TALLAHASSEE, FL- The Department of Elder Affairs said 1,250 assisted living facilities have yet to respond to state emergency requirements.

Beginning November 15th, noncompliant facilities will be subjected to the fine of $1,000 per day or license revocation if they fail to come into compliance by the deadline.

Secretary Bragg said, “We are working very hard to update our information about nonresponsive facilities. We did hear from some ALFs who should not have been on the list, and we immediately went to work to verify the information and correct our list where appropriate. In doing so, however, we have found that the number of nonresponsive facilities actually increased, and we continue to work with facilities to help them follow the guidelines laid out in the rule.”
