Evidence: The locked storage closet in the Fireflies Classroom contained 2 aerosol cans of disinfectant and a plastic spray bottle of Bleach and Water on a shelf directly above 2 packages of baby wipes, napkins and latex gloves.

Description: Based on document review, the facility failed to implement a monthly practice evacuation drill.

A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.

The online compliance history includes only information after July 1, 2003. In addition, the online compliance history includes information regarding adverse actions that may be the subject of a pending appeal. An adverse action is not final until a provider has exhausted or waived all due process rights. For compliance history prior to July 1, 2003, or information regarding the status of pending adverse actions, please contact the Licensing Inspector listed in the facility's information. The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.
