Standard #: 22VAC40-185-500-B
Description: Based on observations, a staff member did not properly dispose of soiled diapers. Evidence: During the inspection, the licensing inspector observed a staff member in the Orange room change a child's diaper. The staff member was observed lifting the top of the foot operated trash can and throw the soiled diaper in it. Disposable diapers are required to be disposed in a leakproof or plastic-lined storage system that is either foot-operated or used in such a way that neither the staff member's hand nor the soiled diaper touches an exterior surface of the storage system during disposal.

Plan of Correction: Per director - The issue was addressed with the staff member during the inspection. The director reminded the staff and will review with all staff the proper way and the reasons why to dispose of diapers correctly.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-570-E
Description: Based on observation, the facility did not ensure all prepared infant formula was dated. Evidence: During the inspection, the licensing inspector observed two bottles belonging to Child #4 placed inside the Younger Infant's refrigerator. The bottles were labeled with the child's name but were not labeled with the date.

Plan of Correction: Per director - Corrected during the inspection. As part of the morning drop off routines, staff check the bottles as they are placed in the refrigerator. This child came in later during the day. I will remind the staff to check the bottles at different shifts during the day to ensure they are all labeled correctly.
