Online Inspection Reports
Environmental health sanitarians of your local health district conduct, among other public health functions, inspections of food facilities, recreational water facilities, and campgrounds, which are now available for your review HERE.
Inspections conducted beginning January 1, 2014, can be found here. Over time, more of our programs will be added to this site. Body art and school inspections are expected to be available in December 2014. If you are unable to find an inspection history for a particular facility, it is possible that the facility has been recently licensed or is operated by a new owner. Facilities with a new owner do not show an inspection history from the prior owner on this website, however, this information is available upon request.
A person or entity that wishes to operate as a new facility is required by law to first obtain a license from the Clark County Combined Health District following a review of facility plans and assuring, by inspection, compliance with the regulations related to the specific type of operation. A person or entity assuming ownership of a facility is required to obtain a license from the Clark County Combined Health District immediately upon transfer of ownership. Routine inspections assess the operator’s success in assuring that the facility is being operated and maintained in compliance with current regulations.
If deficiencies are observed during these routine inspections, they are described on an inspection report making reference to the relevant regulation that has been violated. Such deficiencies are typically classified as either “critical”, posing a direct or immediate threat to the safety of the public, or “non-critical”, representing a failure of maintenance.
Ideally, an operation will have no critical violations, but it is unrealistic to expect that a complex, full-service operation can routinely avoid having any violations.
Keep in mind that any inspection report is a “snapshot” of the day and time of the inspection. On any given day, a licensed facility could have fewer or more violations than noted on the report. An inspection conducted on any given day may not be representative of the overall, long-term compliance of a licensed facility. Also, at the time of the inspection violations are recorded but are often corrected on-the-spot prior to the inspector leaving the facility.
