Comments:
The Licensing Inspector conducted an unannounced complaint inspection in response to a complaint that was received by the licensing office on March 9, 2020. Interviews were conducted with staff relating to the allegations of medication administration. The center's medication policy and staff medication certifications were reviewed. Also, the child's record, medication, and medication authorization form was reviewed. The school menu and the child's special menu was observed posted in the classroom along with a separate storage cabinet for the child's snacks brought from home. Warnings about the child's allergy was posted in the classroom as well as an action plan. The information gathered during this investigation supports the allegations, so the complaint is determined to be valid. If you have any questions you may contact me at Margaret.allworth@dss.virginia.gov or 703-209-3521.
