Sanitation Inspection Guidelines for Family Care Homes: Water Supply Mobile App
The intent of the Sanitation Inspection Guidelines for Family Care Homes: Water Supply mobile app is to help the family home caregiver understand the sanitation inspection process and reasons behind the sanitation requirements.
How does it work?
Each sanitation requirement is designed to help the caregiver keep children healthy and safe. This app can be used as a reference before, during, and after your annual sanitation inspection. These guidelines are organized in the same order as the Sanitation Inspection Report the inspector uses while visiting your facility. Water supplies must meet the requirements. Contaminated water can lead to disease or poisoning. Therefore, all water supplies must be protected from possible contamination. Contaminated water (whether bacterial or chemical) cannot be consumed by children. New facilities’ water systems must be inspected, tested and approved by the inspector before the license can be issued. Existing facilities are permitted to use bottled water for no more than thirty (30) days. The provider must supply three liters of bottled water per child per day or bring all water to a rolling boil for three minutes before consumed.
