Petitioner, a professional day care provider with an unblemished record and a reputation as a gentle caretaker, retained her certificate of registration to operate a family day care. There was insufficient evidence that Petitioner was responsible for harming an infant in her care after he experienced chronic subdural hemorrhaging, likely caused by abusive head trauma. There was also no evidence that she did not report to the infant’s distress to his parents in a timely manner, nor that she failed to call emergency services where warranted.
