Comments:
A complaint investigation was conducted today regarding physical abuse of a 3-year old and a 5-year old child. Interviews were conducted, and documentation was reviewed. There was not a preponderance of evidence to support the allegation regarding physical abuse and the complaint was deemed invalid. However, two non-related violations were found and are identified in the Violation Notice. If you have any questions regarding this inspection, please contact the Licensing Inspector, Anansa Archer-Hicks at (703) 268-3295 or anansa.archer-hicks@dss.virginia.gov.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A
Complaint related: No
Description: Based on record review, 1 of 2 children's records did not contain all of the required information. Evidence: Child #2's (start date: 9/4/2018) record did not contain documentation of a complete address for either of the two required emergency contact persons.

Plan of Correction: For currently enrolled children, we will make sure to request that information before they start.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B
Complaint related: No
Description: Based on observation, hazardous substances were not kept in a locked place using a safe locking method that prevents access by children. Evidence: In the Rockets classroom (children ages 3-5 years), a container of lysol wipes and hand sanitzer was sitting on top of the teacher cabinet.

Plan of Correction: It was corrected today, and we will send a memo to the staff to remind them that all chemicals need to be locked.

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.
