Comments:
The licensing inspector conducted an unannounced renewal inspection, at which play groups, breakfast time, outdoor time, group time, music time, story time, personal hygiene, activities, lunch time, and rest time were observed. Children were observed; and staff and children files and other documentation were reviewed. Seventy-five (75) children, aged 3 months-5 years, were found to be in care with 13 staff, kitchen staff, and numerous administrative staff. Previous violations were reviewed, and had been corrected. Please contact me if you need further assistance. Thank you for your cooperation. This inspection began at 9:15am and concluded at 2pm.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-500-B
Description: Based on observations in the classrooms the facility failed to maintain compliance with this standard regarding an appropriate changing pad. Evidence: In the 2 year old classroom the diaper pad had several tears in the waterproof cover. The tears in the pad no longer allowed the pad to be nonabsorbent as required.

Plan of Correction: The diaper pad will immediately be replaced with a new one. Staff will be reminded to inform administration when the pads become worn or are no longer meeting requirements.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-A
Description: Based on review of medications the facility failed to maintain compliance with this standard as required relating to expired medication and expired permission forms. Evidence: 1. The authorization to administer medication to child F had expired as of 1/20/19; the medication was present for administration at the time of inspection. 2. The authorization to administer medication to child K had expired as of 10/2018; the medication was present for administration at the time of inspection. 3. The medication for child G and H had expired as of 12/2018; the medication was present for administration at the time of inspection with a current authorization to administer form.

Plan of Correction: The parents were informed during the inspection of the need for new authorization to administer forms and the need to replace the expired medications. Administration will continue to verify that medication and the required documentation are compliant monthly.

Disclaimer:

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.
