Comments:
The inspector conducted an unannounced complaint investigation on 01/24/2020 from 2:40 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. concerning a complaint received in this office 01/21/2020 concerning emergency preparedness. Interviews were conducted with staff and documentation was reviewed. The preponderance of evidence gathered during the investigation supports the allegations, so the complaint is determined to be substantiated. Two violations concerning ratios not being met in the classrooms were not reported but found during the inspection so violations are cited for being out of ratio. An intensive plan of correction meeting has been scheduled at the Western Regional Dept of Social Services office for February 11, at 10:00. Please contact your inspector at 276-698-9981 with any questions.
