The Aging and People with Disabilities program has a website search tool to help consumers research long-term care provider licensing and compliance information.

This search tool makes it possible for consumers to search for care providers by location, type of setting (such as nursing facility, assisted living/residential care or adult foster home) and whether the facility accepts Medicaid or Medicare.  It also provides information about each facility’s licensing compliance history, including substantiated complaints and incidents of abuse, survey/inspection reports and the penalty amount assessed for violations. 

This should never be used as a single means of researching a facility or other care option. It’s also not the best place to start a search. We strongly encourage anyone who is considering a long-term care facility to start by visiting the Aging and Disability Resource Connection of Oregon website and participating in the options counseling process with the trained professionals in our service locations.  Once a consumer narrows down the list of facilities he or she is considering, the search tool is a good way to explore a provider’s compliance history.
