An unnanounced Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was conducted on 01/30/2018 from 12:00 p.m. until 2:45 p.m. to review supplemental health and safety requirements. There were 7 children, ages 9 months old to12 years old, for a total of 15 points, in care at the time of arrival with a substitute provider who also serves as a regular assistant to the vendor. The records sample size consisted of 9 children?s records and 11 vendor / caregiver / household member records. Children were observed resting quietly on cots during nap time, using a hand held digital device, and an infant was observed being held cuddles, talked to and bottle fed. Diapering procedures and hand washing were also observed. Medication administration was not observed. The caregiver states that no medication is administered to children in care at this time and that children are not routinely transported in a vehicle. Children play outdoors in the back grassy area or on the back porch with direct supervision and close proximity of the caregivers. The caregiver reports that there have been no accidents or injuries requiring first aid or medical treatment incurred by children in care since the last inspection. There are no children currently enrolled who have diagnosed food allergies. A licensing inspection was also conducted this date; the two inspections combined cover all subsidy health and safety requirements. Only subsidy requirements that are not covered in licensing standards are reviewed during this supplemental inspection. Violations were found during the supplemental subsidy health and safety inspection requirements and are identified on the violation notice. Thank you for your time during today's inspection. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I may be of assistance.

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.
