New rules went into effect Monday requiring Oklahoma's day cares to have on site inspection reports and other records for parents to view. However, several of the state's more than 5,000 facilities may not have the information available yet, officials said. Policymakers at the state Department of Human Services approved the changes this summer after the death of a 2-year-old boy whose mouth was taped over at a Tulsa home day care. DHS spokesman George Johnson said Monday that day cares have 60 days to come into full compliance. He said they will get warnings until after Dec. 1 if DHS workers find the records aren't available yet. Kathy Cronemiller, president of the Oklahoma Child Care Association, said many day care owners won't understand the new rules until the next time a DHS licensing worker does an inspection and explains them. "The letter that was mailed to providers ... it's a little complicated. And, if you're not ... ‘in the know' or keep up with what's going on, it will be very vague and they won't understand it very well,” Cronemiller said. "There are a lot of us, like I've been posting my licensing reports for years.” Under the new rules, a day care must post near the main entrance: •A notice to parents that records are there. •A summary of any DHS investigation confirming abuse or neglect there. That summary must stay up for 120 days after the investigation is completed. •Any DHS letter allowing a former criminal to work there. Also, the day care must keep in a file accessible to parents: •The most recent DHS inspection report. •Any other DHS inspection reports in the past 120 days. •Records on licensing complaints in the past 120 days. •Any DHS notice to comply with rules in the past 120 days. •A summary of any inconclusive DHS investigation in the past 120 days. •A summary of any investigation confirming abuse or neglect in the past year. DHS officials ordered the changes after being criticized over the death of Joshua Minton in Tulsa. He died May 17, hours after day care owner Vicki Chiles allegedly taped over his mouth because he was whining at naptime. She is charged with first-degree murder. After his death, his parents said they would have removed their children from Chiles' care if they had known DHS had investigated her and already substantiated she abused an 8-year-old boy at the day care in April. Chiles said she had spanked that boy with a flyswatter, according to reports.
