An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted on 9/15/16 from 1:15pm - 2:30pm. At the time of entrance there were three children ages nine months old to three years old (10 points) in care with one caregiver. A tour of the home was conducted and children were observed during rest period. Records were reviewed for three children, one caregiver, and one household member. There is no medication at the family day home. Emergency plan and emergency supplies were reviewed. Areas of non-compliance are identified on the violation notice, and were discussed during the exit interview. Please complete the ?plan of correction? and ?date to be corrected? for each violation cited on the violation notice and return it to me within 10 calendar days from today. You will need to specify how the deficient practice will be or has been corrected. Just writing the word ?corrected? is not acceptable. Your plan of correction must contain: 1) steps to correct the noncompliance with the standard(s), 2) measures to prevent the noncompliance from occurring again; and 3) person(s) responsible for implementing each step and/or monitoring any preventive measure(s).

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-690-E
Description: Based on an observation of the diapering process, it was determined that the facility did not ensure that disposable diapers are disposed of in a leak-proof or plastic-lined storage system that is either foot operated or used in such a way that neither the staff member's hand nor the soiled diaper touches an exterior surface of the storage system during disposal. Evidence: 1. Licensing Inspector observed caregiver #1 changing the diaper for child #1. 2. Upon completion of the diaper changing process, caregiver #1 placed the diaper in a plastic bag, and then lifted the lid of the trash can with her hand, and placed the diaper in the trash can. 3. Caregiver #1 confirmed the disposable diaper for child #1 was not disposed of without her hand touching the trash can. She stated that she had removed the batteries from the trash can earlier in the day in order to disable it, so the children could not open the lid and throw toys in the trash.

Plan of Correction: Being that I have very busy toddlers who can?t help themselves from playing with the sensor that opens the trash, and enjoy throwing toys in the trash, I am going to change my trash been to one that I have to use my feet and step on it to open the trash, this avoids any possible incidents on my end, and eliminates the toddlers curiosity. Steps 1 : Purchase a New Trash with foot pedal for daycare by Saturday September 24th Step 2: by changing the trash to one that does not have a automatic sensor the need to remove the batteries will be eliminated


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.

Virginia Quality is a voluntary quality rating and improvement system for early care and education facilities serving children ages birth through pre-K. Eligible child care facilities must be fully licensed, licensed exempt and a VDSS subsidy vendor, or a voluntary registered day home and a VDSS subsidy vendor. Only programs enrolled in Virginia Quality will display a rating. Virginia Quality contact information for your region is available at the following link Regional Contacts.
