Violations:
Standard #: 8VAC20-780-160-A
Description: Based on records review, the center failed to ensure that each staff member shall submit documentation of a negative tuberculosis screening at the time of employment and prior to coming into contact with children.

Standard #: 8VAC20-780-40-E
Description: Based on interviews, and documentation review, the center failed to follow it's own policies and procedures. Evidence: Interviews with staff #1, staff #2, and staff #3 revealed that on June 8th child #1, age 21 months, was found inside the building while the rest of the class and teachers were outside. Staff #1 and staff #2 revealed that the "name to face attendance check" was not completed upon the transition outside to the playground and they did not conduct a name to face check until approximately 30 minutes after they arrived outside, when they discovered that child #1 was missing. Documentation review revealed that staff #2 did not sign out of the CSR when she left the classroom to take the trash out. The policy titled "Child Supervision Record (CSR)" states "perform name-to-face checks as children cross the threshold from the space they're in to the new location. For example, when leaving the classroom to go to the playground, complete name-to-face before crossing the threshold out of the classroom and again after crossing the threshold into the playground. Make sure you actually look at each child's face and verify they're with you instead of just counting children." Under Teacher/Staff Attendance the policy states "when teachers leave the classroom for breaks, lunch, or at the end of their shift, they must sign out on the CSR by recording the time in the "out" column in the teacher/staff attendance section."

Plan of Correction: Not available online. Contact Inspector for more information.
