Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-A Description: Based on records reviewed and interview conducted, it was determined that 6 of 7 medications on-site did not have written parent authorization, or the authorizations were incomplete and/or not consistent with the medication administration records.
1. Child #2 - The written medication authorization for a cough syrup states the medicine is to be given every 4 hours however, staff state that the medicine is to be given as needed, which was reflected on the medication administration record.

3. Child #4 - There was no written medication authorization form on-file for Tylenol. A topical ointment form was completed by the parents and accepted by staff however, this form did not include information about dosage and times to be given, nor does it authorize the center to give the medicine.
4. Child #5 - The written medication authorization for a cough syrup was not available for review, as it was shredded during the inspection. Staff stated that they thought it had expired and therefore shredded it.
