54.1-3408 Provider must be MAT certified to administer prescription medication.

An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from 11:40 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. At the time of entrance, 3 children, ages 20 months old to 4 years old, were in care with 2 caregivers present. The records sample size consisted of 3 children?s records and 2 provider / assistant/ household member records. Children were observed resting quietly on mats during nap time. Medication administration was not observed. The licensee states that no medication is administered to children in care; children are not transported in a vehicle and there have been no accidents or injuries incurred by children in care requiring first aid or medical care since the last inspection. Areas of non-compliance are identified on the violation notice. Thank you for your time during today's inspection. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I may be of assistance. The licensee provided verbal responses to the violations during the inspection, which were entered on to the violation notice by the Licensing inspector.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-60-B
Description: Based on a review of records, the licensee did not ensure that each enrolled child has a record which contains all required information. Evidence: Three children's records were reviewed. The record for child # 3 who enrolled 11/7/16 and was present for care during the inspection, did not contain the name, address and telephone number of a second designated person to contact in case of an emergency if the parent cannot be reached.

Plan of Correction: The licensee stated that she would speak to the parent today and have a second emergency contact added to the record. The parent is new to the area and did not know who else to designate when the child enrolled. In the future, a contact which isnot local, but could be called, if needed, will be used until a local contact can be established.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-350-E
Description: Based on measurements taken during the inspection, the licensee did not ensure that hot water at taps available to children shall be maintained within a range of 105?F to 120?F. Evidence: The hot water from the tap in the downstairs restroom that is utilized by children in care read 126?F when measured with a digital thermometer.

Plan of Correction: The children are always assisted by an adult with adjusting the water when they wash their hands. However, the licensee adjusted the temperature lower at the hot water heater during the inspection to bring the tap water temperature into compliance.


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.
