Comments:
An unannounced complaint inspection was conducted on 5/19/17 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in response to a complaint that was received in the licensing office on March 17, 2017 regarding alleged noncompliance in the Care and Protection of children in care. Two staff were interviewed. Four children?s records and 6 staff records were reviewed. Attendance records, parent sign in and out sheets and incident reports were reviewed. Based on the information gathered, there was sufficient evidence to support a portion of the allegation. Areas of non-compliance are identified on the violation notice. Thank you for your time during today's inspection. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I may be of assistance.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-340-A
Complaint related: No
Description: Based on interviews, review of weather history, and records, the licensee did not always ensure the care, protection and guidance of children in care. Evidence: On March 10, 2017, a four year old child (child #1) arrived at the licensee's after school program from public school dressed in shorts. The temperature (according to weather history) between 3:15 p.m. and 4:35 p.m. was 48.2 degrees Fahrenheit. Child #1 was permitted to go outdoors to play in clothing that did not protect him from the cold weather conditions. It was later discovered that the child had an accident while at public school and had been changed into short pants at that time.

Plan of Correction: Staff #1, who was caring for the child on 3/10/17 stated that she was not aware that the child had not left home that morning dressed in shorts. Staff #1 stated that Child #1 and child #1's sibling frequently come to the program dressed inappropriately for the weather and that she has pointed this out to child #1's parent on more than one occasion at the time of pick up. Staff stated that at a minimum, she will contact the child's parent when they are dressed questionably for the weather and will have the child stay indoors if the clothing is significantly inappropriate for the weather conditions. The administrator will establish and communicate, to parents and to staff, how this type of situation is to be handled in the future.

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.
