Its good to know this information in case you have a problem or question about your family member in Assisted Living & Personal Care Homes.

The New Jersey Department of Health is responsible for the licensing and oversight of New Jersey' Assisted Living Facilities.

These include licensure and certification surveys, follow-up surveys and complaint investigations. On-site surveys verify conditions in a facility. Enforcement actions can be taken if a facility fails to meet compliance regulations. Surveys are not just for health care compliance, but also include fire and safety standards.

The Department of Health certifies Assisted Living Administrators.

If you, or someone in your family who is an Assisted Living resident has a complaint about patient's rights or the level of care, you can contact the Department's Division of Health Facilities Evaluation and Licensing. There is an on-line complaint form at File a Complaint. It takes several steps to fill out the form, and it is proper that you provide accurate identification of the facility. You can also call their Hotline. The number is 1-800-792-9770.
