Description: Based on interviews with staff, review of accident reports, review of attendance sheets and review of the biting policy, it was determined that the staff failed to ensure the care protection and guidance of the children in the Infant B class. Evidence: On 1/13/16 at 9:20 a.m. Child #1 was bitten on the finger by Child #2. Child #2 is a known biter. There were 5 children in the classroom with Staff A and Staff B. On 1/14/16, Child #1, at 10:50 a.m., was under the cribs and when he exited the crib, he bumped his head on the yellow metal piece, resulting in a bump on his forehead and a scrape on it. There were 5 children in the room with Staff A and Staff B. On 1/15/16 , Child #1 was bitten by child #2 on the forehead.

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.
