Comments:
An unannounced Subsidy Health & Safety inspection was conducted today, October 18, 2019 to determine the family day home's compliance with subsidy requirements. The inspection was initiated at 1:45pm and concluded at approximately 3:30pm. All subsidy requirements were reviewed and overall compliance determined. Administrative records, all areas in the home used by children, and outdoor play areas were inspected.

A licensing renewal inspection was conducted on the same date as the SHSI supplemental inspection; the two inspections combined cover all subsidy health and safety requirements. Only subsidy requirements that are not covered in licensing standards are reviewed during this supplemental inspection. See attached notice for violations found during this inspection.

If you have any questions, please contact the licensing inspector at (804) 662-9771.

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.
