The Office of the State Auditor published a report on November 16, 2018 which found that during 2016 and 2017 many adult care homes were operating without a valid license or with a license issued before the licensing requirements were completed.

Moreover, the audit found that the Department of Health's Office of Health Care Assurance (OHCA) does not routinely make follow-up visits to care homes to correct deficiencies even after finding a problem such as mislabeled medication, wrong dosages given or discontinued medications without a physician's order.

The purpose of this Joint Senate-House Informational Briefing will be to allow the Department of Health to address the Auditor's findings and provide the Legislature with information on their response to address the deficiencies.
