Standard #: 22VAC40-185-70-A
Description: Based on the inspection of administrative records, the required references were not obtained. Evidence: During the inspection of five staff records, it was discovered staff #3 who was rehired in May 2018 did not have two references in record.

Plan of Correction: Per director: I will obtain and contact the two references given and update the record.

A statement that the center will notify the parent when the child becomes ill and that the parent will arrange to have the child picked up as soon as possible if so requested by the center; and 2. A statement that the parent will inform the center within 24 hours or the next business day after his child or any member of the immediate household has developed any reportable communicable disease, as defined by the State Board of Health, except for life threatening diseases which must be reported immediately.

Plan of Correction: Per director: I will add these statements to the parent agreement and have parents to sign the form.

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.
