An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted today. The children were in one classroom with 2 staff and another joined the group when she brought in lunch. The physical plant, 4 staff records, 3 children? records, medications, evacuation drills, injury reports, emergency supplies, and policies were inspected. Children were observed participating in group activity, and eating lunch. Hand-washing procedures were also observed. There was a supply of books, toys, and materials for the children. There was an adequate number of staff with current certification in CPR and First Aid, but only one person employed with MAT. Staff-to-child ratios were in compliance. The center was clean and organized. Areas of non-compliance are identified in this report. Please complete the ?plan of correction? and ?date to be corrected? for each violation cited on the violation notice and return it to me within 10 calendar days from today.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-40-E
Description: Based on staff interviews, record review and observation the Center has failed to ensure the center's policy for administering medication is in compliance with the Standards for medication administration. Evidence: 1. Upon arrival, the Director was not present in the facility. The Inspector observed the children and interviewed staff about the children. The Inspector asked the staff about a child's prescription medication found in a locked cabinet. The staff stated the child has written authorization from the parent to give the medication on an "as needed basis". When asked if they were MAT certified, they stated they were not. The staff said the Director is MAT certified. 2. The Director arrived 30 minutes later and the Inspector asked about the two children who have medication and the hours they are present. Child #1 is a morning enrollment only and Child #2 returned recently to the program and is all day enrollment. 3. Child #1 was present that day and had left 10 minutes before the Director arrived. 4. The Director confirmed she is the only person MAT certified because a staff member did not want to renew her certification to administer MAT.
