Technical Assistance:
Today we reviewed the safety precautions for fireplaces when they are used during the hours that children are in care. The home has a gas log fire place in the living room which is open to the area where children are cared for. A baby gate which has a swinging / locking door is installed between the daycare room and the living room and is kept closed and latched at all times that children are in care. At this time, none of the children are potty trained and are not required to walk past or through the living room. As children get older and need to access the restroom, the vendor will need to install a sturdy barrier directly around the fireplace to ensure a child does not touch the flames or fall against the screen which pulls across the opening. Children in care must NEVER have access to the fireplace when it is lit.

A Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was conducted on 1/22/2019 from 12:15 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. to review supplemental health and safety requirements At the time of entrance, 3 children, ages 6 months to 17 months old were in care, for a total of 11points with the vendor. The records sample size consisted of 3 children?s records and 3 vendor / Household member records. Children were observed resting on mats and in cribs, playing with a variety of toys, dancing to music and interacting with the vendor and each other. Diapering procedures and hand washing were also observed. The vendor stated that she does not administer medication to children in care at this time, does not have any children currently enrolled who have diagnosed food allergies and that there have been no accidents or injuries incurred by children in care requiring first aid or medical care. Children are not transported in a vehicle while in care. 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.

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.
