"Final Orders" are legal orders that decide a case or claim on a final basis. Final
Orders made available through this web page may not always reflect the final disposition
of a matter since they may have been appealed and the appeal may not yet be finalized. Please
see our information document for Final Orders. If you need
more information on the status of a particular matter, please contact the Agency
Clerk's Office at (850) 412-3630.
“Emergency Orders” are orders that place temporary restrictions on a facility or provider due
to the presence of conditions that constitute an immediate danger to the health, safety and welfare
of patients or residents at that facility. The temporary restrictions may be lifted once the facility
or provider has taken the necessary steps to eliminate the presence of those conditions, although further
disciplinary action may be taken by the Agency.
The Agency has Emergency Orders from 2004 to the present available on the website. Please note that such
orders may or may not still be in effect. To find out whether a particular facility or provider has a current
emergency order in place, you can check the Florida Heath Finder website.
Questions may be submitted to AHCA Communications; requests for documentation may be submitted
to Public Records.

Statement of Deficiencies
The "Statement of Deficiencies" displays violations of a regulation that are found
during an inspection or investigation of a health care provider. Before penalties
for a deficiency are imposed, a licensee has the opportunity to contest Agency findings.
The licensee may disagree with the Agency over the facts or law reported in the
statement of deficiencies. Information available on this site should be interpreted
carefully and used in conjunction with other sources of information. When considering
a facility or health care service provider please also view consumer brochures and guides available
from the Agency.
