Standard #: 8VAC20-780-40-M
Description: Based on record review, observation, and interview, the center failed to maintain in a way that is accessible to all staff who work with children, a current, dated, written list of all children's allergies, sensitivities, and dietary restrictions.
Evidence: The allergy list that was posted in the classroom was dated 2021-2022. There were no names listed on the allergy list. The record for child #1, date of enrollment 10/18/23, indicated a food sensitivity. The record for child #4, date of enrollment 08/22/23, indicated a food allergy. The record for child #6 indicated a food preference. Child #1, child #4, and child #6 were not listed on the allergy list posted in the classroom. Interview with staff # 1 confirmed that the allergy list was not current and did not list child #1, child #4, or child #6.

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

Description: Based on observation, the center failed to ensure that each restroom area provided for children shall be equipped with soap, toilet paper, and disposable towels or an air dryer within reach of children.
Evidence: Restroom #1 and restroom #2 located in the classroom did not contain soap, toilet paper, or paper towels. Several children were observed entering the restrooms for use.

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.
