An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today with the Director beginning at 12:00pm and ending at 2:30pm. There were 66 children in care (ages five-months to five-years-old) supervised by 16 staff. Children were observed eating lunch, in free play with teachers, preparing for nap, and napping. Five staff files and six children's files were reviewed and in compliance. Eleven medications for eight children were reviewed. The emergency drill log, First Aid Kit, flashlight, radio, and incident reports were reviewed.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-C Description: Based on review of 11 medications for eight children, medication authorizations, and interview with the Director, the procedures for one medication were not followed.

The manufacturer's instructions for dosage state: Under 24 lbs. or two years of age, consult a doctor. The Director stated that the center has not received written authorization from the doctor as of this date.
Plan of Correction: The medication will be returned to the parent. Moving forward we will not accept medication if the dosage doesn't match.
