“Legislative findings and intent; long-term care facilities under the public health law”

The Florida legislature finds that there is a need for a formal mechanism where a long-term care facility resident, a resident’s representative, or any other concerned citizen may make a complaint against the facility or its employees. The State Long-Term Care Ombudsman must head the Office of State Long-Term Care Ombudsman. Voluntary citizen ombudsman councils, led by the ombudsman, are established to investigate the presence of conditions or individuals which constitute a treat to the rights, health, safety, or welfare of the residents of long-term care facilities.
