The director had questions about the "Facility Risk Profile Report" that was issued with the provisional license. The report was explained in detail.
An unannounced monitoring inspection (focused) was completed on 7/27/15 as a required inspection for the provisional license period. There were 52 children present in six groupings from toddler through school-age. Seven children's records and four staff records were reviewed. All records from the previous inspection were reviewed to verify correction of the previous violations. There were repeat violations from the previous inspection. The inspector and the licensing administrator arrived at the center at 9:15 am and departed at 4:00 pm. The children were observed during arrivals, during free play time, during outside time, during departure and return from a field trip, during lunch, and during nap. There was discussion with the director about the following: ensuring that the phone number is in the parent handbook, ensuring that the children's water bottles are taken with them on field trips.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-70-A Description: REPEAT VIOLATION Based on record review, the center failed to ensure that six of seven records reviewed had complete information as required by the Standards. Three of the staff records were records from the previous inspection. Evidence: 1.The record of staff #1 was reviewed. Staff #1 did not have an address for the emergency contact of the staff. 2.The record of staff #2 was reviewed. Staff #2 did not have a complete address for the emergency contact for the staff. 3.The record of staff #3 was reviewed. There were no references documented for staff #4; two references are required prior to hire. The hire date for staff #3 was 4/17/15. 4. The record of staff #4 was reviewed. There were no references documented for staff #4; two references are required prior to hire. 5. The records of staff #5,6 were reviewed. All staff job positions were documented as program lead (teacher). Staff #5 was hired 2/23/12 and staff #6 was hired 10/6/14. There was no documentation to show that the staff had the education required by the job position. Plan of Correction: The emergency contact addresses were documented during the inspection for staff #1 and #2. The references for staff #3 and #4 will be completed today. According to the director, staff #5 and #6 have completed the 24 hours of training in the four required areas but this has not been completely documented. In the future, the director will ensure that all documentation required by the Standard is completed in a timely manner.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-240-D-4 Description: Based on observation, record review, and interview with staff, the center failed to ensure that a child for whom emergency medications (such as but not limited to albuterol, glucagon, and epipen) have been prescribed shall always be in the care of a staff member or independent contractor who meets the requirements in subdivision 1 of this subsection which is a staff person trained in Medication Administration Training (MAT). Evidence: 1.A child, five years old, was prescribed albuterol inhalant solution for shortness of breath and wheezing for use as needed. The child was observed to go on a field trip with a staff person in the morning to the park. The medication was not with the child and the staff person was not MAT trained. The child was transported back to the center from the park with a different staff person, according to interview with staff, and this staff person was not MAT trained. The child returned to the park in the afternoon with staff who were not trained. Plan of Correction: The child will not be allowed to attend trips away from the center when the MAT trained staff person is not present. The director will have six staff attend a MAT course to ensure a child is in care of a MAT trained staff person at all times.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that all areas, inside and outside, were maintained in a clean, safe and operable condition. Evidence: 1. There was an electrical cord observed hanging in a loop from the ceiling down to approximately four feet above the floor level in the one school-age classroom. The cord was attached to a surveillance camera that was fixed to the ceiling. When this was observed there were no children present in the classroom and was reported to not have been used the morning of the inspection (children left for field trip at 9:00 am). Plan of Correction: This was corrected during the inspection. A staff person moved the cord above the ceiling tiles. For future, the director will have staff #5 check all areas and equipment of the center before children arrive for any unsafe, unclean, or inoperable conditions.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-560-F Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that the menu for the current one week period was posted. Evidence: 1.At the arrival of the inspector the menu for the week of July 20-24 was posted. The inspector arrived at 9:15 am and the menu was not posted as of 10:00 am. Plan of Correction: This was corrected during the inspection. There was a change in staffing the week prior which prevented the normal routine of posting the menu on Friday from being followed. In the future, the person in charge of the kitchen on Friday will ensure the menu is posted before the end of the day.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-580-I Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that a schedule of the trip's events and locations were posted visible at the center site. Evidence: 1. There was a calendar of events for July for the school-age field trips observed at the center. On the date of the inspection the calendar listed "Career Day." There were 29 school-age children observed leaving for Ballou park during the morning of the inspection. There was no schedule of the actual trip's events or location posted at the center. The parents sign a blanket permission for field trips for the summer program and this trip was not listed on the calendar of events for this date. Plan of Correction: The director will remind staff to post the blackboard in the front foyer each day that will have a notice on it of the day's schedule of events. The director and administrator will monitor that this is done daily.
