Standard #: 22VAC40-185-130-A Description: Based on review of five children's records and discussion with staff on September 26, 2018, the program failed to obtain documentation that one child received the immunizations required by the State Board of Health before the child attended the center. Evidence: 1. Child A's immunization record was obtained on 9/10/2018 and the first date of attendance was 9/04/2018. 2. Staff #1 confirmed the child's first date of attendance and the date the immunization record was received. Plan of Correction: In the future, immunization records will be obtained prior to children's attendance.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-160-A Description: Based on review/update of six staff records and discussion with staff on September 26, 2018, the program failed to ensure three staff members submitted documentation of negative tuberculosis (TB) screenings prior to or within 21 days after employment. Evidence: 1. Review of staff #4 and staff #6's records, on this date, determined that documentation of negative TB screenings was not on file. The staff members' date of employment was 8/29/2018. 2. Review of staff #5's record, on this date, determined that documentation of a negative TB screening was not submitted within 21 days after employment (date of employment - 8/29/2018 and date of TB screening - 9/25/2018). Follow up needed regarding the date recorded on the TB screening form of staff #5. 3. Staff #1 confirmed the dates of employment, lack of TB screenings and date of staff #5's TB screening. Plan of Correction: TB screenings will be obtained for two staff members and follow up will be completed to ensure a correct screening date was documented on one staff member's TB screening report. In the future, continued effort will be made to ensure staff members submit negative TB screenings prior to or within 21 days of employment.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-330-B Description: Based on observation, measurements and discussion with staff on September 26, 2018, the program failed to ensure an adequate depth of resilient surfacing under/surrounding the climbing equipment/equipment with moving parts and adequate fall zones surrounding playground equipment that required resilient surfacing. Evidence: 1. On this date, the fall zone from the climber ladder to the landscape timber was viewed to be approximately four feet and the fall zone from the slide exit to the end of the resilient surfacing was viewed to be approximately six feet, on the lower playground. 2. The resilient surfacing under/surrounding the playground climber on the upper playground was measured between 2 and 5 inches in depth and the surfacing under/surrounding the playground climber on the lower playground was measured between 3 and 5 inches in depth. 3. Staff #1 and/or #2 confirmed the depth of the resilient surfacing and the length of the fall zones. Plan of Correction: The fall zones on the lower playground will be extended. The playground surfacing, on both playgrounds will be raked and additional resilient surfacing will be added, if necessary, to ensure a depth of six inches. An Allowable Variance request will be submitted for the resilient surfacing depth on the playgrounds.
Standard #: 63.2-1720.1-B-2 Description: Based on review/update of six staff records and discussion with staff on September 26, 2018, the program failed to obtain fingerprint results for one staff member prior to the date of employment. Evidence: 1. Review of staff #6's record, on this date, determined that the fingerprint results were obtained on 9/17/2018 and the date of employment was 8/29/2018. 2. Staff #1 confirmed the above dates of fingerprint results and employment. Plan of Correction: In the future, continued effort will be made to obtain fingerprint results prior to a staff member's date of employment.
