Overall Rating


When choosing assisted living care, consumers are reliant on their state’s regulatory agencies to provide information about communities and their backgrounds. But public access to assisted living records varies greatly state by state. Here is a snapshot of the level of transparency in the state of North Dakota:

Key Findings

  • North Dakota does not make information about inspections, violations and complaints available online.
  • North Dakota is in the lowest quartile for assisted living transparency.

How to Access Records

  • Contact the North Dakota Department of Health directly for information about the backgrounds of providers.
  • Visit to locate the appropriate long-term-care ombudsman. He or she can often provide specific information about communities and their backgrounds.
  • If you need to make a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to get records, consider browsing these state-by-state resources from the National Freedom of Information Coalition, which includes sample state-specific FOIA letters.
