Inspection timelines.

(1) In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the governor suspended the requirement for the department to conduct full licensing inspections of adult family homes required by RCW 70.128.070 (2)(b).
(2) During the suspension of the full licensing inspection requirements, the department continued to conduct complaint investigations in adult family homes when it became aware of information that indicated an immediate threat to resident health and safety may exist.
(3) The department must prioritize and resume full licensing inspections of adult family homes affected by the suspension of the inspection requirements by applying the following criteria collectively:
(a) The department has identified an ongoing threat to the health and safety of residents through one or more reported complaints, previous inspections, or previous investigations;
(b) Whether the adult family home has had a remedy imposed in the last 24 months; and
(c) The length of time since the last full licensing inspection of the adult family home.
(4) The department must conduct a full licensing inspection for adult family homes licensed after the reinstatement of RCW 70.128.070 (2)(b) in accordance with the schedule set by that section.
