b) The supervising agency shall conduct an immediate re-examination of a licensed foster family home when:
1) a child in substitute care or who resides in the home is the subject of an indicated report of child abuse or neglect and the licensee or another household member was identified as a perpetrator; or
2) the licensee or any household member is identified as a perpetrator of an indicated report of abuse or neglect of any child.
c) When the re-examination is conducted by an agency other than the Department, the agency shall forward the results of the re-examination to the Department within 5 business days.
