Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-A
Description: Based on interview and a review of documentation, it was determined that the center failed to ensure care, protection and guidance of children in care.
Evidence:

1. Based on interviews, it was determined that Staff A picked up Child A, B and C, from a local middle school on 2/21/20 at approximately 3:10 pm in the center?s van. Staff A asked the 3 children to put on their seat belts but failed to follow the center?s procedure of doing a safety check by walking the isle of the van to verify seat belts were on. Consequently, none of the three children put on their seat belts. Interviews further revealed that staff A routinely would not do the safety checks by walking the length of the van to verify seat belts were fastened. Consequently these three children would routinely not wear their seat belts when transported by staff A. The van ride from the school to the center is approximately a 10 to 15 minute drive.
2. After turning off Wellington Road and onto Dean Park Lane (entrance to the center) staff A looked into the rear view mirror and realized a child(ren) were not wearing their seat belts and as a result, started swerving and jerking the van back and forth and then slammed on the breaks, this resulted in child A falling out of their seat and hitting their head on the metal window frame.
3. Staff A confirmed that child A had complained of hitting their head but the staff failed to check the child's head for potential injury and only after dropping the child off and leaving to do another pick did Staff A call the front desk 1 to 2 minutes later and ask them to check on the child.
4. Interviews with the schoolagers revealed that some of them were scared and afraid by Staff A?s swerving and jerking and slamming on the breaks.
