An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today from 9:45 - 1 pm. There were 51 children present with 7 staff. I observed children learning about the calm and angry of the ocean with a parachute; coloring in a "shell", learning about pearls, and involved in self-initiated Montessori projects. I also observed lunch. The playground was under construction today and will not be used until the project is complete. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A Description: Based on observation during today's inspection, not all areas were maintained in a safe condition. Evidence: During today's inspection, one classroom with preschool-aged children had accessible blind strings on all windows. Plan of Correction: Staff will be talked to about this.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-J Description: Based on observation during today's inspection, some medications were not locked as required. Evidence: While some medications were stored in a child-proof approved bag, some other medications were stored in a baggie inside an unlocked backpack. Plan of Correction: We will order a lock that staff can operate easily but not meant for children.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-N Description: During today's inspection, a medication was on-site that was no longer authorized. Evidence: A child's medication was authorized by the parent and did not have physician's authorization. The authorization expired 3/18, was not renewed and was still available at the center. Plan of Correction: We will send the medication home this week.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-550-M Description: Based on a review of incident reports today, some required information was missing. Evidence: Of six injury reports reviewed today, there was no documentation of any future action to prevent recurrence of the injury for any of the reports; and 3 reports did not have the time and method that the parent was notified. Plan of Correction: I will go over the with staff how to complete the form and add the "Future Action" statement.
A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.
The online compliance history includes only information after July 1, 2003. In addition, the online compliance history includes information regarding adverse actions that may be the subject of a pending appeal. An adverse action is not final until a provider has exhausted or waived all due process rights. For compliance history prior to July 1, 2003, or information regarding the status of pending adverse actions, please contact the Licensing Inspector listed in the facility's information. The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.
