Current Inspector: Tiffany Jones (757) 403-3045

Inspection Date:

Complaint Related: No

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

Evidence: On October 1, 2020, an independent contractor assisting at the center gave Child #1 (four years old), who has a diagnosed food allergy, a food identified in the child's written allergy care plan. Child #1 was also wearing an allergy alert bracelet.

Plan of Correction: Youth programs and its staff aim to ensure the best care, protection and guidance for everyone involved in their programs. Immediately following the care of the child, the contractual vendor was removed from the program. Youth programs will continue to follow our policy of "no food sharing". Youth programs will also continue to make the list of known food allergies and dietary restrictions of participants known to all staff. We will also continue to wristband participants daily as an additional indicator of known allergies.


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.
