Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-A
Description: Based on review of documentation, the center failed to obtain parental authorization to administer for prescription medication. Evidence: An administration log for Child #3 indicated a ProAir inhaler had been administered on 4/25/19, 4/29/19, 5/6/19, 5/7/19 and 5/13/19. There was no documentation from the parent to administer the medications on these dates. A short term authorization was dated 3/27/2019 and expired after 10 working days.

Plan of Correction: The permission form may have been misplaced in the child's classroom. The medication will be sent home this evening. In the future, if the medication is required permission forms will be on file.
