Evidence: One of five reviewed records did not support an immunization record was obtained prior to the child's attendance. The record for child #3 noted the date of entry as 08/25/17; the immunization record on file was dated 01/18.

Plan of Correction: The responsible staff will audit records to ensure documentation of current immunizations is on file in the center prior to a child's first date of attendance.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-320-B

Evidence: The LI turned on the water to test temperature, the water was cold and did not warm after letting the water run for a brief period. Staff reported that maintenance had been in the center servicing the sink drains and may have turned off the hot water at the main valve.

Plan of Correction: Staff will notify maintenance to check the water and to ensure hot water is connected and working.
