B. The provider shall review and complete the checklist before being certified as eligible for issuance of a certificate of registration.

C. If the provider does not meet the criteria on the health and safety checklist at the time of the initial evaluation or monitoring visit, a corrective action plan shall be completed. This will briefly describe the standard not met, the action to be taken to meet it, the date by which it shall be completed and the signature of the provider.

D. The home shall have indoor running water and an indoor bathroom equipped with a flush toilet and a sink with running water.

E. If the provider does not have a working telephone, the caregiver shall demonstrate that one is quickly and easily accessible in case of an emergency.
