Long Term Care Facilities
To determine compliance with operational, care, treatment and physical plant standards, the Department inspects the nursing home prior to and following licensure. The Department determines compliance through on-site inspections, review of schematic and construction plans, and reports of qualified inspectors.

Initial Inspections ( 175 NAC 12 Sections 005.01-005.02E):
The Department must conduct an initial on-site inspection to determine compliance with 175 NAC 12 Sections 006 and 007. The inspection must occur within 30 working days, or later if requested by the applicant, of receipt of a completed application for an initial license. The Department must provide a copy of the inspection report to the long term care facility within ten working days after completion of an inspection.
Physical Plant Inspections (175 NAC 12 Sections 005.03-005.03B2):
The Department must conduct inspections for conformity with construction plans and compliance with 175 NAC 12 Section 007 at new facilities or new construction prior to use or occupancy.
Compliance Inspections (175 NAC 12 Sections 005.04-005.06B):
