Reminder for staff #3 to completed a sworn disclosure statement prior to this Thursday, 10/22/15.

An unannounced monitoring inspection was initiated today at 1:30pm. The physical plant, 4 staff files, 4 children's files, annual fire inspection, children's activities, medications, emergency procedures, drills and supplies were inspected today. There were 25 children under the supervision of 3 staff. During the inspection, children were observed taking naps, playing quietly, cleaning up for and having afternoon snack and interacting with their peers and teachers. The interactions between the children and staff were seen to be positive and constructive in nature. The center does not provide lunches, as the children bring this from home daily. The center does provide a morning and afternoon snack. Today, the children were served animal crackers and milk. There are currently 2 staff certified in MAT (medication administration training). Three staff are certified in Daily Health Observations, CPR and First Aid. Should you have any questions, please contact me at

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-70-A
Description: Based on file review, 1 out of 4 staff records did not have all required information. Evidence 1. Staff #4 did not have written information to demonstrate that she received the orientation training required by the job position. The orientation form was in staff #4's file, but it was incomplete. 2. Staff #4 does not have written information, to be kept at the center, about any health problems which may interfere with fulfilling the job responsibilities.

Plan of Correction: These will both be completed today.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-240-D-1
Description: Based on file review, a prescribed medication for a child was administered by a staff without having a current certification to administer medications. Evidence 1. On 4/16/15, 6/16/15, 6/23/15, and 7/31.15, albuterol was administered to a child in care by staff #2 whose MAT certification had expired on 3/10/15.

Plan of Correction: Staff #2 is in the process of obtaining MAT recertification, but will no longer administer medications until this has been completed.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-240-D-4
Description: Based on file review, a child for whom emergency medications (such as but not limited to albuterol, glucagon, and epipen) have been prescribed was not always in the care of a staff member certified to administer the medication. Evidence 1. Child #5 requires albuterol on an as needed basis. However, upon the arrival of the Licensing Inspector today, there were no staff present who were certified to administer medications.

Plan of Correction: Staff #1 (who is MAT trained) returned to the center 15 minutes after the LI arrived. The director will make sure that there is always a MAT trained staff present when child #5 is in care at the center.


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.
