Description: Based on a sample review of 3 children's records, the Center failed to maintain complete information in each record. The following required information was not on file: 5.) name, address, and phone number of two designated people to call in an emergency if a parent cannot be reached; 2.) the name, home address, and home phone number of each parent who has custody; 3.) when applicable, work phone number and place of employment of each parent who has custody. Evidence: Information was incomplete in two of the three reviewed records. 1. The records of children 1 and 3 did not have at least 2 identified emergency contacts on record. Child 3's parent is listed as one of the two emergency contacts. 2. The name, home address and home phone number and when applicable, work phone number and place of employment of each custodial parent/legal guardian was not listed in the record of child 1.

Plan of Correction: The responsible staff member will review the records with each child's parent and will request that complete information be provided for record retention.


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.
