The Licensing Inspector has reviewed with the provider COVID-19 Essential Guidance for Child Care programs.
A monitoring inspection during the conditional licensure period for this site was initiated and concluded on 11/13/2020. The area manager was contacted by telephone to initiate the inspection. There were 7 children present and 2 staff. The inspector emailed the area manager a list of items required to complete the inspection. The Inspector reviewed 3 children?s records and 3 staff records submitted by the facility to ensure documentation was complete.
Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance(s) with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the facility.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A Description: Based on a review of records, the licensee failed to ensure that each enrolled child's record contained the name, address, and phone number of two designated people to call in an emergency if a parent cannot be reached.
Three children's records were reviewed. The records for child #1 and child #2 did not contain addresses for the two emergency contacts listed. The administrator confirmed that this information was not contained in the records for child #1 and child #2 at the time of the inspeciton.
Plan of Correction: The emergency contact addresses were obtained and added to the records for child #1 and child #2 later the same day as the inspection and a copy forwarded to the inspector for verification.
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.
