Inspectors from state health departments regularly visit hospitals on behalf of Medicare to make sure that the hospitals are meeting the requirements to participate in the program. In their visits, often after complaints from patients, family members, nurses and physicians, the inspectors talk to patients and staff members and review medical reports and other evidence.
