Standard #: 22VAC40-185-40-G
Description: Based on review of 10 children's records and interview, the center did not ensure proof of one child's identity was viewed within the required time frame. Evidence: During the inspection, the licensing inspector observed the record for Child #6 (start date 10/1/18) did not contain documentation of viewing proof of a child's identity. Management stated during the inspection, they were aware that information was not obtained and the child was enrolled by management that is no longer with the center.

Plan of Correction: We had already identified this information was missing from the child's record. We have requested the information from the child's parent. Going forward, we will make sure all required paperwork is obtained and reviewed when a child enrolls at the center.

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.
