How does the department determine my suitability to become a licensed provider or an employee, intern, or volunteer of a licensed provider?

(1) The department determines your suitability as a licensed provider after receiving your application, background authorization(s) for those listed in WAC 388-145-1325(2), and all required documentation outlined in this chapter.
(2) The department determines the suitability of a licensee, employee, intern, or volunteer after receiving their background authorization referenced in subsection (1) above.
(3) You, your employees, interns, and volunteers must not have had a license or contract denied or revoked from an agency that regulates the care of children or vulnerable adults, unless the department determines that you do not pose a risk to a child's safety, well-being and long-term stability.
(4) You, your employees, interns, and volunteers must not have been found to have committed abuse or neglect of a child or vulnerable adult, unless the department determines that you do not pose a risk to a child's safety, well-being, and long-term stability.
(5) You must demonstrate that you, your employees, interns, and volunteers have:
(a) The understanding, ability, physical health, emotional stability and personality suited to meet the physical, mental, emotional, cultural, and social needs of the children under your care; and
(b) The ability to furnish children with a nurturing, respectful, and supportive environment.
(6) At any time, we may require you, your employees, interns, and volunteers to give us additional information. We may also require an evaluation of your facility or property, or of a staff person working for your facility or agency, by an evaluator we recommend. Any evaluation requested by the department will be at your expense. The evaluator must be given written permission to share information with us prior to and throughout the evaluation process.
(7) Any employee, intern, or volunteer who is found to have misrepresented or provided fraudulent information may be disqualified.
(8) Before granting or renewing a license, your licensor will assess your ability to provide a safe environment for children and to provide the quality of care needed by children placed in your care. Your licensor will also determine that you meet training requirements.
