WAC 388-107-0020

Department authority.

(1) Chapter 70.97 RCW authorizes the department to develop rules to implement the chapter, and to license enhanced services facilities. At a minimum the rules are to be written to promote safe treatment and necessary care of individuals residing in each facility, to provide for safe and clean conditions and to establish licensee qualifications, licensing and enforcement standards, and license fees sufficient to cover the cost of licensing and enforcement.
(2) The department, in its sole discretion and after taking into consideration the circumstances of a particular facility such as size or location, may approve alternate staffing, administration, physical plant, or other arrangements that have been proposed in writing by an ESF applicant or licensee. An ESF's failure to comply with a department-approved alternate plan is a violation of this chapter and may result in enforcement actions under WAC 388-107-1430.
