Standard #: 22VAC40-185-500-B Description: Based on observation and interview on 06/05/2019, the center did not ensure diapers are disposed of in a system that is not hand operated. EVIDENCE: 1) During the inspection, the licensing inspector observed the trash can used for diapering in the Twos A room is hand operated. The licensing inspector observed a staff member using her hands to open the diapering trash can to dispose of a soiled diaper. 2) In the Infant B room, the licensing inspector observed the trash can used for diapering is inoperable. Disposable diapers shall be disposed in a leakproof or plastic-lined storage system that is either foot operated or used in such a way that neither the staff member's hand nor the soiled diaper touches an exterior surface of the storage system during disposal. Plan of Correction: Corrected on site. Per the Center: We will make sure all trash cans in all diaper changing classrooms are operating properly by checking each trash can weeekly.
