General Statute 108A-14 specifically authorizes county departments of social services to supervise adult care homes under rules promulgated by the N.C. Medical Care Commission. The 1993 General Assembly amended G.S 131D-2.11 to require the department to ensure that these facilities required to be licensed are monitored for licensure compliance on a regular basis.
In carrying out this requirement the Division of Health Service Regulation through the Adult Care Licensure Section works in conjunction with Yadkin Human Services to:
- monitor the facilities in their respective counties at least quarterly,
- investigate complaints, and
- accompany the State Inspection teams for annual surveys.
Please contact Adult Services unit at 336-849-7910, if you need additional information or wish to make a complaint about an Adult Care Home in Yadkin County. Ask for the adult service intake worker.
