Chapter 192

Effective - 28 Aug 2014 bottom

  192.2210.  Deficiencies, operator informed in exit interview, requirements — plan of correction — categories of standards established — inspection reports made available — notices required. — 1.  Whenever a duly authorized representative of the department finds upon an inspection of an adult day care program that it is not in compliance with the provisions of sections 192.2200 to 192.2260 and the standards established thereunder, the operator shall be informed of the deficiencies in an exit interview conducted with the operator or his designee.  The department shall inform the operator or designee, in writing, of any violation of a class I standard at the time the determination is made.  If there was a violation of any class I standard, immediate corrective action shall be taken by the operator or designee and a written plan of correction shall be submitted to the department.  A written report shall be prepared of any deficiency and a copy of such report and a written correction order shall be sent to the operator or designee by certified mail or other delivery service that provides a dated receipt of delivery at the adult day care program address within ten working days after the inspection, stating separately each deficiency and the specific statute or regulation violated.

  2.  The operator or designee shall have five working days following receipt of a written report and correction order regarding a violation of a class I standard and ten working days following receipt of the report and correction order regarding violations of class II or class III standards to submit a plan of correction for the department's approval which contains specific dates for achieving compliance.  Within five working days after receiving a plan of correction regarding a violation of a class I standard and within ten working days after receiving a plan of correction regarding a violation of a class II or III standard, the department shall give its written approval or rejection of the plan.

  3.  If there was a violation of a class I standard, an unannounced reinspection shall be conducted within twenty calendar days of the exit interview to determine if deficiencies have been corrected.  If there was a violation of any class II standard and the plan of correction is acceptable, an unannounced reinspection shall be conducted between forty and ninety calendar days from the date of the exit conference to determine the status of all previously cited deficiencies.  If there was a violation of class III standards sufficient to establish that the adult day care program was not in substantial compliance, an unannounced reinspection shall be conducted within one hundred twenty days of the exit interview to determine the status of previously identified deficiencies.

  4.  In establishing standards for each type of adult day care program, the department shall classify the standards into three categories as follows:

  (1)  Class I standards are standards the violation of which would present either an imminent danger to the health, safety or welfare of any participant or a substantial probability that death or serious physical harm would result;

  (2)  Class II standards are standards which have a direct or immediate relationship to the health, safety or welfare of any participant, but which do not create imminent danger;

  (3)  Class III standards are standards which have an indirect or a potential impact on the health, safety or welfare of any participant.

  5.  Every adult day care program shall make available the most recent inspection report of the adult day care program.  If the operator determines that the inspection report of the adult day care program contains individually identifiable health information, the operator may redact such information prior to making the inspection report available.

  6.  If an adult day care program submits satisfactory documentation that establishes correction of any deficiency contained within the written report of deficiency required by this section*, an on-site revisit of such deficiency may not be required.

  7.  If, following the reinspection, the adult day care program is found not in substantial compliance with sections 192.2200 to 192.2260 and the standards established thereunder or the operator is not correcting the noncompliance in accordance with the plan of correction, the department shall issue a notice of noncompliance, which shall be sent by certified mail or other delivery service that provides a dated receipt of delivery to the operator of the adult day care program, according to the most recent information or documents on file with the department.

  8.  The notice of noncompliance shall inform the operator or administrator that the department may seek the imposition of any other action authorized by law.

  9.  At any time after an inspection is conducted, the operator may choose to enter into a consent agreement with the department to obtain a probationary license.  The consent agreement shall include a provision that the operator will voluntarily surrender the license if substantial compliance is not reached in accordance with the terms and deadlines established under the agreement.  The agreement shall specify the stages, actions and time span to achieve substantial compliance.

  10.  Whenever a notice of noncompliance has been issued, the operator shall post a copy of the notice of noncompliance and a copy of the most recent inspection report in a conspicuous location in the adult day care program, and the department shall send a copy of the notice of noncompliance to concerned federal, state or local governmental agencies.
