Oversight for Licensed Assisted Living Communities
Although most Holiday communities are independent living communities not licensed by the state, we do operate several licensed assisted living communities.
Q: Do all assisted living communities need a license to operate?
A: Yes. Before opening, assisted living communities must have a license from the proper state agency. Before issuing the license, the state conducts an on-site inspection and ensures the provider can meet the regulatory requirements. After the license is issued, the state conducts regular inspections to ensure continued compliance. See chart below for the different state agencies in which Holiday by Atria operates licensed communities.
Q: Do assisted living communities undergo inspections?
A: Yes. Inspections usually occur both annually and when someone files a complaint.
Deficiencies — sometimes called violations or citations — are noted during inspections. These deficiencies can provide insight into the quality of care provided at a community.
For each deficiency found during a survey, a provider must submit a plan of correction that includes a timeline explaining how they will respond to the issue. States can suspend or revoke a license and impose penalties for failure to comply with state requirements.
Regulations vary from state to state. Some common state regulations include the type of training staff are required to receive, what must be covered in the residency agreement, and the types of services we can provide.
Q: How do I locate the proper state agency?
Each state agency shares licensure information and inspection reports differently. In some states, you can verify a provider’s license(s) and read their inspection reports online. However, in other states, you must request to have this information mailed to you. You may also request the latest inspection report directly from individual assisted living communities.
