Thank you for your assistance during this unannounced inspection. This inspection was initiated by an on-line complaint that was received in the Valley Licensing Office on June 18, 2019 regarding the allegation of the center keeping the subsidy VA-ECC cards of parents. The information gathered during this complaint supports the allegation and the complaint is determined to be valid. Please complete the plan of correction and return to the licensing inspector within five business days. If you have any questions, please contact me at 540-430-9256,

Standard #: 22VAC40-665-500-A
Description: Based on observation and staff interview, the center failed to ensure compliance with the terms of the vendor agreement. Evidence: 1. Six subsidy VA-ECC cards were found in a cup inside a white cabinet. 2. Staff #1 confirmed the cards were in the cup inside the white cabinet.

Plan of Correction: Spoke with parents letting them know they can not leave their cards at the center. They have their cards.

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.
