I have not but I assume it's highly specific to the state/county/city but since trans rights are still very undefined almost anywhere I would contact the care facility to ask them. I assume though that the reason you're writing is that someone you know who is a resident and trans isn't being treated well. If that is the case I suggest calling the general manager or perhaps a more senior person, calmly explain what's going on from what you've seen. I'd then ask (as innocently as I could): "If your (friend, parent, fill in the blank) was in this situation, where their health or care is jeopardized, what would YOU do?" 

Hope that helps.

I think Emma is correct that it mainly depends on where it is and what laws exist in that area. Another consideration though are medical ethics - if the person is not receiving proper treatment because of their gender identity the ethics of the staff can be called into question. That would be a matter to raise with the medical board in that state.
