Obama Administration Plans To Improve Day Care Safety

In what will likely be a welcome move for countless Ohio families, the health officials in the Obama administration are working to implement stricter safety requirements in child-care facilities around the nation. The proposals include background checks for employees and guidelines for more comprehensive safety training.

Currently, states use a wide variety of different rules to monitor safety at daycare and other child-care businesses. While many parents might assume that their daycare providers already do background checks and provide training, the reality is that these businesses often cut corners. The result, all too often, is an ill-equipped facility at which a child suffers preventable injuries. 

Daycare providers can be liable under a variety of legal theories. One common thread is the concept of negligence. Like all other people and businesses, daycare providers have a legal obligation to conduct their business in a reasonably safe manner. When they fail to live up to this standard and a child gets hurt, individual employees and businesses are likely responsible for the injuries.
