An unannounced monitoring inspection was completed today. The physical plant, 4 caregiver/household member files, 5 children's files, caregiver training, child nutrition, children's activities, emergency procedures, drills and supplies were inspected between 2:10-3:25pm. There were 10 children (plus the Provider's grandson), totaling 33 points, under the supervision of 1-3* caregivers. *See Violation Notice. Today, the children rested during naptime, ate afternoon snack, enjoyed free play and rested during naptime. The interactions between the children and caregivers were seen to be positive and constructive in nature. The children were served spaghetti with cheese in a spinach sauce, melon and milk for lunch. The Provider is not certified in MAT (medication administration training) and there are no children with any medication needs. Should you have any questions, please contact me at

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-570-A
Description: Based on file review, interview and observations, the Provider did not ensure that caregivers only care for children totaling up to 16 points by using the point system based on the children's age. Evidence 1. When the LI arrived to the FDH, it was 2:10pm. After no one answered the door, the LI called the Provider at 2:14pm. The Provider informed the LI that she had run out and would be back shortly. The Provider arrived back to the home at 2:20pm. Upon entering the FDH it was determined that while the Provider was gone, there were 10 children in care, totaling 32 points under the supervision of 1 caregiver. Once the Provider returned with her grandson, the points went up to 33 points, which required 3 caregivers present and there were only 2 at this time. At 3pm, a household member/caregiver arrived to the FDH. At this time, the point system requirements were met.

Plan of Correction: The Provider will not leave the FDH when she is needed to maintain the point system requriements.

Standard #: 22VAC40-80-120-E-2

Plan of Correction: The Provider will post today's Violation Notice.


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.
