Technical Assistance:
We discussed the requirements for minor injury notification to parents, and diapering procedures. The risk assessments for violations were provided. As a reminder, the mulch should be raked often with frequent use of playground equipment.

Thank you for your assistance during today's unannounced monitoring inspection conducted from 10:45 AM to 3:45 PM. Today, there were fifteen children, ages twenty-three months to five years, with three to four staff. I viewed daily routines, activities, equipment, staffing, supervision, interactions with children, posted information, diaper ointment, sunscreen, medication records, injury records, emergency supplies and drill records, asbestos management, health inspection report, three records for children, four staff records, staff training, diapering procedures, meals and snacks, indoor and outdoor areas. The children have enjoyed regular outdoor experiences. The teachers have planned age appropriate activities and learning themes. The pre-kindergarten children have been learning about dinosaurs. Teachers engage children in songs and discussions during transitions and waiting periods. Let me know if you have any questions. 540/430-9259

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-500-B
Description: Based on observation of the diapering and bathroom routines after lunch, and interviews with staff, a wet diaper was temporarily placed on a surface that was not used for diaper changes and was not cleaned and sanitized. Evidence: A wet diaper was removed from a child and placed briefly on the bathroom floor while the child was about to use the toilet. Then the teacher took the diaper to the step-on disposal container near the diaper changing station. The cleaning and sanitizing solution were not accessible for use or part of the diapering routine in the bathroom.

Plan of Correction: The director will obtain a lined disposal container in the bathroom or establish a system for easy access for disposal at the diapering station container. The director will review the diaper disposal procedures with staff who change diapers of children who are in the process of toilet training. The teachers will not place soiled or wet diapers on any floor or surface which is not designated as the diaper changing surface to be cleaned and sanitized.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-550-L
Description: Based on a review of documented recent minor injuries treated in June and July 2015, and an interview with administrative staff, there was an injury documented in near the time of June 13, 2015 and the parent was not notified by the end of the day. Evidence: The injury report was dated June 13, 2015, which was an incorrect date since it was a Saturday, and the time of the incident was 10:40 AM. The time of the parent notification was written as 7:00 AM and a sticky note attached to the report explained that the staff person missed speaking to the parent during pick-up on the day of the injury. Administrative staff indicated that the parent was notified during arrival the next day the child attended care and that is when the parent signed the report. The administrative staff person indicated that there were not any attempts to call or e-mail the parent the same day as the incident.

Plan of Correction: The director will review the procedures for parent notification of minor injuries with the staff. Also, the injury report requirements will be reviewed. If parents sign the report on a different date, the attending staff will have the parent add the date. The staff will always use one of the methods available, other than notification during pick-up, to make sure parents are informed by the end of the day about injuries treated at the center. Also, the director will review all written reports to make sure they contain correct information, such as dates.
