An unannounced, mandated monitoring inspection was conducted today. The inspector arrived at 11:00 AM and departed at 2:25 PM. Eighty-three children were in care with ten staff.

Plan of Correction: Staff will be reminded to make sure all chemicals are kept in a locked area.
Standard #: 63.2(17)-1721.1-B-2 Description: Based upon review of five staff records, the facility has not ensured that all employees have undergone a background check in accordance with 63.2-1716 requiring nationwide fingerprinting.

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.
