Bureau of Field Operations

Field Operations directs facility inspections, which evaluate factors such as:

  • management and administration
  • nursing services
  • social services
  • dietary services
  • laboratory services
  • compliance with state and federal fire safety codes

It also maintains records of survey deficiencies and completes survey report forms. When deficiencies are found, a report is generated to the facility for corrective action. When necessary, Field Operations recommends sanctions, fines, and de-certifications.

In addition, it helps to develop facility regulations and procedures and carries out certain quality assurance initiatives. Field Operations has eight field
that offer facility quality assurance services to Florida's 67 counties.
