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 subsidy health and safety inspection was initiated on 06/03/2021 and concluded on 06/10/2021. The director was contacted by telephone to initiate the inspection. There were 65 children present and 12 staff. A licensing inspection was conducted on the same date as the SHSI supplemental inspection. Both inspections combined cover subsidy health and safety regulations. Only subsidy regulations that are not covered in licensing standards are reviewed during this supplemental inspection.
The information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance with subsidy regulations, and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the facility.
Standard #: 22VAC40-665-520-B-11 Description: Based on a review of records and interview, the vendor did not obtain a written allergy care plan for one out of three children with a diagnosed food allergy.
Evidence: 1) A physician letter dated 12/08/20 in the record for Child #6 indicated the child has a diagnosed food allergy, but the record did not contain a written allergy care plan. 2) During interview, a member of management confirmed the center does not have a written allergy care plan for Child #6. A child's record shall include a written allergy care plan for each child with a diagnosed food allergy, to include instructions from a physician regarding the food to which the child is allergic and steps to be taken in the event of a suspected or confirmed allergic reaction.
Plan of Correction: Per the Vendor: "Management has obtained the allergy action plan for the student with the food allergy. Management will ensure that all students that present with an allergy will have an allergy action plan in place."
Standard #: 22VAC40-665-540-A Description: Based on a review of four staff records, the vendor did not ensure two staff were evaluated by a health professional and be issued a statement that the individual is determined to be free of communicable tuberculosis (TB) within the required timeframe.
Evidence: 1) The TB screening in the record for Staff #1, hired on 01/25/2021, was dated 02/06/21. 2) The TB screening in the record for Staff #4, hired on 05/12/21, was dated 03/20/21. Documentation of the screening shall be submitted at the time of employment and prior to coming into contact with children. The documentation shall have been completed within the last 30 calendar days of the date of employment and be signed by a physician, physician's designee, or an official of the local health department.
Plan of Correction: Per the Vendor: "Management will review the requirements for TB testing with any new candidates to ensure that all TB tests are performed within the time frame required by licensing standards and best practice."
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.
