    5         2.Require each provider that is eligible to provide the

    7  each child in care if it is cited for a Class I violation as
    8  defined by rule of the Department of Children and Families.
    9  Notice shall be initiated only upon final disposition of a Class
   10  I violation. The provider shall notify the department within 24
   11  hours of its intent to appeal the Class I violation issued and
   12  final disposition shall occur within 15 calendar days. In
   13  determining the final disposition, the department shall consider
   14  the entire licensing history of the provider, whether the
   15  provider promptly reported the incident upon actual notice, and
   16  whether the employee responsible for the violation was
   17  terminated or the violation was corrected by the provider. If a
   18  provider does not file its intent to appeal the Class I
   19  violation the provider must provide notice of a Class I
   20  violation electronically or in writing to the parent within 48
   21  hours after receipt of the Class I violation. Such notice shall
   22  describe each violation with specificity in simple language, and
   23  include a copy of the citation and the contact information of
   24  the Department of Children and Families or local licensing
   25  agency where the parent may obtain additional information
   26  regarding the citation. Notice of a Class I violation by the
   27  provider must be provided electronically or in writing to the
   28  parent within 24 hours after receipt of the final disposition of
   29  the Class I violation. A provider must conspicuously post each
   30  citation for a violation that results in disciplinary action on
   31  the premises in an area visible to parents pursuant to s.
   32  402.3125(1)(b). Additionally, such a provider must post each
   33  inspection report on the premises in an area visible to parents,
   34  which report must remain posted until the next inspection report
   35  is available.
