Technical Assistance:
Today we discussed / clarified the requirement that no medication be administered to children in care unless or until the provider has obtained the required / approved medication administration training. This includes both prescription and over the counter medications.

This inspection was conducted by licensing staff using an alternate remote protocol, including telephone contacts, documents review, interviews and a virtual tour of the program.

A monitoring inspection during the 6 month conditional licensure period was initiated on 9/20/2021 and concluded on 10/15/2021. The provider was contacted by telephone and a virtual inspection was conducted. There were 2 children present, ranging in ages from 14 months to 3 years of age with the licensee supervising. The inspector reviewed compliance in the areas of administration, physical plant, staffing and supervision, programming, medication, special care and emergencies and nutrition. A total of 3 child records and 3 staff / household member records were reviewed.

Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the program.

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.
