Chapter 388-101 WAC

Changes to Chapter 388-101 WAC are needed to align with new or changed legislation to include the following: HB1307 outlines enforcement changes in regards to CCRSS providers. Initiative 1163 modifies the law governing background checks, training, and home care aide certification for long-term care and must be implemented in this program by 1/01/16. This created changes in the definition section of this WAC and Long Term Care Worker Requirements (WAC 388-101-3259) and Background Checks (WAC 388-101-3202). SB 5600 modified certain definitions concerning vulnerable adults, including the definitions of abuse and sexual abuse, and also amended RCW 74.35.020 and RCW 74.34.205. These changes are reflected in the definition section of this WAC.
