Consultation was given on the subsidy inspection process, allergy plan, and notification of injuries requirements.

An unannounced Subsidy Health & Safety inspection was conducted today, March 23, 2017 to determine the family day home's compliance with subsidy requirements. The inspection was initiated at 2:15pm and concluded at approximately 4:15pm. All subsidy requirements were reviewed and compliance determined. Administrative records, rooms used by children, and outdoor play areas were inspected. See attached notice for violations found during this inspection.

If you have any questions, contact the licensing inspector at (804) 662-9771.

Standard #: VENDHOM-000-029-B-5
Description: Based on the inspection of administrative records, the family day home did not have any written lockdown procedures.

During the inspection of administrative records, it was discovered the emergency preparedness plan did not contain lockdown procedures. Subsidy regulations require written lockdown procedures to include the following: methods to alert caregivers and emergency responders; methods to secure the home and designated lockdown locations; methods to account for all children; methods of communication with parent and emergency responders; accommodations or special needs requirements for children to ensure their safety during lockdown; and procedures to reunite children with parents or authorized person designated by the parent to pick up the child.

Plan of Correction: Per provider: I will review the requirements and create the lockdown procedures. Once completed, I will include them with my emergency preparedness plan.


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.
