Standard #: 22VAC40-111-730-D
Description: Based on observation, medications were not kept in a locked place using a safe locking method to prevent access by children.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-220-A
Description: Based on observation, review of documentation and interview with the provider it was determined that the provider failed to obtain Medication Administration Training (MAT) certification to safely perform medication administration. Evidence: 1. The family day home policy stated that the provider would administer both prescription and nonprescription medication to children in care. 2. There were ten nonprescription medications on site. 3. The provider is not MAT certified.

Plan of Correction: Provider was allowing parents to keep non prescription medication on site as a convenience to the parents in the event they needed to come administer medication during the work day.

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.
