In Texas, survery results have to be posted in a public area, where any one can see them. (We were cited on this one a couple of years ago..the results themselves were not posted, but a notice saying "Ask for the results at the Nursing station" The actual results are now posted on a BB in the hall near the station)
If not the case where you live, there should be an ombudsman's
Or, the state agency that oversees LTC facilities should be online..
