Standard #: 22VAC40-185-320-B Description: Based on measurements taken during the inspection, the licensee did not ensure that hand washing sinks located near toilets have warm running water that does not exceed 120 degrees Fahrentheit. Evidence: The hot water tap at the handwashing sinks located outside of the restrooms in classroom D measured 123.3 degrees Fahrenheit with a digital thermometer when allowed to run for approximately 2 minutes during the inspection. At 11:58 a.m. a child who was washing his hands said "That water is too hot!". A staff person from classroom A adjusted the water temperature by turning up the cold water faucet and assisted the remaining children with washing their hands. Plan of Correction: Staff requested that their maintenance employee adjust the water temperature to a cooler temperature. This adjustment was made during the inspection. The water will be remeasured this afternoon to see if the adjustment was adequate. Until then, staff will adjust the mix of hot and cold water to ensure that it is not too hot before children use it.
