​Nursing homes and hospitals provide care for people suffering from many different illnesses. Good sanitation in hospitals is important to stop the spread of illnesses to those who are receiving care and to healthy people visiting those who are sick.
Hospitals and nursing homes are inspected twice a year. The current sanitation status of a nursing home or hospital can be viewed online.
