Input Needed on Proposed Regulations
Posted Monday, July 25, 2016 by Shelly Nye
The Nevada Child Care Licensing (i.e. State Child Care Licensing) section of the Department of Health and Human Services Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH) has created a form to solicit input from providers on proposed changes that would implement several changes, including changes to the initial training required for new child care workers and child-to-staff ratios. Among the suggested additional initial training topics are allergic reaction response, preparedness and response to emergencies, and prevention of shaken baby syndrome and abusive head trauma. The current proposals also include a change to documentation requirements in the event of illness or injury of a child in a facility.
The proposed changes to Nevada Administrative Code Chapter 432A must undergo an extensive review and approval process. The Small Business Impact questionnaire is the first step in this feedback process. Feedback must be submitted by August 25, 2016.
