Technical Assistance:
Today we discussed the storage of potentially harmful substances and the requirement that these items be kept in a locked area where children are not able to access them. Within 90 days of signing the vendor subsidy agreement, all staff must have current CPR and First Aid Training as well as documentation of completing the Virginia Preservice Training. Today we discussed precautions (locks or locked doors) to ensure children cannot access / open the top loading freezers located in several areas that children do not normally utilize, but could access if precautions are not in place. ? New subsidy requirements became effective on October 17, 2018. 1. A written policy and procedure to ensure care by consistent staff. 2. Additional information documented in the center's emergency preparedness plan to address procedures for the continuity of operations to ensure that essential functions are maintained during an emergency. ? The facility is to review the new requirements and work with their assigned inspector to ensure future compliance

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-665-620-A
Description: Based on observation, the vendor did not ensure that all hazardous substances are kept in a locked place using a safe locking method that prevents access by children. Evidence: Small pump bottles of Hand Sanitizer were observed sitting on a desk surface at a height accessible to the children in room 9 and room 10. There were 10 children, 5 to 6 years of age, in each classroom with one staff at the time that the hand sanitizer was observed on the desk. The hand sanitizer bottles are labeled "keep out of reach of children" and has additional warnings about contacting a physician or poison control if ingested due to the high alcohol content.

Plan of Correction: These items were relocated to areas not accessible to the children during the inspection. The program administrator stated that she will purchase locking mechanisms to secure these and any other items which are potentially hazardous to the children in care. They will be installed by Monday, 12/10/18.
