Technical Assistance:
We discussed the requirements for background checks and medication authorizations. The risk assessments for violations were provided.

We reviewed requirements for staff records, emergency drill documentation, diapering procedures, and playground maintenance.

Comments:
Thank you for your assistance during today's unannounced monitoring inspection conducted from 10:55 AM to 5:00 PM. Today, there were one-hundred and fifteen children, ages infancy through five years with nineteen staff. It was reported that nineteen school-age children received supervision before school. Twenty-nine school age children attended after school. I viewed program activities, staffing, supervision, interactions with children, meals/snacks, posted information, equipment, infant care and records, diapering procedures, medication, emergency supplies and drill records, agency inspection reports, ten records for children, ten staff records, staff qualifications, staff training, indoor and outdoor areas. The school age/prek playground was not inspected due to snow. A variety of age appropriate toys and equipment were accessible for each age group. The teachers have implemented planned activities based on themes such as winter and transportation. Group times have included music, movement and stories.

Let me know if you need any assistance. 540/430-9259

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-D
Description: Based on a review of medication for children, related records and an interview with administrative staff, the center failed to ensure that the medication authorization for all current medication has been available to staff. Evidence: The authorization forms for two types of medication for child 2M only contained written authorizations from a physician. The section for a parent's signature was left blank on the forms. Administrative staff confirmed that medication authorization forms containing a parent's signature were not present at the center.

Plan of Correction: Administrative staff will request and obtain written parent authorizations for the two types of medication present for child 2M. The staff who accept medication forms from parents will make sure the required parent authorizations are submitted to the center and available to staff. Both parent and physician authorizations will be obtained for long term medication.

Standard #: 63.2(17)-1720.1-B-3
Description: Based on a review of ten records for staff, and an interview with administrative staff, the center failed to obtain the results of a search of the child abuse and neglect registry, or equivalent registry, maintained by another state in which one staff member has resided in the preceding five years. Evidence: Staff member 3 began work for this center October 24, 2019. According to information submitted at the time of initial employment, another state was resided in during the previous five years. There was only a copy of the request form for the child abuse registry finding for that state and documentation that the request was sent December 10, 2019. Administrative staff confirmed that the results were not obtained within forty-five days and the initial request form completed by staff member 3 was not located.

Plan of Correction: Administrative staff immediately called the out-of-state agency and confirmed that the request for the background check was received and will be processed. In the future, administrative staff will maintain a checklist for tracking background check requests and the dates of the findings. Administrative staff will document contacts with agencies when inquiries are made regarding processed results.
