Investigations and inspections
Mental Hygiene (MHY) CHAPTER 27, TITLE E, ARTICLE 31
§ 31.07 Investigations and inspections.

The commissioner shall have the power to conduct investigations into
the operations of providers of services which are required by this
article to have operating certificates and to make inspections and
examine records, including, but not limited to, medical service and
financial records of facilities to determine whether such providers of
services are complying with the provisions of this chapter and
applicable laws, rules, and regulations. Inspections shall be made as
frequently as the commissioner may deem necessary, but in any event such
inspections shall be made on at least two occasions during each calendar
year, one of which shall be without prior notice, provided, however,
that where, in the discretion of the commissioner, an operating
certificate has been issued to a program with a history of compliance
and a record of providing a high quality of care, the periodic
inspection and visitation required by this section shall be made at
least once during each calendar year provided such visit shall be
without prior notice.
