Technical Assistance:
During the investigation we discussed emergency evacuations, first aid kits, documentation of staff presence in classrooms, and documentation of children's attendance.

A complaint was received on February 11, 2016 and initiated on the same day. Allegations of lack of following ratios in the late afternoon, incomplete first aid kits and lack of emergency evacuation drills. During the investigation on site inspections and collection of documentation was completed on 3/3/16, 3/18/16 and 4/4/16. The investigation was concluded on 4/4/16. Classroom observations were conducted, children's attendance records and staff time sheets were reviewed. Interviews were conducted with staff. The information gathered does not support the allegations lack of ratios and incomplete first aid kit. Therefore, that portion of the complaint is not valid. However, the information gathered during the investigation does support the allegation of lack of documentation of emergency evacuation drills. Therefore, the complaint is valid. A violation regarding emergency evacuation drills appears on the violation notice. Upon receipt of the inspection documentation, the licensee must develop a plan of correction for each violation. The plan of correction must include the following: ? The steps to correct noncompliance with the standard(s); ? Measures to prevent reoccurrence of noncompliance; ?

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.
