Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted on 9/4/19 from 10:20am - 11:45am. At the time of the inspection there were eight children in care, ages five months old to two years old (16 points), with two caregivers present. Records were reviewed for five children and five caregivers/household members. Children were observed playing with toys, doing learning activities, and eating lunch. The provider stated there are no medications being administered at this time. Emergency plan and emergency supplies were reviewed. Areas of non-compliance are identified on the violation notice and were discussed with the provider during the exit interview.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-111-100-A

Evidence: 1. The record for child #5, (date of enrollment 7/15/19) present during the inspection, did not contain documentation of a physical examination. 2. Caregiver #1 reviewed the record for child #5, and confirmed the record did not contain documentation of a physical examination.

Plan of Correction: The provider responded: The parents of child #5 will be contacted to provide a copy of the physical examination and has provided it.

New children to the family day home will have documentation of a physical examination on file within 30 days of enrollment.

Caregiver #1 reviewed the record for child #1 and child #2 and confirmed that it did not contain all of the required information.

Disclaimer:

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.
