By

The Jan. 20th, 2008, Oregonian article, by Aimee Green, Check out Adult Care before you Check In, has a useful “Fact Box.” If that “Fact Box” disappears over time, here are the resources listed:

Oregon’s Office of the Long-Term Care Ombudsman — 503-378-6533 or 800-522-2602 — will look up annual inspection reports for callers.

For information about a home’s complaint history or to make a complaint: Oregon Department of Human Services, 800-232-3020.

Counties also investigate complaints, and completed investigations are public.
