A subsequent complaint investigation visit was made to the facility by LPA Patricia Pacheco. It has been alleged that the facility failed to provide supervision which resulted in a child being bitten by one of the licensee’s dogs. The licensee continued to deny the allegation and stated that there was an incident where a child was pawed gently by one of her dogs but that the child was not bitten. The licensee stated that the child was being appropriately supervised when it happened, the incident was witnessed by the licensee and the child was immediately attended to. The licensee stated that there was a small mark on the child’s face, but no broken skin, and that the parent was notified that day. The licensee stated that if she was worried about any of her pets being aggressive, she would rehome them immediately. During the investigation, child, staff and witness interviews were conducted. It was corroborated that the licensee has been observed to provide sufficient supervision to children in care. It was further corroborated that the pets in the home have not been observed to be aggressive towards any of the children in care. Based on available information, although the allegation may have happened or is valid, there is not a preponderance of evidence to prove the alleged violation did or did not occur, therefore, the allegation is unsubstantiated.
Unsubstantiated

It has been alleged that the facility failed to adequately feed a day care child when the child refused the food which was being served. The licensee continued to deny the allegation and stated that the children are provided sufficient food to eat including meals and snacks. Licensee stated that the parents assist by bringing snacks to the facility on a monthly basis. During inspections at the facility, LPA observed that there was a sufficient amount of food available in the home. LPA observed that there were snacks on the counter which the licensee stated had just been dropped off by one of the children’s parents. During the investigation, child, staff and witness interviews were conducted. It was corroborated that the licensee provides sufficient food during meal and snack times. It was stated that additional meals are not made if a child refuses the meal provided, but snacks are offered. Based on available information, although the allegation may have happened or is valid, there is not a preponderance of evidence to prove the alleged violation did or did not occur, therefore, the allegation is unsubstantiated.

This report was read and reviewed with the licensee and appeal rights were provided.

Notice of site visit must be posted for 30 days from today’s visit.
