Interviews and interactions were conducted and five children?s records and three staff records were reviewed. There are no children taking medications. An Administrator was present at the exit interview at which time inspection findings were reviewed and an Acknowledgement of Inspection form was signed and left with the licensee. See the violation notice on the Department?s public web site for violations of the Standards. Please complete the "plan of correction" and "date to be corrected" for each violation cited on the violation notice and return it within five business days of receipt.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-130-A
Description: Based on a review of children?s records, the licensee failed to obtain an immunization record for a child before the child attended the center for four of five children. Evidence: 1. Child #1 and Child #2's records, enrolled on June 18, 2019, contained immunization records dated June 22, 2019 and therefore not obtained within the required time frame. Child #3 and Child #4's records, enrolled on July 1, 2019 contained no immunization records. 2. Administrator #1 acknowledged these immunization records were not obtained yet as required.

Plan of Correction: The Administrator will not allow children to begin or continue care at the center without the immunization records.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A

Administrator #1 acknowledged this information was not documented in the children's records as required.

Plan of Correction: The Administrator will review each enrolled child's record to ensure completed emergency contact information is on file and will obtain if necessary.

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.
