Current Inspector: Chris Robinson (757) 404-2322

Inspection Date: Aug. 21, 2020

Complaint Related: No

Areas Reviewed:

This inspection was conducted by licensing staff using an alternate remote protocol, necessary due to a state of emergency health pandemic declared by the Governor of Virginia.

A subsidy complaint inspection was initiated on 8/21/20 and concluded on 9/29/20. A subsidy complaint was received by the department on 8/12/20 regarding allegations in the areas of food allergy. The Program Administrator was contacted by telephone to conduct the investigation. The inspector emailed the Program Administrator a list of documentation required to complete the investigation. The evidence gathered during the investigation supported the allegation of non-compliance with subsidy regulations, and violations were issued. Any violations not related to the complaint, but identified during the course of the investigation can be found on the violation notice.

Standard #: 22VAC40-665-790-F
Description: Based on interviews and a review of documentation, it was determined that the vendor did not ensure that a child with a diagnosed food allergy shall not be served any food identified in their written allergy care plan.

1. On August 8, 2020, child #1 was given milk by staff #1 even though child #1 has a diagnosed allergy to milk.
2. Staff #2 (Program Administrator) confirmed that staff #1 gave child #1 milk even though child #1 has a diagnosed allergy to milk.

Plan of Correction: The facility responded: The program director will ensure that all staff are knowledgeable of any known allergies of children in care including drop-in/visiting children. Staff will be verbally reminded daily by the cook of children with allergies in their classrooms during meal times. Management will be responsible for providing staff with allergy information about new children enrolled/visiting their classroom.


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.
