Plan of Correction: Hiring Managers have been trained on the new

now understand the difference between the out
of state criminal background search that was
completed on staff 3 versus the out of state sex
offender background check that is now required.
Hiring Managers were also instructed that even
though a Virginia Sex Offender search was
completed on staff 3, that an out of state Sex
Offender search is still required for individuals
who live outside the state within the past 5 years.
An out of state sex offender background check
was requested from the agency for staff 3.

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.
