Standard #: 22VAC40-185-160-A Description: Based on review of three staff records and discussion with staff #1 on October 6, 2016, the program failed to ensure one staff member's tuberculosis (TB) screening was completed within 12 months prior to employment. Evidence: 1. Review of staff #2's TB report, on this date, established that the screening was completed more than 12 months prior to employment (date of screening - 7/25/2015 and date of employment - 8/18/2016). 2. Staff #1 verified the dates of employment and the TB screening. Plan of Correction: The staff member will obtain a current TB screening. In the future, TB screenings shall have been completed within 12 months prior to or 21 days after employment. Administrative staff will review documents, at the time of hire, to ensure TB screening dates are within the required time frames.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-210-A-4-a Description: Based on review of three staff records and discussion with staff #1 on October 6, 2016, the program failed to ensure that one staff member completed 24 hours of training within one month after beginning work (to meet the program leader qualifications). Evidence: 1. Review of staff #4's record, on this date, determined that 10 of the required 24 hours of program leader training had been completed. The staff member was hired in the position of "program leader" on 9/06/2016. 2. Staff #1 confirmed the hours of completed training and the staff member's position. Plan of Correction: The staff member will complete the additional 14 hours of training by November 6, 2016. In the future, when required, staff members will complete the 24 hours of program leader training within 6 months before being promoted or beginning work or one month after being promoted or beginning work. Administrative staff will monitor training hours to ensure they are completed in a timely manner.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-D Description: Based on observation and discussion with staff #1 on October 6, 2016, the facility failed to ensure that at least one staff member met the qualifications of a program leader or program director in each grouping of children. Evidence: 1. Classroom observation, review of staff records and discussion with staff #1 determined that the staff member supervising classroom #1, on this date, did not meet the program leader/program director qualifications. 2. Review of staff records established that staff #4, supervising classroom #1, had completed only 10 of the required 24 hours of program leader training. 3. Staff # 1 verified the training hours completed by staff #4. Plan of Correction: The staff member will complete the required training hours to meet the program leader qualifications. In the future, staff members will meet the position qualifications, in a timely manner.
Standard #: 22VAC40-191-40-D-1-B Description: Based on review of six staff members' background clearances and discussion with staff #1 on October 6, 2016, the program failed to obtain a central registry clearance for one staff member before 30 days of employment at the facility ended. Evidence: 1. Review of background clearances for six staff members, on this date, determined that a processed central registry clearance was not on file for staff #6 (employment date - 8/15/2016). 2. Review of the central registry clearance form revealed that the form had been returned to the facility for additional information and had not been resubmitted for processing. 3. Staff #1 confirmed that the central registry clearance form had not been resubmitted. Plan of Correction: The form was mailed on this date, with the requested information. In the future, the forms will be carefully reviewed upon receipt, to ensure they have been processed.
