Technical Assistance:
Today we discussed emergency evacuation drills.

An unannounced renewal inspection was conducted today from 1pm through 2:45pm. There were six children in care and two resident children. The children present ranged in age from four months through four years. The total points present equaled 25. There were two caregivers present including the licensee. Children were observed during nap, provider and self-directed activities transitions. Violations observed include background checks for household members, rooms accessible that are not child proofed, accessible top loading freezer, accessible electric space heater, and diaper disposal. These violations may be viewed on the violation notice.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-240-A
Description: Based on observation and interview the center failed to ensure that areas are maintained in safe condition. Evidence: 1 - There are three bedrooms in the family day home that are not used for care of children and have not been child proofed. However, the rooms are accessible to children in care as they are not locked or latched. 2 - There is a top loading freezer in the child care room that does not have a child proof latch in place. 3 - The provider confirmed that the rooms that are not child proofed also do not have child proof latches and or locks on the doors. Additionally, the provider confirmed that the top loading freezer does not have a child proof latch.

Plan of Correction: Going forward the provider will ensure that the rooms not intended to be accessed by children are either locked or latched with child proof latches. The provider will install a child proof latch on the top loading freezer.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-320-E
Description: Based on observation and interview the center failed to ensure that electric heaters located in areas accessible to children have barriers or screens to be located at least three feet from combustible materials. Evidence: 1 - There is an electric space heater on and in use in the child care room. 2 - The electric heater does not have a screen or barrier around it. 3 - The electric heater is approximately two feet off the ground on a wooden shelf. Therefore, it is within reach of children in care today. 4 - The heater is within inches of toys and activity materials that children access independently. 5 - The provider confirmed that the heater was in use today and while children are in care.

Plan of Correction: Going forward the provider will use an electric heater only when it can be positioned out of children's reach, with a barrier and not near combustible materials.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-690-E
Description: Based on observation and interview the center failed to ensure that soiled disposable diapers and wipes 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 caregiver's hand nor the soiled diaper or wipe touches the exterior surface of the storage system during disposal. Evidence: 1 - The assistant caregiver reports that soiled diapers are brought outside to the trash can. 2 - The provider stated that diapers are placed in recycle plastic grocery bags and brought out the trash can. 3 - The provider demonstrated how soiled diapers are disposed of, in doing so the licensee touch the outside of plastic bag several times.

Plan of Correction: Going forward the provider will create and implement a method for disposing of soiled diapers that is in compliance with the standards.

Standard #: 22VAC40-191-40-D-1-a
Description: Based on record review and interview the center failed to ensure that household members 18 years and older have completed all required background checks. Evidence: The provider stated that household member 1 moved into the home on 7/29/15. However, there is not a Sworn Statement or Affirmation, Criminal History report or a Central Registry report on file for this household member.

Plan of Correction: The provider will make the request for the background checks that must be mailed out. A Sworn Statement will be filled out as soon as possible.


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.
