a. When insured the provider must complete form 07LC092E annually as well as obtain a
certificate of insurance from the insurer. These documents contain the same information. Form
07LC045E should be eliminated.
b. Currently the compliance file notification is required to be completed annually by every family in care. We are also required to put the compliance file information in parent handbooks, it is on the bottom of the required DHS Child Information Form, and the notice to parents that we are required to post has this information. It would decrease paperwork if form 07LC046E could be completed on enrollment only, or allow the Child Information form to suffice as proof of notification.
c. Currently the insurance notification form is required to be completed by each family in care annually. Allow form 07LC045E to be completed on enrollment and when changes are made to insurance.
Ex. 1 A child has an allergic reaction to a previously unknown allergen. The parents have not provided the appropriate medication form and Benadryl but the parent calls the ER and they inform the provider to immediately administer Benadryl. If the provider administers it is a violation because of the lack of permission form and parent provided medication, if the provider doesn’t administer and the child has a negative outcome the provider can be cited for “poor judgment”.
Ex. 2 An armed intruder breaks into the provider home and the provider accesses a legally stored and purchased fire arm in order to protect the children. Provider can be cited for the fire arm not being locked away at all times.
