Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted today. Upon arrival, the provider was not home. One substitute caregiver and one assistant caregiver were caring for 4 children, totaling 11 points. The provider returned home very soon after the start of this inspection. Children's records, administrative records, administrative items, new caregiver records, background checks, the physical plant, the care of children, and caregiver:child interactions were inspected today.

The children were observed playing with toys and interacting with each caregiver. The children were to be served chicken soup with vegetables and chickpeas, sliced apples, and milk for lunch today.

This inspection was completed between approximately 10:45am and 12:20pm. Thank you for meeting with me today. If you have any questions regarding this inspection please email me at sandra.dimperio@dss.virginia.gov

Violations:

Evidence:
The provider has not conducted a fire evacuation drill each month. Based on documentation of children's enrollment dates, the provider has had children in care during the months of November and December, 2019.

Plan of Correction: We will do 2 drills in January and February. After that we will remember to do a fire drill every month.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-120-B
Description: Based on a review of caregiver records, it was determined that one record does not contain all required information.
Evidence:
The file for substitute caregiver #1 does not include: verification of her age/ID.

Plan of Correction: The provider asked her for a copy of her ID immediately during the inspection. She will bring it tomorrow.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-50-C
Description: Based on observations of posted administrative items, it was determined that the provider did not maintain the information in each child's record in a privileged and confidential manner.
Evidence:
The provider posted a list of each child's name and emergency contact information on the administrative board that is hanging in the children's drop off/pick up area. This method of posting does not keep this information confidential, as all parents and staff members can read the information.

Plan of Correction: The list was immediately moved during the inspection.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-70-A
Description: Based on a review of children's records, it was determined that the provider has not obtained written documentation showing that she has provided each parent with all required written information.
Evidence:
The provider has not obtained a signed "Information for Parents" form from each parent.

Plan of Correction: I will remind each parent to sign the form and return it.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-90-A
Description: Based on a review of children's health records, it was determined that the provider did not obtain a current immunization record for one child prior to this child's first day of attendance.
Evidence:
Child C entered care on 11/2/19. This child's date of birth is 12/29/17. The immunization record supplied at the time of enrollment was completed on 1/19/18 when the child was one month old. The child is now 2 years old. This immunization record is not current.

Plan of Correction: I will remind the parent to bring a new shot record.

Standard #: 22VAC40-111-240-A
Description: Based on observations, it was determined that area of the home has not been maintained in a safe condition.
Evidence:

Plan of Correction: These items were moved during the inspection.

Standard #: 22VAC40-191-60-D-1
Description: Based on a review of required caregiver background checks, it was determined that the provider did not conduct the necessary follow-up to determine the status of the results for one staff person's Central Registry background search.
Evidence:
The provider submitted the Central Registry background search request for caregiver C on 11/26/2019. The search results for this caregiver were not received within 30 days. As of the date of this inspection on 1/9/20 the results had not been received. The provider did not follow-up with Central Registry to determine the status of the search request results.

Plan of Correction: I called to follow-up immediately during the inspection. I was told that the results were sent to the wrong email address. The search results will now be sent to my correct email address within the next 24 hours. After I receive them, I will forward the results to my Inspector.
