The banister/handrail used to descend the stairs to access the play spaces and playgrounds was loose and had a broken piece making it unsteady when in use 3. The large sandbox had an exposed nail on the corner 4. There were various broken toys being used by children; multiple broken plastic bowling pins, broken wagon handle, broken plastic chairs (all of which had sharp edges or pinch points), and busted playground balls 5.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-A
Description: Based on the Licensing Inspector's observation, the facility failed to ensure the care and protection of all children in care as stated in the standards. Evidence: During the service of lunch, a 9 year old child in care was served fish nuggets. The child stated "I can't eat this because it's fish", a staff member stated it wasn't fish but rather chicken. Another child at the table confirmed that it was in fact fish. The Inspector asked the child if he just didn't like fish and a staff member spoke up and stated "no, he's allergic to fish". The fish nuggets were removed from his plate and he was given deli ham as a replacement meat. The child's allergy was indicated on the posted allergy list in the kitchen and fish fillet was listed on the posted menu. The child has a skin reaction allergy if allergens are ingested rather than an anaphylaxis reaction.

Plan of Correction: 1. Meal counts with specific children's allergies will be turned into the kitchen staff. 2. Classrooms will eat at different times, not as one whole group 3. Menus will be given to all staff for their review for allergies
