Standard #: 8VAC20-780-500-B Complaint related: Yes Description: Based on interviews, center staff did not clean and change a child's diaper immediately when it became wet.
1. On 8/10/2023, Child #1 (2 years old) was not cleaned and changed immediately after their diaper became wet.
2. Staff #2 stated that Staff #1 checked diapers in the morning, but Child #1's diaper was dry. The diaper report sent to the parents through the center's app documented that Child #1 was checked at 9:44am and at 12:44pm, both times it was documented that the child had a dry diaper.
3. During the afternoon, Staff #1 stated that they didn't change/check diapers after naptime because they were taking the children to the playground. Staff #1 stated that when they returned from the playground, they began to check/change diapers, but they did not get to change Child #1's diaper because a parent arrived to pick up their child and they were sidetracked.
4. Once Staff #1 left the center at approximately 4:45pm, the child's diaper was not checked again which resulted in a completely saturated diaper. Child #1 did not have a diaper change from the time the child was dropped off at approximately 8:52am until approximately 5:38pm when the child was picked up from the center.
Plan of Correction: The parent of Child #1 made the FBCC CDC aware CHild #1 had not been changed on 10 August the evening of 10 August.
Staff #1 was interviewed about the mater the morning of 11 August.
Staff #1 recounted the events of 10 August as outlines in the evidence section of the violation notice including that Child #1's diaper although it had been checked at 9:44am and 12:44pm and found to be dry (and not changed) was not checked/changed after resulting in a soaked diaper.
The following plan to avoid future occurrence of the same or similar incidents was developed and put in place 11 August.
Caregivers - teachers will continue to change children's diapers immediately when a child is wet or dirty.
Caregivers - teachers will develop a system to insure children's diapers are checked and changed at scheduled times to eliminate the possibility any child's diaper is not checked AND changed even if/when the diaper is dry and/or clean.
To insure to the best of each caregiver's - teacher's ability each child's health, safety, welfare and well-being this plan will be monitored/reviewed and modified as needed so parents are assured their children's diapers are being changed.
