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 renewal inspection was initiated on 4/20/2021 and concluded on 4/20/2021. The director was contacted by video call to initiate the inspection. There were 30 children present and 5 staff. The inspector emailed the director a list of items required to complete the inspection. The Inspector reviewed 3 children?s records and 4 staff records submitted by the facility to ensure documentation was complete.
Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance with an applicable standard or law and a violation was documented on the violation notice issued to the facility.
The Licensing Inspector has reviewed with the provider COVID-19 Essential Guidance for Child Care programs.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-140-A Description: Based on record review, the center did not ensure one of three children's records contained documentation of a physical examination by or under the direction of a physician before the child's attendance or within one month after attendance.
The record of child #1 (start date: 8/21/20) did not have documentation of the child's physical examination.
Plan of Correction: The plan of action to correct the issue of documentation of physical examinations, the parent enrollment checklist will be revised to include those certain documentations that are mandatory prior to or on the start date of daycare. The other timeframes for other documents will also be included on the revised form. If a parent does not comply with the timeframes of documents, I will then contact them and also contact department of social services licensing inspector, Kandra Brown for further instructions.
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A Description: Based on record review, the center did not ensure three of three children's records contained all of the required information.
1. The record of child #1 (start date: 8/21/20) did not have documentation of the following: one of the two required emergency contact's name, address and phone number.
2. The record of child #2 (start date: 4/6/2021) did not have documentation of two emergency contact addresses and documentation of viewing proof of the child's identity and age.
3. The record of child #3 (start date: 2/8/2021) did not have documentation of viewing proof of the child's identity and age.
Plan of Correction: 1. To prevent child records from not having complete emergency contact information, a new form will be created to include a section for an address, (as the previous form did not have) and telephone number. All parents will be required to fill out the form, sign, date and the documentation will be added to the children's file.
2. The plan of action to correct the issue of proof of child's identity and age, the parent enrollment checklist will also be revised to include those certain documentations are mandatory prior to or on the start date of daycare. The other timeframes for other documents will also be included on the revised form.
Standard #: 22VAC40-191-60-B Description: Based on staff record review, the center did not ensure one of three staff records contained documentation of a completed sworn statement or affirmation prior to employment.
The record of staff #1 (start date: 3/01/21) did not have documentation of a completed sworn statement or affirmation.
Plan of Correction: To prevent future reoccurrences of staff records not containing sworn statements on start date, the document will be required to be completed before employees can start working. There will be a revised employee hire checklist with that specific detail.
Standard #: 22VAC40-191-60-C-2 Description: Based on staff record review, the center did not ensure one of three staff records contained documentation of central registry findings within 30 days of employment.
1. The record of staff #1 (start date 3/1/21) did not have documentation of central registry findings.
2. The center representative stated that the center mailed the central registry form on 3/19/2021 and has not heard back from the OBI department.
Plan of Correction: To prevent delays of processing time for central registries, we will mail it off sooner than previously. In the event that it does not come back within the 30-day time period, I will then contact them and also contact department of social services licensing inspector, Kandra Brown for further instructions.
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.
