Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-A
Description: Based on observation and inspection of the facility, the staff members did not ensure that when staff are supervising children, they shall always ensure their care, protection, and guidance. Evidence: An infant was observed sitting in a bouncy chair on the floor and the infant straps had not been secured.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-A
Description: Based on review, the licensee did not ensure that prescription medication was given according to the center's written medication policy and only with written authorization from the parent. Evidence: Staff # 6 confirmed administering Prescription Medication #1 to Child #2 but the center had not obtained written authorization from the parent. The center's medication policy states that "no prescription diaper rash cream/ointment will be allowed".

Plan of Correction: The employee was the grandmother of the child and had permission from the parents to administer the medication. As of today we did receive written authorization from both parents but at no time in the future will any prescription medication be administered.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-G
Description: Based on observation and inspection of the facility, the licensee did not ensure that the center may administer prescription medication that would normally be administered by a parent or guardian to a child provided all requirements were met. Evidence: The owner confirmed that there was no documentation available to review that verified Staff #6 had current Medication Administration Training (MAT). Staff #6 acknowledged administering Prescription Medication #1 to Child #2.

Plan of Correction: The employee was the grandmother of the child and had permission from the parents to administer the medication. As of today we did receive written authorization from both parents but at no time in the future will any prescription medication be administered. The employee will be reprimanded.

Description: Based on observation and inspection of the facility, the licensee did not ensure that medication, except for those prescriptions designated otherwise by written physician's orders, including refrigerated medication and staff's personal medication, shall be kept in a locked place using a safe locking method that prevents access by children. Evidence: Staff #6 confirmed that Prescription Medication #1 was observed in an unlocked drawer of the lower cabinets in the Girls Restroom. (Picture Exhibit E).

Plan of Correction: There will be no prescription medicine on site and the medication was discarded immediately.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-L
Description: Based on observation and staff interview, the licensee did not ensure that centers shall keep a record of medication given to children which contained all required information documented. Evidence: The owner confirmed that there was not a record of medication given to Child #2 which documented the following: the child to whom medication was administered; amount and type of medication administered to the child; the day and time the medication was administered to the child; staff member administering the medication; any adverse reactions; and any medication error.

Plan of Correction: The employee was the grandmother of the child and had permission from the parents to administer the medication. As of today we did receive written authorization from both parents but at no time in the future will any prescription medication be administered. The employee will be reprimanded.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-520-B

Standard #: 63.2(17)-1720.1-B-2
Description: Based on record review, in one of five staff records reviewed, the licensee did not ensure that staff submit to fingerprinting and obtain results. Evidence: The owner confirmed that Staff #1 (date of hire 10/30/17) had not completed a fingerprint check.

Plan of Correction: Staff #1 had completed the criminal background check prior to new standards being issued and the director was under the impression that because it was still in date for her three years that it was still good and she would do her fingerprint before her three year expiration date. So now staff member will be getting fingerprinted within one week to meet the new standards.
