Comments:
A Subsidy Health and Safety monitoring inspection was conducted on 8/15/2018 to review supplemental health and safety requirements. This inspection began at 9:50am and ended at 2:00pm. There were 9 staff with 72 children in 7 classrooms at the time of the visit. At the start of the inspection, children were observed playing outside during water play. Children's files, emergency preparedness procedures, fire drill log were reviewed. The physical plant and playground were inspected. There were two medications on site at this time. A licensing inspection was also conducted on this date; the two inspections combined cover all subsidy health and safety requirements.

Violations were found during the supplemental subsidy health and safety inspection requirements and are identified on the violation notice. Thank you for your cooperation today.

Violations:
Standard #: VENDSUB-000-006-B-11
Description: Based on record review, the center did not obtain a written allergy care plan for each child with a diagnosed food allergy. Evidence: Child #9, Child #10 and Child #11 physical exams confirm that the children have diagnosed food allergies. The children's files do not instructions from a physician regarding the steps to be taken in the event of a suspected or confirmed allergic reaction.

Plan of Correction: We'll ask the parents to discuss the allergies with their doctors to get the required paperwork.
