Ten child records and ten staff records were reviewed.

The record for S6, employed 11/08/2022 did not have results of a central registry search within 30 days of employment. The results of the central registry search for S6 are dated 12/13/2022.

Plan of Correction: Central Registry reports will be dated with the date of request.

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.
