Lunch today consisted of diced chicken, whole grain biscuit, corn, coleslaw, and milk. All areas used for child care were inspected. The facility has age appropriate materials and supplies. The following required information was posted; the License, most recent inspection notice, emergency numbers, evacuation map/procedures, daily schedules, menu, and various parent information. The first aid kits and non-medical emergency supplies were inspected and found complete. The inspector interacted with staff and children in care. Five staff records and five children's records were reviewed. Per administration, there is no medication being administered at this time. There are staff on site with current First Aid, CPR, MAT and DHO training. The most recent evacuation drill was documented on 7/16/19. The most recent shelter-in-place drill was documented on 2/27/19. If you have questions regarding this inspection, please contact the licensing inspector at 804-662-9092.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-500-B Description: Based on observation, the center did not ensure that 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. Evidence: The licensing inspector observed the trash can used for diaper disposal in the two year old class room had a lid with a swinging opening for disposal. Plan of Correction: Administration will purchase a foot operated trash can for the two year old classroom.
Standard #: 63.2(17)-1720.1-B-2 Description: Based on review of five staff records, the center did not obtain results of a national fingerprint-based criminal history record check for one staff prior to staff beginning employment. Evidence: 1. The licensing inspector observed Staff #2 was hired on 6/3/19. The record for Staff #2 contained a statement of eligibility based on a national fingerprint-based criminal history record dated 6/27/19. As of 01/22/2018, a statement of eligibility based on a national fingerprint-based criminal history record check is required to be obtained prior to staff working in the facility. Plan of Correction: Administration will ensure timeframes are met for background check requirements in the future.
A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.
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. The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.
