What are the required ratios of staff to children under care in an SRH?

(1) You must have at least one direct care staff for every six children during waking hours for the children placed in your home.
(2) During sleeping hours at least one staff person must be awake when:
(a) There is a written supervision agreement or a contract with the department specifying an awake staff is needed for either the program or a specific child; or
(b) A youth's behavior poses a safety risk to self and/or others; or
(c) A child's medical condition requires constant monitoring.
(3) The need for overnight supervision must be documented in each child's treatment plan, if awake supervision is necessary.
(4) When only one direct care staff is on duty, a second person must be on-call and available to respond within thirty minutes.
(5) You must have relief staff so that all staff can have the equivalent of two days off a week. This is not required for family members if the staffed residential home is a family residence.
