Thank you for the time and assistance with the unannounced focused monitoring inspection that was conducted on September 24, 2019 from 2:55 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. The inspection was a follow-up to violations cited during a complaint inspection which began on April 23, 2019. There were 76 children present in seven classrooms and in the care of 12 staff members with three additional staff members available to assist if necessary. One staff member was interviewed and the medications and mediation paperwork were reviewed for three children. The exception to compliance was noted on the violation notice and the risk rating was noted on the supplemental page.

Please contact your licensing inspector, Diann Reed, if you have questions concerning this inspection, the licensing standards, and/or if I may be of assistance to you (540) 280-0742.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-C
Description: Based on review of three medications and the corresponding paperwork, there was a long-term medication on-site with an expired physician's authorization.

Evidence:
1. The written physician's authorization allowing the center to administer medication to Child C was valid from 07/09/2019 through 09/03/2019. The authorization had expired and the medication was on-site.
2. Staff Member A confirmed the physician's authorization had expired.

Plan of Correction: The staff will speak with the parent of the child as soon as possible and ensure that either the medication is taken home or an updated physician's authorization form is obtained.

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.
