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 6/8/21 and concluded on 6/14/21. The director was contacted by telephone to initiate the inspection. There were no children present as the center is not currently operating due to COVID-19. The inspector emailed the director a list of items required to complete the inspection. The Inspector reviewed two staff records and two agent records submitted by the facility to ensure documentation was complete. Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the facility.

Standard #: 22VAC40-191-40-D-1-A Description: Based on review of documentation and interview, the center did not obtain a sworn statement or affirmation from agents at the time of beginning service or the results of a central registry check within 30 days of service. Evidence: 1. The sworn statement submitted for Agent A was dated 6/9/21; Agent A began service on 5/11/21. There are no central registry check results on record for Agent A. 2. The sworn statement submitted for Agent B was dated 6/11/21; Agent B began service on 12/10/2009. There are no central registry check results on record for Agent B. Plan of Correction: We were not aware that these were required for agents.
