When choosing an assisted living community, it is important to understand Oregon state regulations for assisted living facilities and know how to look up assisted living license information. But public access to assisted living records varies greatly by state.
We developed a system to rate each state on how easy – or difficult – it is to find important assisted living records and reports, and compiled tips to help you in your search.
States with the most transparent records allow you to look up important information about each assisted living facility online, including inspections, complaints, survey results, violations, capacity, and whether the facility accepts Medicaid.
Access to Oregon assisted living records: High
Public access to assisted living records and reports for the state of Oregon is high. Key findings that informed this rating include:
Oregon has generally accessible assisted living records but was marked down on some criteria, including for inspections that occur on a less than annual basis (every 2 years).
Oregon has increased in ratings due to the list of licenses being searchable and enforcement actions being listed in the same place as licensed communities.
Enforcement actions can be viewed, but for greater detail a record request must be placed with Oregon Department of Human Services.
