About Health Departments

If I get sick from a restaurant, how do I report it?

Contact the local, county, or state Health Department. In most cases, the Health Department will provide a complaint form and follow up on the complaint. This usually results in an inspection of the business.

What do Public Health Nurses do?

Common tasks of Public Health Nurses include home health supervision visits, communicable disease and food borne illness investigations, public flu and pneumonia clinics, and blood pressure clinics.

Do Health Departments regulate health insurance?

Health Departments are generally established to identify and minimize threats to public health and to promote a healthy environment. They are not involved in the delivery of health care services except on a very limited basis. Oversight of health insurance providers in most states is the responsibility of an Insurance Department.
