Technical Assistance:
We discussed the requirements for children's records, background checks, emergency drills and outdoor safety. The risk assessment for violations were provided. You talked about your plans for replenishing the mulch and making sure all landscaping material maintenance is attended to this month. Per our conversation, you were reminded that the residence is licensed as a family day home. Standard 320-F states that unvented fuel burning heaters, including portable kerosene heaters, shall not be used when children are in care. You indicated that the portable kerosene heater was borrowed when you had a power outage. Please, review the licensing standards regarding portable heaters and let me know if you have any questions.

Comments:
Thank you for your assistance during today's unannounced monitoring inspection conducted from 12:40 PM to 3:55 PM. Today, there were eight to ten children in care, infancy through age five (up to thirty-one points) with two caregivers. I viewed daily routines, staffing, supervision, interactions with children, activities, equipment, snack, menu, posted information, three records for children, three caregiver/resident records, caregiver training, emergency supplies and drill records, indoor and outdoor areas. There have been no treated injuries. The provider has planned seasonal activities. The children have enjoyed an egg hunt and Easter art. Nap time accommodations were conducive to rest and children were checked closely by the provider. We talked about the importance of checking email for notices that come from Richmond. Let me know if you have any questions. 540/430-9259

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-111-830-B
Description: Based on a review of the emergency practice drills since 2015, and an interview with the provider, there was only one shelter-in-place drill for 2016. Evidence: Two shelter-in-place drills were conducted and recorded for 2015 as required. Only one shelter-in-place practice was conducted and documented in the drill log on January 11, 2016. The next drill was recorded as January 4, 2017. The provider was not able to provide any other drill information for 2016.

Plan of Correction: The provider will resume conducting and recording at least two shelter-in-place practice drills each calendar year. The emergency drill log will be used to record each practice on the date of the drill.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-100-A
Description: Based on a review of three records of children, and an interview with the provider, the physical examination for child 3 was not obtained within thirty days of the first date of attendance. Evidence: The first date of attendance was January 30, 2017 and there was only an immunization report in the record.

Plan of Correction: The provider immediately sent a text message to the parent of child 3 and requested a copy of the physical examination record. The provider will obtain a copy of the report once the parent arranges for the information to be sent by FAX.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-240-A
Description: Based on observation of the outdoor playground area, and an interview with the provider, there were unsafe metal protrusions at ground level on the playground. (Repeat Violation.) Evidence: Near the to-fro swings, the wooden border has a rebar section protruding upward one and one-half inches in length. Another piece of rebar is protruding and bent outward about one inch.

Plan of Correction: The provider will have the person who is scheduled to come work on the mulch replenishment and border board replacements make sure the protruding rebar metal is removed and there are no more protrusion hazards. The provider will make sure the children stay away from this part of the play area until the repairs are done. The provider will make sure she does a regular check of the playground area to check for maintenance needs and to correct any hazardous conditions.

Standard #: 22VAC40-191-40-D-5-a
Description: Based on a review of three records for caregivers and residents, and an interview with the provider, the central registry check was obtained late for resident 3 and not within thirty days of becoming age eligible for the background check requirement. Evidence: Resident 3 became eligible for the central registry check in mid-January. The request form was not completed until February 10, 2017 and the clearance was processed on March 6, 2017.

Plan of Correction: In the future, the provider will anticipate the need to request the background checks the week of eligibility and keep all related documentation if requests are returned. The provider will make sure the background checks are obtained within thirty days of the date of eligibility.
