(1) The Program shall conduct on-site verification review of each approved Local SDSP. A representative sample of schools being served by the certified program will be reviewed each certification year.
(2) The Program will work with a Local SDSP to schedule a verification review. A Local SDSP will have at least 20 days advance notice before a review will occur. The Program shall schedule verification reviews earlier in the school year with newly certified Local SDSPs, Local SDSPs with new staff, and Local SDSPs that have had deficiencies during their last verification review.
(3) A Local SDSP must coordinate with the Program to access the school and staff operating the sealant program on the verification review date.
(4) The verification review must include, but is not limited to:
(a) Review of documents, policies and procedures, and records;
(b) On-site observation and review of dental sealant placement techniques;
(c) On-site observation and review of IPC practices; and
(d) On-site observation of the client environment and physical set-up of the clinical and administrative areas.
(5) Following a verification review, Program staff may conduct an exit interview with the Local SDSP representative(s). During the exit interview Program staff shall:
(a) Inform the Local SDSP representative(s) of the preliminary findings of the review; and
(b) Give the Local SDSP representative(s) 10 working days to submit additional facts or other information to the Program staff in response to the findings.
(6) Within 30 business days of the on-site visit, Program staff must prepare and provide the Local SDSP with a written report of the findings from the on-site review.
(7) If no certification deficiencies are found during the review, the Program shall issue written findings to the Local SDSP indicating no deficiencies were found.
(8) If certification deficiencies are found during the on-site review, the Program may take action in compliance with OAR 333-028-0350.
(9) At any time, a Local SDSP may request an administrative review of compliance, which includes one on-site visit. The review will be considered a "no penalty" review with the exception of gross violation or negligence that may require temporary suspension of services.
