Consultation was given to the provider that if the individual continues to live in the home or is found to have moved back into the home, anytime in the future, she will place her State license in jeopardy due to the fact the the family member has a barrier crime.
A complaint allegation was conducted over two days to determine if a family member who has a disqualifying background check lives in the home. Based on the preponderance of evidence the allegation is valid. The provider sent an e-mail on 6/13/2018 to confirm that HHM #1 has moved. The e-mail contained a picture of a driver's license issued 5/29/2018 with a different address and she states that the individual has moved out of the home. Areas of non-compliance are identified in the violation notice. If you have any questions regarding the inspection, please feel free to contact me. Thank you Ann Dramstad Licensing Inspector 703-314-0860 email@example.com
Standard #: 63.2-1721.1-C Complaint related: Yes Description: Based on observation, interviews and documented YouTube video, a household member resides in the home who has a disqualifying background search. The household member's Criminal Record Check has a barrier conviction. Evidence: 1. Adult #1's CRC was reviewed on 7/14/2016 during the initial study and it was determined that the household member (HHM) could not live in the home due to a barrier crime. At that time the provider stated in her plan of correction that "the person will move out of the home" 2. The Conditional license was not issued until it was confirmed that the HHM had moved out. At each subsequent visit the provider stated that the HHM was not a resident of the home and the individual was not listed on the renewal applications. Five visits were conducted from September 16, 2016-January 23, 2018. 3. An unannounced complaint allegation visit was conducted on May 24, 2018. The Licensing Inspector and a representative from Arlington Child Care Office were at the home from 8:40-9:30. Interviews were conducted with the provider and Adult HHM #2 who repeatedly stated that HHM #1 did not live in the home. A tour of the home was conducted with the provider and three bedrooms were occupied with clothing, personal belongings and a damp towel on the bed. 3. No lease, driver's license or bill could confirm HHM #1's residence was Baltimore MD as all paperwork listed the Arlington address. 4. A YouTube video of the Arlington County Virginia Board Meeting from 5/22/2018 was watched by the Licensing Inspector and Arlington County Child Care Worker which recorded the County Board Meeting's discussion of the Special Use Permit (SUP) for the provider's license. The provider has applied for a SUP to increase her capacity from 5 to 9 children. During this recorded video it was stated by HHM #2 that "We have 5 children and you know you have myself and my brother who occupy the house right now" on the video at 5:25:03-5:25:07 5. A second visit was conducted on May 25, 2018 by the Licensing Inspector and a co-worker to verify the person speaking in that video was HHM #2. The provider watched the video from 5:22:00-5:26:00 and the Provider confirmed it was HHM #2 speaking and that HHM #2 stated that both HHM #1 and HHM #2 lived in the home.
