The center's transportation policy is for the driver of the bus to check all seats upon exiting the bus to ensure that no child has fallen asleep and remains on the bus. Staff A failed to check all seats upon exiting the bus on 9/27/19. Staff A knew that child A had a history of laying down and falling asleep on the bus but nevertheless the staff did not follow the center's policy and child A was left alone on the bus for approximately 20 minutes.

Plan of Correction: Not available online. Contact Inspector for more information.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A
Description: Based on a review of one child's file, it was determined that one file did not contain all of the required information.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-A
Description: Based on interviews and a review of video footage, it was determined that staff did not always ensure the care, protection and guidance of a child.
Evidence:
On 9/27/19 at approximately 4:10 pm to 4:30 pm staff failed to realized that child A had not disembarked from bus # 6479 with the rest of the 8 schoolagers after arriving at the center from school. Interviews further revealed that staff knew that child A had a history of laying down and napping on the ride back to the center.

Plan of Correction: We have implemented a new bus attendance tracker. This form requires a driver to sign in/out of when a child is picked up at school and when that child disembarks the bus to enter the club. This tracker also requires staff to enter the times in which the child enters and exits the bus. This method will allow a driver to visually check in/out each youth as they are entering and exiting the bus.

We have created two functionally age appropriate spaces for our daycare members. The daycare members will report to their perspective rooms for an additional attendance check once they have un-boarded the bus. If for some reason, a child does not report to their perspective homeroom that staff person will contact the Daycare Director to confirm the whereabouts of the youth. This method will provide an additional attendance check and increased accountability.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-F
Description: Based on interviews and a review of video footage, it was determined that a child under 10 years of age was not always within actual sight and sound supervision of staff.
Evidence:
On 9/27/19, video footage of the front entrance of the center showed staff A arriving at the front entrance in the bus and dropping off 8 schoolagers at approximately 4:07 pm. A staff received the children at the front entrance and staff A drove the bus to the side of the building and parked. Staff A can be observed getting off the bus at approximately 4:10 pm and entering the center. Video footage showed Staff A exiting the center at approximately 4 30 pm and returning to the bus and retrieving child A ( 5 years of age) who had fallen asleep on the bus. The temperature on that day was a high of 82 degrees Fahrenheit.

Plan of Correction: 22VAC40-185-(5)-340-F In addition to the new bus tracker sheet we are also implementing a new policy where an additional staff person will check the busses after a bus run as been completed in the morning and afternoon school bus runs. This method will provide an additional set of eyes to ensure safety for our members. November 21, 2019

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-580-K

Evidence:
On 9/27/19 at approximately 4:10 pm, staff A parked and got off the bus after letting eight children off at the front entrance at the center. Staff A failed to walk the length of the bus and check the seats to ensure that all nine children had gotten off the bus. Child A fell asleep on the bus and remained on the bus alone for approximately 20 minutes.

Plan of Correction: We will retrain staff on club safety policies and emphasis bus safety and protocol. We will also use our newer busses for daily transport that have built in safety mechanisms to ensure further safely for our members.
