PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
The department of health (department) would like to withdraw the following proposed rule making (CR-101):
This memo serves as notice that the department is withdrawing the CR-101 [preproposal] statement of inquiry for chapter 246-337 WAC which was filed August 18, 2010, and published in WSR 10-17-119 on September 1, 2010.
The original intent of the preproposal was to update the residential treatment facility (RTF) rules to reflect federal and state regulatory changes and current business and professional practices.
Since the filing of WSR 10-17-119, the department recognizes the additional need to consider the scope of places the RTF regulations and standards should be applied to, and address 2011 legislation establishing licensure of triage facilities.
For these reasons, the CR-101 for chapter 246-337 WAC is no longer current. The department plans to file a revised CR-101 that expands the scope of the proposed rule making.
Individuals requiring information on this rule should contact Barbara Runyon, nursing consultant advisor, hospital and residential treatment facility program manager at (360) 236-2937.
