The scope and severity levels, along with associated monetary penalties, are part of proposed regulations that were generated to bring the Division of Public and Behavioral Health’s Child Care Licensing Unit into compliance with legislation passed in 2017.
The proposed regulations include:
- A complete framework for applying sanctions;
- Ratios, trainings, and mandated reporting;
- Director qualifications and designated operator qualifications to help build transparency; and
- Clarity of standards to help ensure provider compliance.
Documents related to the proposed regulations can be found here. The regulations were approved by the Nevada Board of Health on June 5, 2020. The final review will be at an upcoming Legislative Commission hearing (date to be announced).
