Standard #: 22VAC40-185-70-A Description: Based on a review of eight staff records on 11/26/2019, the center did not ensure that one staff's record contained the required information.
Evidence: 1) The licensing inspector observed one reference in the record for Staff #3 (DOH: 6/10/2019). The reference was taken over the telephone, but there was no documentation of the results of the call. There was no documentation that a second reference was obtained for Staff #3 prior to the date of hire. Each staff record shall include documentation that two or more references as to character and reputation as well as competency were checked before employment or volunteering. If a reference check is taken over the phone, documentation shall include dates of contact, names of persons contacted, the firms contacted, results, and signature of person making call.
Plan of Correction: Per the Center: "Obtained reference from employee via email. I will make sure the reference form is complete with date."

Evidence: 1) The fingerprint background check results in the record for Staff #1, hired on 12/29/2014, were dated 11/28/2018. 2) During interview, a member of management confirmed Staff #1 did not submit to fingerprinting by the September 30, 2018 deadline for employees hired prior to January 22, 2018.

The record did not contain documentation of a requested founded complaint of child abuse from the state the staff member indicated she had lived in within the last five years. 2) During interview, a member of management stated that an out-of-state request for founded complaints of child abuse was not completed for Staff #6.

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.
