Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-140-A
Description: Based on the review of eight children's records, one child did not have documentation of a physical exam. Evidence: During the inspection, the licensing inspector observed the record for Child #5 (enrollment date 07/19/18) did not contain documentation of a physical examination by or under the direction of a physician. Each child is required to submit documentation of a physical exam prior to or within the first 30 days of attending the center.

Plan of Correction: Per director: We have already requested a copy of the physical exam. We will follow-up with the family and begin to ask families to submit a copy of the physical exam prior to the child attending the center.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A
Description: Based on the review of eight children's records, one record did not contain the required information. Evidence: During the inspection, the licensing inspector observed the record for Child #3 (enrollment date 03/29/17) contained the name, address and phone number of one emergency contact. Two emergency contacts along with their information is required for each child enrolled in the center. The record for Child #3 was last reviewed 03/28/17. Information contained in the child's record is required to be reviewed and updated if needed by the parent at least on an annual basis.

Plan of Correction: Per director - We will give the family a form to update and submit the required information.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-500-A
Description: Based on observation, one staff member did not wash her hands after each diaper change. Evidence: During the inspection, the licensing inspector observed a staff member change the diapers of two children in the Twos classroom. After the first diaper change, the staff member proceeded to pick up the next child and begin the diapering process without washing her own hands.

Plan of Correction: Per director - I will retrain the staff and continue to monitor staff to ensure the correct diapering process is being followed.
