at all times". You can now conveniently read the state's evaluations (LIC 809s) and complaint reports (LIC 9099s) for yourself to evaluate whether those assertions, and others, are correct.
Most sites offering information on RCFEs only provide you with the data they've downloaded from CCLD's website, or solicited from the facilities themselves. CARR's information and documents come solely from source documents publicly available through CCLD, Superior Court, Police Records, Tax Records, Fire Marshal offices and California's Secretary of State's office.
CARR attempts to report only information in the public file. When the state’s public file includes the new or updated public documents containing the new or updated information, then CARR will update its document database accordingly at the time of CARR's next surveillance.
