Comments:
AN unannounced, mandated monitoring inspection was conducted today. The inspector arrived at 10:45 AM and departed at 2:40 PM. Fifty-nine children were in care at the start of the inspection. Morning activities and lunch service were observed. A sample size of six children's records and nine staff records were reviewed. Medication administration and injury records were reviewed. An exit meeting was conducted with the program director prior to closure of the inspection.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B
Description: Based upon observation, the facility has not ensured that hazardous substances are kept in a locked place using a safe locking method that prevents access by children. Evidence: There was a container of liquid dish soap labeled "caution" and "keep out of reach of children" in a high cabinet above the counter in the two year old classroom. The cabinet did not have a locking device.

Plan of Correction: The facility responded with the following: The dish soap had been used for a project with the children and was moved to a locked cabinet during the inspection. All staff will be reminded that potentially hazardous substances must be kept in a locked location when not being used by staff.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-A
Description: Based upon review of the medication stored for administration or emergency administration to children in care, the facility has not ensured that there is written authorization for the medication to be administered. Evidence: There was an Epi-pen Jr. and a container of epinephrine stored for potential administration to child #7. Although there was an allergy management and care plan signed by the parent and physician, there was no written authorization from the parent for the medications to be administered by the facility staff.

Plan of Correction: The facility responded with the following: As the facility had documentation of the allergy management and care plan, signed by both the parent and physician, it was assumed that this would suffice as parental authorization. A separate authorization form will be obtained from the parent and physician for emergency administration of the medicines.
