63.2 Child Abuse & Neglect
An unannounced complaint inspection was initiated on 7/6/2022 in response to a complaint that was received by the licensing department on 6/29/2022 regarding allegations in the areas of operational responsibilities, supervision of children, and transportation and field trips. The inspection was initiated on 7/6/2022 and completed on 7/11/2022. On 7/6/2022, two inspectors were on site from 1:51 pm to 3:00 pm. Interviews with staff were completed, observations were made in the center, and documentation was reviewed. Additional interviews were conducted remotely.
The preponderance of the evidence gathered during the investigation supports part of the allegation; therefore, the complaint is determined to be valid. In addition to the original complaint, there were also violations found during the inspection regarding background checks. See the violation notice for more details. If you have any questions about this inspection, please contact the licensing inspector at (540) 430-0384.
Please complete the plan of correction and date to be corrected for each violation cited on the violation notice and return it to me within 5 business days from today. You will need to specify how the deficient practice will be or has been corrected. Just writing the word corrected is not acceptable. Your plan of correction must contain: 1) steps to correct the noncompliance with the standard(s), 2) measures to prevent the noncompliance from occurring again; and 3) person(s) responsible for implementing each step and/or monitoring any preventative measures. Please do not use staff names; list staff by positions only.

1. The center?s sunscreen policy states, ?Bundle of Joy will apply sunscreen to children as needed with written permission from parents or guardians? parents are asked to apply the first coat of sunscreen each day before the child is dropped off.? In interview, Staff #1 (DOH: 5/17/2022) reported that sunscreen was not applied to child #1 during the field trip because the sunscreen was accidentally left back at the center during the field trip. Staff #1 acknowledged that the sunscreen would have been reapplied after lunch and before the afternoon outdoor activities if they had access to the sunscreen.
