Standard #: 22VAC40-185-40-J
Description: Based on documentation review and staff interviews, the licnesee did not ensure the injury prevention procedures shall be updated at least annually based on documentation of injuries and a review of the activities and services.

Evidence: The Center Director confirmed there was not updated injury prevention plan available for review.

Plan of Correction: The Center Director will review all injuries and will adjust the plan annually according to the injuries.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-500-B
Description: Based on observation and staff interviews, the licensee did not ensure that all requirements for diapering were followed.

Evidence: The following was reviewed during the inspection and determined inadequate.
1)The diapering area requires a nonabsorbent surface for diapering or changing. For children younger than three years, this surface shall be a changing table or countertop designated for changing.
a) In the 2 1/2 to 3 year old room there are two children (child #2 and child #3) who are two years old and the center staff confirmed they are changed while standing up as there is not a diaper changing table or surface in the classroom.
b) In the Pre-Toddler room the diaper pad has two rips on the top of the diaper pad and therefore it is no longer nonabsorbent.
2) There is not a leakproof covered receptacle for soiled linens in the Pre-Toddler room, 2 1/2 to 3 year old room and the infant room. Center Director confirmed theses items were not in the classrooms.

Plan of Correction: The center director move children who are not completely potty trained to another classroom and replace the diaper changing pad and purchase bins for soiled linens. Children younger than 3 will be changed on diaper table until classroom assignment has been done effective immediately.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-540-A
Description: Based on observation and staff interviews, the licensee did not ensure that on each floor of each building used by children there was a complete first aid kit.

Evidence: The first aid kit on the second floor did not contain triangular bandages.

Plan of Correction: The Center Director will purchase additional triangular bandages today.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-550-M
Description: Based on documentation review and staff interviews, the licensee did not ensure the center shall maintain a written record of children's serious and minor injuries in which entries are made the day of occurrence and include all required information.

Evidence: Ten injury reports were reviewed and 4 did not include any future action to prevent recurrence, 5 did not include the date parent was notified of the injury and 2 did not include the time parent was notified of the injury.

Plan of Correction: Effectively immediately the Center Director will ensure the reports are filled completely.


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.
