Currently, the FIA requires medi-
cal screenings and clearances from law
enforcement and Children's Protective
Services for all adults living in a home
before it gives out licenses, but does not
conduct background checks for assistant
caregivers. Group home operators also
must be trained in first aid and CPR,
and homes are inspected for things like
smoke detectors, fire extinguishers and
However, there are no educational
requirements for home operators like
there are for program directors at out-
of-home centers. The new rules will
likely require training for all care giv-
ers, Sinnamon said.
Rice's license was renewed Sept. 13,
and an FIA report from a Sept. 1 inspec-
tion cited only minor violations, includ-
ing not enough toys and no records of
fire or tornado drills.
Peters noted that stricter rules or bet-
ter enforcement can't guarantee total
security, adding that the real issue is
violence in the community.
"Centers and homes - but homes in
particular - are parts of communities,"
she said. "How far can we put our child
care in a safety bubble?"
