Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted on December 3, 2018 from 2:35 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. There were 6 children present, 2 to 4 years old, for a total of 16 points, in care at the time of arrival with the provider and one assistant caregiver. A seventh child, 8 years old, arrived during the inspection. The records sample size consisted of 6 children?s records and 2 provider / caregiver / household member records. Children were observed playing with a variety of toys during the inspection and being read o from children's literature. Diapering procedures, hand washing, sanitizing and restroom procedures were also observed today. The vendor states that no medication is administered to children in care at this time and that children are not routinely transported in a vehicle. Children play outdoors in the back yard, which is completely decked and gated, under the direct supervision and close proximity of the vendor. The vendor reports that there have been no accidents or injuries requiring first aid or medical treatment incurred by children in care since the last inspection. Thank you for your time during today's inspection. Please let me know if I may be of assistance.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-111-690-E
Description: Based on observation, the licensee did not ensure that soiled dispers are disposed in such a way that the caregivers hand nor the soiled diaper or wipe touches the sterior surface or the can (or any other surface) during disposal. Evidence: The provider was observed changing a two year old child's diaper on a water proof mat located on the floor. After removing the diaper from the child, the provider placed it inside of a plastic bag, tied the bag closed and placed it on the floor. After dressing the child, the provider picked up the diaper and walked it to the kitchen where she disposed of it in the kitchen trashcan. The provider stated that she usually walks the diaper straight outside and places it in the outdoor trashcan. Without a step can in close proximity, the diaper is temporarily placed on a surface and the provider must travel through other rooms to dispose of the soiled diaper. If the dipaer is walked directly outdoors, the provider must tyrn the door handle to open the back door which allows germs to be spread to household surfaces.

Plan of Correction: The provider stated that she has a small step can which she will begin bringing in to the area where diapers are being changed so that she may drop the diaper directly into the can without touching any surface before she can wash her hands.
