To obtain online copies of detailed reports of the Iowa Department of Inspection & Appeals for specific health care facilities in Iowa, consult the Entity Search. These “report cards” include PDF copies of the original site visit reports, survey results, and “statements of deficiencies and plans of correction.”
In Iowa, the Health Facilities Division of the Department of Inspections and Appeals inspects, licenses, and/or certifies more than 4,000 Iowa providers and suppliers of health, habilitation, and adult services, including skilled nursing facilities.
The US government’s Medicare site offers a “nursing home compare” search where you can compare nursing home facilities by location.
