Technical Assistance:
The Annual Health and Safety Update Training for Child Care Staff was discussed with the vendor during the inspection.

Comments:
A Subsidy Health and Safety inspection was conducted on 12/19/19 from 12:15pm until 1:45pm to review supplemental health and safety requirements. At the time of entrance, there were 7 children in care with 4 staff. A sample of 5 children's records and 4 staff records were reviewed. Children were observed resting quietly during nap time. Restroom and hand washing procedures were also observed. First aid and emergency supplies, the emergency preparedness plan, transportation, documentation of emergency practice drills and center postings were reviewed. The vendor stated that medication is not currently administered to children in care. A licensing inspection was also conducted on this date; the two inspections combined cover all subsidy health and safety requirements. Only subsidy requirements that are not covered in licensing standards are reviewed during this supplemental inspection. Violations were found during the supplemental subsidy health and safety inspection requirements and are identified on the violation notice.

The documentation shall have been completed within the last 30 calendar days of the date of employment and be signed by a physician, physician's designee, or an official of the local health department.

Evidence:

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.
