Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observation, the facility did not maintain the center in a safe condition. Evidence: There is an open space in the wall across from the kitchen door, near the baseboard that measures approximately 1/2 inch wide and 5 inches long. It's large enough for a child to stick fingers into the open space in the wall. In the toddler room, as you enter the door, at the bottom of the wall on the immediate left, there is a piece of trim along the baseboard that has come apart creating a sharp edge.

Plan of Correction: We will have the maintenance man fix this by tomorrow.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-N
Description: Based on observation, the licensee did not dispose of children's medications within 14 days. Evidence: Children #6 and #7 had medication on site that was no longer authorized for use and had not been dispensed in over 14 days. The medication should either be sent home of disposed of by the center.

Plan of Correction: Both medications will be sent home today.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-580-A
Description: Based on inspection of the vehicle, the center did not ensure safety of children on the bus. Evidence: There were 2 tires in the back of the bus blocking the emergency exit door. Two new tires were installed on the vehicle and the old ones were placed in the vehicle.

Plan of Correction: The maintenance person will dispose of them today.

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.
