Description: Based on observation, direct care and supervision including awareness of and responsibility for each child in care, including being near enough to intervene if needed was not maintained. Evidence: In the infant room off of the common area with the couch, two infants age 11 months and 16 months were left in the room with the gate closed while Staff #2 went to the front infant room with another infant for a diaper change. The other infant room is approximately 20 feet away. Two other staff were present in the kitchen area that is approximately 15 feet from the occupied room. No staff was near enough to ensure awareness of each child and intervention if necessary.

Plan of Correction: In the future, any need to leave a room will be communicated to staff to assist.


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.
