Hi!

Just wondering if this is because there haven't been any violations or if a different agency would be in possession of the information I'm seeking?

Thanks,
Vanessa

From: Department of Health

Dear Vanessa, The Department of Health takes seriously our role to protect the health and safety of all New Mexicans. If we were to receive a complaint that a hospital is not providing emergency care for sexual assault survivors, following federal guidelines and working closely with CMS, we would survey or inspect the hospital.

Complaint surveys are made public record at https://providersearch.health.state.nm.us/. However, our database is not tagged in a way to query specifically for complaints of this nature.

If you have further questions related to your media inquiry, you can contact our Public Information Officer, Paul Rhien at paul.rhien@state.nm.us<mailto:paul.rhien@state.nm.us> or 505.470.2290
