Are there requirements for time-out or quiet rooms?

(1) Locked time-out or locked deescalation rooms are prohibited in all facilities. In certain circumstances, facilities may have time-out rooms or deescalation rooms that allow for securing the youth in a room, requiring a staff to be present, holding the door closed so the youth may not exit. In these cases you must meet the following requirements:
(a) Have a window that allows for visual monitoring of all areas of the room;
(b) Have approval from the Washington state patrol fire protection bureau or a certificate of compliance stating that the facility is in compliance with the fire codes with Washington state amendments;
(c) Have approval from the DLR licensor stating the facility is in compliance with the children's administration's behavior management guidelines; and
(d) Have current written approval of the DLR administrator.
