The last documented dates for shelter-in-place practice drills were 12/22/2017 and 09/05/2017. 2. Staff verified that those were the last documented dates for a shelter-in-place drill.

Plan of Correction: The current program director started in November 2018 and did not realize that shelter-in-place drills had not occurred for 2018. Dates have been placed on the calendar to ensure that the shelter-in-place drills occur this year.

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.
