First aid and emergency supplies, documentation of emergency practice drills and family day home postings were reviewed. Medication is not currently being administered and there have been no reported injuries to children in care since the last inspection. Violations in the areas of administration, caregiver training, physical environment and equipment and nutrition are identified on the violation notice and were discussed with the provider during the exit interview.
