|Allegation deemed UNSUBSTANTIATED.|
Licensing Program Analyst (LPA) Avila made an unannounced visit for the purpose of continued investigation into the above allegations. LPA Avila met with Toddler Site Supervisor Patsy Partida and advised the nature and purpose of the visit. LPA Avila observed the children in care in the toddler component program. The allegations assert staff is not qualified. Upon review of staff records, LPA Avila noted staff is qualified. Phone interviews obtained from parents and LPA observations found no corroborating evidence to support a lack of care and supervision at the facility. Although the allegation may have happened or is valid, there is not a preponderance of evidence to prove the alleged violations did or did not occur, therefore the allegations are UNSUBSTANTIATED. As of January 1, 2017, the term “inconclusive” is no longer used to refer to the outcome of certain complaint investigations. Such complaint allegations are now deemed “unsubstantiated.” This document has not yet been updated to reflect this change and for purposes of this complaint investigation the Department’s finding is that this complaint was UNSUBSTANTIATED. No deficiencies were issued during this facility visit. Appeal rights were given.
