One child who attended the program last week (7/5-7/8) had a prescription medication on-site. The child is no longer attending the current summer camp session. Please remember to return the medication to the parents within 14 days from 7/8/16 or dispose of the medication.

Today an unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted beginning at 11am. There were 48 children present with three staff. Children were observed playing outside on the playground, coming inside to refill water bottles, wash hands and have quiet activities before lunch. Four medications with children's records were reviewed. Staff first aid/CPR certifications and medication administration training (MAT) were reviewed and found to be current. This inspection, including the exit interview, ended at 12:30pm. Should you have any questions, please call.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B
Description: Based on direct observation, hazardous substances were not locked away at the start of the inspection. Evidence: A disinfecting spray and permanent markers were out on the teacher's table, accessible to children.

Plan of Correction: These were locked away immediately once discussed with the Director. We will keep these in a locked cabinet when not in use by a teacher.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-D
Description: Based on discussion and review of documentation, two children's prescription medications do not have authorizations from the parent and/or physician for the center to administer. Evidence: There are two authorizations for the two medications, however, they are authorizations signed by the parent and physician for Loudoun County Public Schools, and not for Loudoun County Parks, Recreation and Community Services. There are no short-term authorizations for both children, signed by the parent

Plan of Correction: We will have the parents sign the short-term medication authorization and have them renew it every 10 days until a physician authorization is also obtained. We will used forms that authorize Loudoun County Parks, Recreation and Community Services staff to administer.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-J
Description: Based on direct observation, four medications for children were not locked away, preventing access from children. Evidence: When returning to the cafeteria from the playground, the cabinet which contains children's medications was not locked.

Plan of Correction: We will keep this cabinet locked when we are not using it.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-560-G
Description: Based on observation and discussion, lunch bags and containers inside the lunch bags were not completely labeled with each child's name and the date. Evidence: A sampling of 5 lunch bags was observed. All five lunch bags included a sticker with today's date, however, they did not have a label indicating who the lunch bag belongs to.

Plan of Correction: We will have parents label the lunch boxes today at pick up with their child's name.


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.
