INSPECTION PROCESS

  • Inspection Frequency Facility inspections are conducted one to four times per year, depending on the complexity of a facility's menu and their potential risk of a foodborne illness. Inspection reports will become available throughout the year, as inspections are conducted per the frequency requirements.
  • Violations (Two types of violations may be cited)
    • Critical Violations Violations of the Food Regulations, which, if left uncorrected, are more likely than other violations to directly contribute to food contamination or illness. Examples include improper temperature control of food, and the improper cooking, cooling, refrigeration or reheating of food. Such problems can create environments that cause pathogens (bacteria/viruses) to grow and thrive, which put consumers at risk for food-borne illness.
    • Non-Critical Violations Violations not directly related to the cause of foodborne illness, however if uncorrected, could affect the operation of the facility and lead to critical violations. Examples include a lack of facility cleanliness and maintenance, or improper cleaning of nonfood-contact equipment.
  • Types of Inspections
    • Standard This inspection is unannounced to the facility. A local health department sanitarian will conduct a complete inspection covering all items in the regulations for compliance.
    • Thirty Day Inspection This is a standard inspection that must be conducted no more than thirty days after a license is issued to a new Food Service Operation or Retail Food Establishment.
    • Pre-license Inspection This inspection is not required, but may be conducted by the local health department prior to issuing a license to a new Food Service Operation or Retail Food Establishment. The purpose of this inspection is to provide consultation and education to the operator.
    • Critical Control Point (CCP) This inspection may be scheduled or unannounced. A sanitarian will spend time reviewing a facility’s food processes that may directly contribute to food contamination or illness and educates the facility on proper procedures.
    • Process Review (PR) This inspection may be scheduled or unannounced. This type of inspection is similar to a CCP inspection; however the inspections are conducted in facilities such as grocery stores or convenience stores. The inspection will focus on a specific process that may directly contribute to food contamination or illness.
    • Follow-up Inspection This is an inspection for the specific purpose of re-inspecting items that were not in compliance at the time of the standard, CCP and/or PR inspection. These inspections are scheduled.
    • Complaint This is an unannounced inspection conducted as a result of a complaint received by a local health department. The specifics of the complaint will be evaluated and discussed with the person in charge of the facility.

Watkins Still Owes Thousands

Former Judge Only Recently Started Payments
By Mark Hallburn
Publisher, PutnamLIVE.com

When former Putnam William M. Watkins, IIICounty Family Court Judge William M. "Chip" Watkins, III, admitted wrongdoing, in 2012, he agreed to reimburse the State of West Virginia more than $18,000 in costs related to his investigation.

That hasn't happened.

PutnamLIVE.com has asked the West Virginia Supreme Court, for months, whether Watkins made the payment.

Finally, in an email dated December 14th, 2015, Public Information Officer Jennifer Bundy confirms that Watkins has only paid $800 and started monthly payments in May of 2015.

Why did Watkins get a payment plan? Why was he allowed to wait until May of 2015? Is he being charged interest? What is his balance? What is his interest rate?

PutnamLIVE.com asked those important questions and is still waiting for the answer.

Earlier this year, The West Virginia Record published an editorial criticizing what it called "The Double Standard" that it says exists for judicial officials in the Mountain State. Watkins debt seems to fall into that category.

"If we took three years without making a child support payment we would be in jail," says Robert Werner, a Father's Rights Advocate, in Pompano Beach, Florida. "Why are they protecting Watkins?"

You may recall that Watkins received a four-year suspension, without pay, then resigned his positition on the bench, in 2013, after PutnamLIVE.com published a series of videos where he screamed at litigants.

The subject of the first video, Hurricane Bible Church Pastor Arthur D. Hage, wasn't happy to hear about Watkins' payment plan. "He's a rascal," says Hage. "He should have paid those fees years ago. He's a rascal."

CAMC May Be Violating ADA

Ruggier Says Restrooms Are Not Compliant
By Mark Hallburn
Publisher, PutnamLIVE.com

The West VirginiaDuane J. Ruggier, II Human Rights Commission is ruling that there is Probable Cause that CAMC Teays Valley Hospital is in violation of the West Virginia Human Rights Act.

Putnam County resident and lawyer Duane J. Ruggier, II, filed the complaint because he says none of the hospital's patient restrooms comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

A hospital is the last place that many would expect to discriminate against the disabled, but Ruggier says that is exactly what he discovered when he was a patient.

"I was treated very well at the hospital by the doctors and nurses," says Ruggier. "At least some of the patient bathrooms in the hospital should be ADA compliant.  The hospital has ADA compliant bathrooms for the public but the bathrooms in the patient rooms are not ADA compliant."

For someone such as Ruggier, who uses a wheelchair, this is more than a mere inconvenience. "A patient has to leave his room and go down the hallway to go to an ADA compliant bathroom. Otherwise, a handicap patient needs to have the assistance of the nurses and/or staff to go to bathroom."

That is adding insult to injury, which the ADA is designed to prevent.

Ruggier's complaint is being transferred to an Administrative Law Judge.

The administation of CAMC Teays Valley Hospital, was not available when PutnamLIVE.com telephoned the office for comment.

You may recall that Ruggier sued the Hurricane Walmart over lack of hand baskets. He says that lawsuit was resolved when baskets were added to the store.

Deweese Is Issuing Scam Alert

Callers Are Pretending To Represent The IRS

By Mark Hallburn
Publisher, PutnamLIVE.com

The Putnam County Sheriff's DepartmentStephen L. Deweese wants you to know about a scam where callers are pretending to represent the Internal Revenue Service.

On the department's Facebook page, Sheriff Stephen L. "Steve" Deweese is issuing the following alert:

"If anyone gets a call from 1-(202)-864-1672 stating they are the IRS it's a SCAM. It's very professionally sounding when the number is called back for information, so please share this post and disseminate to others. A member of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department called the above number and told them a false name and gave a fake social security number. Next, they told him he owed $2943.00 in overdue taxes. Please pass this on so they do not take advantage of anyone. Apparently, they are calling outside the continental United States."

 

Anyone with information is asked to telephone the Putnam County Sheriff Department's Crime Unit at 304-586-9846 or Drug Tip Line at 304-586-0263.

Publisher’s note: All defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.

A criminal complaint is a legal document that is usually filled out by a law enforcement officer presenting evidence to a judge or magistrate. The judicial official determines if the officer has provided enough evidence to issue a complaint or a warrant for a suspect arrest.
