The following inspection took place between the hours of 10 am through 1 pm. Today, I met with the Staff of the Chesterbrook Academy #801 located in Fairfax, Virginia. At the start of this unannounced monitoring inspection there were a total of 106 children with 19 staff; good ratios in all 7 rooms. A total of 3 children?s files and 2 new staff files were reviewed. The children were engaged in the following: outdoor play on the playground, circle time, song, story time, art, diapering, tummy time, hand washing, bathroom breaks, lunch time, nap time, and other organized activities. If you should have any future questions, please call. Thank you. Charlie Perkins, Licensing Inspector (703) 309-3963

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-160-C
Description: Based on review, 1 of 2 new staff files reviewed indicated (from the documentation on hand) that it has been more than two years from the date of the most recent tuberculosis (TB) screening or testing. Evidence - 1. On the date of inspection (10/27/2015), the most recent TB documentation on file was dated - 09/10/2012. 2. Other documentation was on file that listed various immunizations, but it was so faded that it could not be deciphered.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observation, there were areas both inside and outside the center that were not maintained in clean and/or safe condition. Evidence - 1. On the date of inspection (10/27/2015), the inner soffit area in the covered walkway (outside the Toddler II's room) shows areas where the drywall tape has come away from the ceiling's surface; exposing the corner underneath; leaving a gap. 2. Outside the Preschool I's room, a screen was observed with shredded mesh, and a bent frame. 3. Inside the Toddler I and 2's rooms, the changing pad in each appears to be heavily worn. 4. Inside the Toddler II's room, the blue floor mats are frayed on each corner.

Plan of Correction: All areas and equipment in need of repair will either be replaced, fixed, or if needed discarded altogether.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-J

None of the prescriptions were designated otherwise from orders written by a physician. 3. The cabinet was not in use at the time of this finding.

Plan of Correction: The cabinet will remain locked at all times, except when obtaining or returning medication.

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.
