Amend 12 VAC 35-115-160 to allow the Human Rights Advocate to remove the facility director form reviewing or appointing a designee to review a complaint when the Human Rights Advocate makes a finding that the facility director is not willing and able to render an impartial review of the complaint.
The Board anticipates it will consider public comments on this request at its November 30, 2010 meeting and will then determine what appropriate action is required.

|Agency Decision||Take no action [Transmittal Sheet]|
|Agency Decision Summary||
Section 170 has replaced 160. Complaints should be dealt with at the lowest level possible and should first be directed to the person who caused the problem and has the power to fix it. This is the director. If not satisfied, the complainant can then take the concern to the independent Local Human Rights Committee for a hearing.
