22VAC40-191 Background Checks (22VAC40-191)

Today an unannounced monitoring visit was conducted beginning at 1:45pm. There were 69 children present today with 12 teachers. During this inspection the Director self-reported an incident that occurred on 9/15/15. This "other" self-reported incident was also investigated today and violations were found regarding children's allergies. Children were observed napping, listening to stories being read by teachers, playing with blocks, and coloring while preparing for snack. Classrooms have fall-themed children's artwork on display. The center has a new privacy fence with new mulch on the playgrounds. Children's and staff records were reviewed in addition to medications and authorizations. This inspection, including the exit interview, ended at 4:40pm. Should you have any questions, please call.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-40-E
Description: Based on written documentation and discussion with administration, three staff failed to comply with the center's own policies on 9/15/15. Evidence: On 9/15/15 three staff (#2,8 and 10) did not follow the center's policy stating that staff must "maintain a safe and healthy environment, both indoors and outdoors, following all rues and procedures of the school and company as well as state licensing standards". At approximately 3pm on 9/15/15 carrots were served to all children in the classroom, including child #4, who is listed on the allergy list as being allergic to carrots. The child ate a carrot, broke out in hives and it was immediately brought to the attention of the Principal. The principal then immediately called the parents and was not instructed to provide emergency care for child #4. The child's parent came to the center to pick up the child and stated that the allergy to carrots is a suspicion to the parents and not medically diagnosed. The allergy suspicion was verbally communicated with administration which is why it was placed on the allergy list. For other medically diagnosed allergies listed for child #4 the action to take first is to call the parents.

Plan of Correction: All staff have been retrained in policies and procedures regarding allergies and food service. We have now implemented name tags for children to put at their seat at the table with color coded tags for children with food allergies.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-G
Description: Based on a direct observation while reviewing medications and authorizations, three children's prescription medications (#12,15,16) are missing required documentation or authorizations. Evidence: Child #12 has a prescription medication with no original prescription label from the pharmacy. Children #12,15 and 16 have prescription medications with no written parent authorization to administer the medications.

Plan of Correction: We will ask the parents to get a label from the pharmacy for child #12. When parents arrive for children #12,15 and 16 we will have them fill out the short-term medication authorization form and ask for the physician's authorization to be completed within the next 10 days.


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.
