Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was completed on 7/16/18. There were 63 children present from four months old through school-age in four groupings. Five children's records and five staff records were reviewed. There were no medications for children at the center. The inspector arrived at the center at 12:30 pm and departed at 4:00 pm. The children were observed during nap time, during outside time, and during free time in the classrooms.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-140-B
Description: Based on record review, the center failed to ensure that a physical examination for a child in care was completed in the time frame required prior to attendance. Evidence: 1. Child #5 who was three months old at enrollment on 6/18/18 did not have a physical examination within 30 days after attendance or within two month prior to attendance. The physical examination was completed by the physician 2/24/18 (at birth).

Plan of Correction: The director will ensure that a physical examination is completed within the time frames required for future children enrolled.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B
Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that hazardous substances such as cleaning materials be kept in a locked place using a safe locking method that prevents access by children. Evidence: 1. There were multiple spray bottles (approximately 10 total) of cleaning supplies located under a sink in the classroom and on a bottom open shelving unit in the bathroom in the classroom that were all unlocked and accessible to the children. The cleaning supplies included glass cleaners, sanitizing solutions, and other cleaners.

Plan of Correction: This was corrected during the inspection. All cleaners were locked under the sink.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-G
Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that hazardous substances not kept in original containers were labeled to clearly indicate the contents. Evidence: 1. There were approximately five generic spray bottles that contained cleaning products. None of the spray bottles were labeled to clearly indicate the contents. 2. There were several generic spray bottles that contained a label of "red" or "green." This does not clearly indicate the contents of the cleaning agent.

Plan of Correction: The bottles will be labeled with a clear indication of the contents.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-J
Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that all medication was kept in a locked place using a safe locking mechanism. Evidence: 1. There was a 600 count bottle of ibuprofen tablets that was approximately half full observed in a cabinet above the toilet in the school-age bathroom. The cabinet was unlocked. The bottle was sitting on the first shelf which as approximately four feet high. 2. There was a second bottle of ibuprofen caplets that had several caplets in the bottle on the third shelf in the same cabinet. The shelf was about six feet high.

Plan of Correction: This was corrected during the inspection. The bottles were moved to a locked area.

Standard #: 63.2-1720.1-B-2
Description: Based on record review, the center failed to ensure that each employ had a fingerprint record completed as a part of the background check prior to employment. Evidence: 1. Staff #2 who had a documented hire date of 3/5/18 had a completed fingerprint eligibility letter dated 3/12/18 which was not before employment.

Plan of Correction: The director will ensure all fingerprint eligibility letters are received prior to employment for future.
