F.S. 651.051
651.051 Maintenance of assets and records in state.All records and assets of a provider must be maintained or readily accessible in this state or, if the provider’s corporate office is located in another state, such records must be electronically stored in a manner that will ensure that the records are readily accessible to the office. No records or assets may be removed from this state by a provider unless the office consents to such removal in writing before such removal. Such consent must be based upon the provider’s submitting satisfactory evidence that the removal will facilitate and make more economical the operations of the provider and will not diminish the service or protection thereafter to be given the provider’s residents in this state. Before such removal, the provider shall give notice to the president or chair of the facility’s residents’ council. If such removal is part of a cash management system which has been approved by the office, disclosure of the system must meet the notification requirements. The electronic storage of records on a web-based, secured storage platform by contract with a third party is acceptable if the records are readily accessible to the office.
