The licensing inspector conducted an unannounced monitoring inspection, at which play groups, outdoor time, activities, music, personal hygiene, lunch time, and rest time were observed. Children were observed; and staff and children files and other documentation were reviewed. Fifty-seven (57) children, aged 2 months-4 years, were found to be in care with 10 staff, kitchen staff, and administrative staff. Previous violations were reviewed, and had been corrected. There were 7 violations, in 6 different areas, of the standards cited during this inspection. Please contact me if you need further assistance. Thank you for your cooperation.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-240-D-4
Description: Based on review of documentation and consultation with staff the facility to maintain compliance with this standard as required relating to medication administration . Evidence: There are only 2 staff currently trained in MAT. Daily between 4:15pm-5pm there is no staff on site who is trained in MAT, and there is a child present during that time who has an emergency medication (albuterol) that is administered frequently, and was administered during the inspection.

Plan of Correction: We are working towards getting more staff MAT trained. Schedules will be adjusted to accommodate this if at all possible until more staff become certified. Also other certified staff will be used, from other locations, to fill the void in the interim to ensure compliance.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observations the facility failed to maintian complaince with this standrd as required relating to cleanliness of the air return vents. Evidence: In both 2 year old classes the wall vents were dirty with dust build up, and had debris visible behind the vent in the duct as well.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-350-F
Description: Based on observations and review of documentation the facility failed to maintain compliance with this standard as required relating to moving up of children and corresponding documentation. Evidence: Child #6, who is not yet 2, was in the 2 year old classroom with the 1 staff to 8 children ratio during this inspection (11/7/18), on 11/5/18, and on 11/6/18. There was no documentation of the required early move-up forms/assessment in the file or available as required. There were 7 children in care with 1 staff in this classroom during the inspection. The required ratio would have been 1 staff to 5 children due to the age of child #6, and lack of required documentation to be in that classroom.

Plan of Correction: The required forms and assessments will be completed so that hte child may be in the 2 year old class moving forward. In the future, this will be obtained for any child who will need to move up a bit early for developmental reasons.

When the LI was in the class room again, the children were coming back inside from outdoor play, and the teacher then placed the liner in the can. The second 2 year old classroom had a lined foot pedaled diaper disposal can, but the foot pedal when pressed did not open the lid as required.

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.
