Technical assistance was provided regarding instructions for completing out of state Child Abuse and Neglect Central Registry searches. Program lead qualification requirements were also discussed.
A complaint investigation was initiated on February 15, 2019 regarding staff qualifications. After interviewing staff, reviewing staff records, and observing in the infant room, there is a preponderance of evidence to support the allegation regarding no lead qualified staff in the infant room and therefore the complaint is valid. Additional violations were cited today not part of the complaint investigation. Areas of non-compliance are identified in the Violation Notice.
