Four emergency medications were reviewed. The inspector arrived at the center at 1:15 pm and departed at 5:30 pm. The children were observed during nap, during arrival of school-age children, during free time in classrooms, during afternoon snack time, during outside time, and during departures.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-130-A
Description: Based on record review, the center failed to ensure that documentation of immunizations were received prior to the child attending the center. Evidence: 1. The immunization records for children #1, #2, and #5 did not have a documented date (signature of physician or print date) that the record was received before attendance. The documented first date of attendance and the date of the immunization record are as follows: child #1 1/7/19; 1/8/19; child #2 10/29/18; 11/28/18; child #5 12/31/18; 1/2/19.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-F
Description: Based on observation and interview, the center failed to ensure that children under 10 years of age were always within actual sight and sound supervision of staff. Evidence: 1. The inspector went to the upstairs part of the center where the school age children were in care in two different rooms. There were 17 children observed in one room. Five of the children were under 10 years of age (one six year old, one seven year old, two eight year olds, and one nine year old). The staff person was observed physically out of the room and approximately 25 feet away from the classroom door at the other classroom door. The room that the staff person left the children alone and unsupervised had full length walls and no windows; only a door which the children were not in sight with the door open.

Plan of Correction: This was corrected during the inspection. When the inspector arrived at the top of the stairs, the staff person went back into the classroom.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-550-D

There was documentation of one shelter-in-place (tornado) drill for 2018. The director was asked about a second and could not determine that a second drill was practiced for the year 2018.

Plan of Correction: The director will make sure that two shelter-in-place drills are practiced and documented for 2019.
