Inspection Date: Oct. 22, 2020
Complaint Related: Yes
- Areas Reviewed:
A complaint investigation was conducted in response to an allegation of inappropriate behavior management. Interviews confirmed the allegation.
An exit review was conducted with the program director prior to closure of the investigation.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-400-A Complaint related: No Description: Based upon interviews, the facility has not ensured that in order to promote each child's physical, intellectual, emotional, and social well-being and growth, staff interact with the child to provide needed help, comfort and support that encourages decision making and promotes ways of getting along.
Interviews confirmed that in response to three year old child 1's throwing a shoe at staff 1, staff 1 threw the child's shoe into the trash receptacle.
Plan of Correction: The facility responded with the following:
Staff # 1 is a long time staff member who has exhibited patience and devotion to the children in her care.
On this particular day Child # 1 threw a shoe at Staff # 1 for no apparent reason hitting the staff member.
Staff # 1 placed the shoe in a near by trash receptacle that had no other contents in it as a way of showing the child that the throwing of shoes at any person was inappropriate.
After the Center Director, the Parents and Staff # 1 had a meeting, Staff # 1 acknowledges that her actions could have been viewed as inappropriate and she has been retrained in appropriate actions.
The Center has confidence in Staff # 1 and is certain that no similar incident will take place again.
As always we thank our Licensing Specialist for her time.
