1. Staff 1 has a hire date of 9/21/20. Staff 1 indicated on her sworn statement or affirmation that she has resided in the state of Georgia within the past five years. There is no documentation that a request for an out of state central registry check was sent to Georgia for staff 1.

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.
