Description: Based on record review, the center failed to ensure that all required information was documented in each child's record. Evidence: 1. One of two emergency contacts for child #1 did not have documentation of a complete address. One of the addresses had a road name and city but no house number. 2.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that areas and equipment of the center were maintained in an operable condition. Evidence: 1. The sink drain in the bathroom in between two classrooms that was being used was not working. The sink drain plug was down and could not be opened to allow for water to drain out.

Plan of Correction: The director will call the church to have this fixed.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-320-B
Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that each rest room area was provided with the required items. Evidence: 1. The main rest room (girl's) in the hallway of the center did not have any liquid soap as required.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-350-C
Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that when children are regularly in ongoing mixed age groups, the staff-to-child ratio is applicable to the youngest child in the group. Evidence: 1. At arrival of the inspector at 7:45 am, there were 17 children observed in the gym with two staff. The youngest child was 22 months old; however, the center had the required documentation from the parent of this child as required by Standard 350-F to be able to follow the ratio of the two year old children which is one staff for every eight children. There were children from two years through school-age in the group of children. Based on the mixed age grouping ratio, three staff would be required with 17 children. 2. At 7:58 am the number of children had increased to 18 with two staff.

Plan of Correction: This was corrected at 8:02 when a third staff person arrived in the gym. The ratio was maintained from that time on as children and staff both arrived.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-420-E-1
Description: Based on record review, the center failed to ensure that for each infant, a daily record was maintained with all required information. Evidence: 1. Six infant records were observed for infants who were present on 7/30/18. Five of the six did not have any sleep times documented for the entire day. 2. There was documentation of 10 bowel movements for the six infants throughout the day. There was no description of these for any of the six infants.

Plan of Correction: The director will ensure that the lead staff person in the infant room ensures complete documentation of all required information is made for each infant.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-500-B
Description: Based on observation and interview, the center failed to ensure that diapering occurred as required. Evidence: 1. A two year old child was observed having a soiled (bowel movement) diaper changed while standing up. The diaper table was not observed being used. The standards require that a diaper changing table or a counter top designated for diapering be used for children under three years of age for the purposes of changing the child while laying on a non-absorbent surface. 2. The staff person who was changing was asked about using the diaper changing table. The staff person stated that the changing table was not used and all diapering was done while standing. 3. Approximately six diaper changes were observed and the diapering surface was not cleaned and sanitized as required. The diapering surface after each change was sprayed with bleach and water and immediately wiped with a rag. The diapering surface was not cleaned and was not allowed to dry for two minutes before wiping, as required.

Plan of Correction: This was corrected during the inspection. The director informed staff of the Standard requirement and provided the supplies needed to diaper children on the available diaper changing table. The director reviewed the process of cleaning and sanitizing the diaper changing table with staff.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-570-A
Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that when high chairs were used, the protective belt was fastened. Evidence: 1. Three infants were observed occupying three separate high chairs. The infants were 11 months, 13 months, and 16 months old. The protective belt (safety belt/strap) was not fastened for any of the infants. The infants were sitting in the seats waiting for lunch. There was no staff person within the immediate area (closest staff person was approximately four feet away).

Plan of Correction: This was corrected during the inspection. The infants protective belts were fastened when the inspector pointed out the lack of use of the protective belts.

Standard #: 63.2-1720.1-A
