There was no documentation on file for a February 2019 practice evacuation drill being completed. 2. Staff verified that there had not be an evacuation drill completed for February 2019.

Plan of Correction: The month slipped away before the administrator realized they had not completed a February 2019 evacuation drill. In the future I will try to plan for earlier in the month so I have room to move the evacuation around if needed.

Standard #: 22VAC40-191-60-C-2
Description: Based on review of staff files, the center failed to ensure that a central registry finding had been completed within 30 days of employment. Evidence: 1. Staff #5's file did not contain a completed central registry background check. Date of hire was 10/10/2018. 2. Staff verified that there was not a completed central registry background check in the file. There has currently been a change in administration and the current administrator was unaware if follow-up with the Office of Background Investigation has been completed inquiring about the background check.

Plan of Correction: The administrator will contact the Office of Background Investigation and research if they received the central registry background check, and if not will immediately send another one out to be completed.

Standard #: 63.2(17)-1721.1-B-2
Description: Based on a review of board member files, the center did not ensure that all board members had fingerprints submitted by 09/30/2018. Evidence: 1.

Plan of Correction: The administration was not aware that board members had to be fingerprinted by 09/30/2018. They are in the process of getting the background checks completed. In the future when a new board member comes on board we will send them for fingerprints within 30 days of taking office.


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.
