To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New Jersey Open Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

–A list of hospitals that have been found in violation of the law requiring sexual assault victims to receive emergency contraception upon request

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 7 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Vanessa Nason

Ms Nason,

Unfortunately, the Division of Long Term Care Health Facility Survey and Field Operations only houses information for long term care facilities. The records you are seeking for "A list of hospitals that have been found in violation of the law requiring sexual assault victims to receive emergency contraception upon request" is not a record that the Division of Long Term Care would maintain. I am not certain where you would be able to obtain such a list, but you can try to see if the Division of Acute Care Certificate of Need and Licensing can better direct you as they deal with acute care facilities such as hospitals. I am closing your OPRA request W131567 as this is the incorrect division and you will need to do the following:

Please follow these directions in order to create a new request:

1. Go to: http://nj.gov/health/opra/requests /
2. Click on: "5. Certificate of Need and Licensing"
3. Click on "Click here to submit an OPRA request..." and complete the form.
4. Scroll down & click: submit (to view a copy of the complete form)
5. Review the information and click: accept (to send the request)
6. Stay connected long enough to receive you Request Number.

Thank you for using the OPRA online system.

Thank You,

Jasmyn L. Tirpak
