An unannounced investigation was initiated on 2/22/2024 in response to a self-report that was received by the licensing department on 2/12/2024 regarding allegations in the areas of injury reporting, forbidden action, and care and protection. The inspection was initiated on 2/22/2024 and completed on 3/14/2024. On 2/12/2024, the inspector was on site from approximately 10:26 am to 1:20 pm. Interviews with staff were completed, observations were made in the center, and documentation was reviewed. An additional interview was conducted remotely. The preponderance of the evidence gathered during the investigation supports part of the allegation; therefore, the self-report is determined to be valid. See the violation notice for more details.

If you have any questions about this inspection, please contact the licensing inspector at (540) 430-0384.

The areas of the child?s injuries were consistent with fingernail marks and were located in the areas where staff #1?s hands were placed as well as where staff #1?s areas of focus were during her examinations. The parents of child #1 discovered the injuries and reported that child #1 received medical attention.

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.
