WAC 388-101-4215

RemediesSpecificLimited suspension of department referrals (stop placement) for clients with specified needs.

(1) The department may order a limited suspension of department referrals and prohibit the accepting of clients with specified needs if the service provider is noncompliant with the requirements of this chapter, the department's residential services contract, chapter 74.34 RCW, or other relevant federal, state, and local laws.
(2) Once the department orders a limited suspension, the service provider may not accept any clients with specified needs, or at a specific site, until the department lifts its limited suspension.
(3) The department may lift the limited suspension of department referrals if it finds the following:
(a) The service provider has corrected the deficiencies that necessitated the limited suspension of department referrals; and
(b) The service provider has shown the capacity to maintain the corrective action addressed by the limited suspension of department referrals.
(4) After a department finding of a violation for which a limited suspension of department referrals has been imposed, the department must make an on-site revisit of the service provider within fifteen working days from the deficiency correction date documented on an acceptable plan of correction. If the deficiency correction date had occurred prior to the department being notified, the department must make an on-site revisit within fifteen working days from the date the department receives the acceptable plan of correction from the service provider.
(5) If during the service provider's suspension period, the department finds a new violation that it reasonably believes will result in a new suspension or limited suspension of department referrals, the service provider's current suspension will remain in effect until the department imposes the new suspension or limited suspension of department referrals.
