Value of Public Documents

Data & Research

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 of any facility on our site.  You can also access the public documents of assisted living facilities by submitting a California Public Records Act Request to your local CCL Regional Office, or you can now view some public records online at Licensed Care/Start Facility Search, then enter the name of the facility you are interested in.  

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.
