Staff #1 handed the bottle to Staff #2 to feed Child #1. Staff #2 verified that the bottle was Child #'1's before feeding the child. When Staff #3 was leaving for break she noticed the ziplock bag of breastmilk labeled with Child #2's name on the counter, and a pouch with Child #2's name in the trashcan. Staff #3 also stated that Child #1 breastmilk was still in the refrigerator and freezer. Staff #2 stated that Child #2's breastmilk had been brought into school that day in bottles, and that none of the reserve breastmilk was needed. Staff #1 confirmed that she did not look at the name on the ziplock bag when preparing the bottle for Child #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.
