State Long-Term Care Ombudsman Council

About the Council

  • Created by section 400.0067, F.S.
  • Among its duties, the State Council assists the State Ombudsman to elicit, receive, respond to and resolve complaints made by or on behalf of residents living in long-term care facilities and assists the ombudsman to discover, investigate, and determine the existence of abuse or neglect in any long-term care facility in the state. It also works to reach a consensus among the local ombudsman councils on issues of statewide concern and acts as an appellate body to resolve any complaints investigated, but not resolved at the local level.
  • The council is composed of one active local council member elected by each local Ombudsman council, plus three at large members appointed by the Governor.
