If a licensed operator meets the requirements provided in this section, then the operator may participate in the self-survey program. This means an operator is allowed to conduct a self-survey for two years. On the third year the department of health will conduct an on-site verification survey to assure compliance with this chapter and determine if the temporary worker housing still meets the requirements of the self-survey program.
(1) To be in the self-survey program the operator must:
(a) Meet the requirements of WAC 246-358-025
(b) Not have had any valid complaints;
(c) Have had two consecutive years without any deficiencies or have had very minor deficiencies (for example one or two screens torn, missing a few small trash cans, etc.); and
(d) Be recommended by the health surveyor.
(2) For a licensed operator to remain in the self-survey program the licensed operator must:
(a) Continue to comply with subsection (1) of this section;
(b) Continue to not have any deficiencies or very minor deficiencies; and
(c) Not have a change in ownership.
(3) When licensed temporary worker housing changes ownership, the new licensed operator must comply with the requirements of subsection (1) of this section before being eligible to be on the self-survey program.
