Adult and Child Care Facility Inspections

The special trained staff at HDNW, our sanitarians, conduct environmental health Inspections for a variety of care facilities, including foster homes, family and group daycare homes, child care centers and children's camps.

The inspections are part of an overall licensing process which helps keep people safe. We follow guidelines determined by the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA), Bureau of Community and Health Systems (BCHS).

Requests for inspections can be made through our offices or by a referral from LARA, depending on inspection required. An inspection may include an evaluation of all or part of the following:

  • Food service
  • Cleaning and sanitation
  • Living conditions
  • Maintenance
  • Sewage disposal and water supply
  • Water sampling of well water
  • Recreational facilities
