An unannounced non-mandated monitoring inspection was conducted in the Family Day Home on July 21,2015. The Piedmont Licensing Administrator (LA) accompanied the Licensing Inspector on this inspection. Areas of the Standards reviewed included areas that were out of compliance at the Renewal inspection. At the time of the inspection, including one resident child, thirteen children were in care of two caregivers. The children's ages ranged from infancy to school-age. The children were observed during indoor and outdoor play and during the lunch meal. Findings of the inspection were reviewed at exit. The Acknowledgment of Inspection form was completed, signed and presented for posting in the Family Day Home. The inspection was conducted from approximately 9:45AM to 12:30PM. If you have any questions, please call this LI at 309-2310. Thank you.
Standard #: 22VAC40-111-30-A Description: Based on observations made by the LI, the Provider failed to meet the requirements specified in 22 VAC 40-80, General Procedures and information for Licensure. Evidence: The Provider did not have the most current issued license posted in the Family Day Home. Plan of Correction: The Provider will post the current license, it was not posted after it was removed to make a copy.
Standard #: 22VAC40-111-50-A Description: Based on review of the written attendance record, the Provider failed to ensure each child whom was in care was identified on the attendance record. Evidence: The LI reviewed the attendance record between 10:15 and 11:00AM. Thirteen children including a resident child was present, the record did not include the names of all 13 children. Plan of Correction: The Provider will check the attendance sheet as soon as a child is brought into the home to ensure all children are listed on the daily attendance record.
Standard #: 22VAC40-111-240-A Description: Based on observations made by the LI and LA, the Provider failed to ensure areas of the home, inside and outside, were maintained in a clean, safe, and operable condition. Evidence: The LI observed a counter top and a wood closet door leaning next to the fence in the back yard where the school-age children were observed playing. Overgrown weeds and a spider web/spider were observed in a child's play house, a screw was not tightened on the pink/blue car being used by the children. Observations of the interior home included: an unlocked basement door which opened directly to steps and a floor vent cover near the kitchen table did not fully cover the opening. The opening was large enough for a table or chair leg to fall into creating unstable furniture placement. Plan of Correction: The Provider will monitor all areas and furnishings of the home on-going to ensure the home is maintained clean, safe and operable. All caregivers will be informed to report any safety concerns to the Provider. All items stored outdoors in the backyard to discard will be removed from the premises. The basement door will be kept locked at all times and monitored by the caregivers. The vent cover will be replaced to ensure the opening is covered.
Standard #: 22VAC40-111-280 Description: Based on observations made by the LI, the Provider failed to store all potentially poisonous substances in areas inaccessible to children. Evidence: The LI observed personal toiletries located in the wall mounted cabinet in the bathroom. The cabinet was within reach of school-age children. Plan of Correction: The Provider will remove all personal items from the cabinet and will store all potentially hazardous substances with a child-resistant lock.
Standard #: 22VAC40-111-560-A Description: Based on observations made during the inspection, the Provider failed to provide direct care and supervision of each child at all times, including being near enough to intervene if needed. Evidence: The LI and LA observed several children in the living room during lunch time. A caregiver was not present in the room while the children were eating. A young male child was moving around the room and was observed pulling on a sofa table with a lamp and candle jar placed on it. The LA had to take action by reaching for the table and lamp to prevent the child from pulling the table and lamp over on him. A caregiver was not present in the area to observe the children's actions and to intervene if needed. Plan of Correction: The Provider will ensure that a caregiver is present in the room where the children are at all times whenever the children are awake and active. Supervision responsibilities will be reviewed with all caregivers.
