9:16 am
and citations but it only goes back five years. anything older has to be looked up at regional offices and reviewed in person across the state, something most parents don't have time to do. we want searching ourselves and found a long list of injuries and accidents in the paper files not available online. in emeryville, a child was discovered with second degree burns while walking barefoot on the playground. walnut creek, staff gave a child food they were allergic to on multiple occasions. they failed to report an incident that needed follow up. another day care, written up for not having sufficient food, and being infested with mice. santa rosa, an illness outbreak. 15 kids kossick in one day at one facility, and in a follow up meeting, kids were found napping in cotts with metal edges and screws sticking out. >> unless you have the time and
9:17 am
sophistication to be able to go down to the state department, and look through the licensing records, you don't know. >> reporter: the state says putting tens of millions of pages online would be nearly impossible, but even if you have that information, some parents still don't have a choice. >> right now, in california, there is a huge shortage of child care. >> reporter: blame the high cost of living. >> childcare providers have really high rent, high mortgages. they have to pay for utilities. insurance and local fees are required to stay open, or care for more children. >> reporter: it makes finding quality childcare extremely difficult. some parents have to go with the first facility the kid gets into whether it has a good record or not. >> it disproportionately impacts families with very limited resources, people of color, especially women of color. >> reporter: the industry is only meeting the childcare
9:18 am
needs of 20% of working parents in the bay area. >> right now, 1.8 million families are available for this state assistance childcare who are not getting it. >> the state levied a fine against tudorka tots and instituted a writeup to make sure it doesn't happen again. it's the only violation on an otherwise good record. the owner declined to comment. but no one intentionally spilled water on my baby, but that doesn't make it any less of a problem in the sense that it should never have been accessible to the kids. i don't think emergency protocols were followed. >> reporter: they want to see more oversight. right now, the state only inspects day cares every three years unless there is a complaint. she made sure to post a yelp review online. >> if i was apparent during a daycare search, i would also want to know if a child had been seriously injured.
9:19 am
>> reporter: isaac spent three weeks at st. francis memorial hospital burn center in san francisco. his burns were deeper than expected. >> he now wears compression leggings. he has to wear those for 23 hours a day. the only time he's not wearing them is when we are motioning and massaging his legs in the morning and night. >> reporter: isaac stays home with a nanny. a curious toddler, always exploring. but they make sure he slows down for his daily massages. it helps with the scarring. >> we have long-term care we are dealing with. he may have future surgeries depending on how his skin grows, but he is alive, and happy. >> reporter: happy and healing. >> even when you think you trust someone, then the trust goes away just like that. that database only goes back five years. it can't go back 10 years? it can't work down the road? >> the state says it's saw so
9:20 am
much information, they really can't digitize it. really, it's just the most recent years they have. >> it sounds like isaac's mother did what most parents do. she searched, she went online, they have their license, great. what should parents do? >> reporter: that's a hard question because a lot of parents don't have the time or resources to go down to one of those 14 regional offices. they have them in major parts of the city. east bay, south bay, oakland, san jose, you can go down in person, request the records of the facility you are looking into. that way you can try and figure out if they have a history that could be a dealbreaker for you, or one that you are satisfied with. >> it seems like that $500 fine isn't a lot considering what happened to isaac. $500 is not much. >> isaac's mom didn't even know $500 had been assessed. when we told her, she said
9:21 am
that's appalling. we also found out there was a $500 fine given to another facility for incorrect paperwork, so it just seemed like the gravity of both situations weren't equal, and yet they saw the same fine. >> that's the same fine for driving through the carpool lane. thank you. coming up on mornings on 2 the 9, increasing security and santa clara county. >> hou law enforcement is creating a larger police presence at a pumpkin park in san joaquin. and i catch up with one of the unmasked celebrities from "the masked singer."

9:44 am
is proven to further reduce the risk of blood clots that can cause heart attack, stroke, or cardiovascular death in people with chronic cad. that's because while aspirin can help, it may not be enough to manage your risk of blood clots. in a clinical trial, almost 96% of people taking xarelto® did not have a cardiovascular event. don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, or cardiovascular death. while taking, a spinal injection increases the risk of blood clots which may cause paralysis- the inability to move. you may bruise more easily, or take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. it may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. get help right away for unexpected bleeding or unusual bruising. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. before starting, tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures and any kidney or liver problems. enjoy every moment-and help protect yourself from an unexpected one, like a cardiovascular event. are you doing enough? ask your doctor if it's time for xarelto®.
