Encouraged site supervisor to have a discussion with parents regarding one child in particular who requires multiple medications due to a health condition, and obtaining more thorough instructions on which medications to administer when.
Today an unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted starting at 2:15pm and ended at 4:00pm. There were 50 children present today with 4 staff. Children were observed arriving from school, greeting staff, playing chess, coloring, doing homework and playing on the playground. 11 medications with authorizations were reviewed. Medication Administration Training (MAT) and First Aid/CPR certifications were checked today. Staff records are reviewed annually in the administrative office.

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.
