Health and Safety Coach helps providers optimize care setting

Community Care Licensing has resumed in-person visits and our Health & Safety Coach is available to offer support and guidance ahead of the facility inspection. The Coach will help providers prepare for an inspection that includes a review of compliance with COVID-19 guidance and licensing regulations.

The recently released Provider Information Notice PIN 21-25-CCP describes the new tool that Community Care Licensing analysts will use during their inspections. This tool includes a focus on supervision, children records, facility administration, environment, staff records, and ratios. The Licensing Analyst inspects the child care facility to make sure all regulations are met. The analyst offers technical assistance whenever possible and it’s required that they address any violation of health and safety requirements.

Analysts have not conducted in-person visits since the start of the pandemic, so CCRC recommends providers set up a coaching session with Manny, the Health and Safety Coach, to make sure all guidelines are met ahead of the visit. Manny will do a virtual walk through with them and go over any new regulations that have come up. He can also answer questions that would help providers prepare for the analyst’s visit.

Some of the most common findings by our Health and Safety Coach are missing or outdated licensing forms, expired employee certifications, and potential safety hazards in the environment. Our coach is here as a second set of eyes to ensure providers are in compliance with Title 22 requirements, as well as best practices based on national standards.

Providers can schedule a virtual visit with coach Manny, where he will provide resources, support, and the most up-to-date safety guidance. Manny also offers a virtual walkthrough of the care setting to help identify anything that may be out of compliance. He will advise providers and provide the appropriate support to make corrections.
