Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A
Description: Based on a review of children's records, it was determined that two records were not complete. Evidence: 1. Child record #1 does not include: the mother's employment contact information; the address for each emergency contact person. 2. Child record #5 does not include: each parent's employment contact information; a physical exam report.

Plan of Correction: Both parents will be asked for the missing information.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-70-A
Description: Based on a review of new staff records, it was determined that one record does not include documentation of the staff person's qualifications. Evidence: The record for staff F does not include documentation to show that the staff person is fully qualified to be employed in her role of Lead Teacher.

Plan of Correction: I will ask her to bring the documentation.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-240-A
Description: Based on a review of new staff records, it was determined that there is no documentation of completed First Day Orientation Training for two staff. Evidence: There is no documentation of completed First Day Orientation Training for staff C and staff F.

Plan of Correction: The orientation was done. The documentation will be placed in each file.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-240-D-1
Description: Based on a review of medication administration records, it was determined that there was no documentation on site to show that one staff person holds a current Medication Administration Training (MAT) certification. Evidence: One staff person has administered a child's daily dose of prescription medication during the months of October and November. There was no MAT certificate on site for this staff person.

Plan of Correction: The staff person left the building to get her MAT certificate during this inspection. She returned shortly and showed her current MAT certificate to the Inspector.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-270-A
Description: Based on observations, it was determined that two areas of the center have not been maintained in an acceptable clean condition. Evidence: 1. In the 3's bathroom, there is an extremely strong urine odor. The Inspector smelled the odor when standing in front of the closed bathroom door. Upon opening the bathroom door, the Inspector was presented with the strong and very intense smell of urine. 2. There is a strong smell of urine inside the boy's bathroom in the school-age classroom. There were no visible signs of urine and/or dirt on the floor in either bathroom, indicating that urine has most likely soaked into the floor tiles over time.

Plan of Correction: I have already asked maintenance to replace the floor tiles. I will follow up again to ensure the floor tiles are replaced.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-400-B
Description: Based on observations, it was determined that one staff person engaged in classroom behavioral guidance in a manner that was not constructive in nature, not age and stage appropriate, nor intended to properly redirect children to appropriate behaviors. Evidence: While in the 4's classroom, the Inspector observed one staff person engaging in appropriate behavioral guidance with two different children. The Inspector observed this staff person place their hands on the arms of child 1 and pick him up while angrily giving him classroom instructions. In addition, the Inspector observed this staff person angrily pull child 2 away from the rest of the group during circle time discussions. The Inspector immediately addressed these concerns with the Center Director.

Plan of Correction: After speaking with the Inspector, I immediately removed the staff person from the classroom and discussed the inappropriate actions. The staff person indicated that he was frustrated at the moment and asked for time away from the classroom. The staff person was permitted to leave the building for a short walk. I will only allow the staff person to return to the classroom if there are no further signs of frustration. I will also closely monitor that classroom, along with all classrooms, to ensure that staff only demonstrate appropriate interactions with the children.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-A
Description: Based on a review of children's medications, it was determined that two medications were on site without correctly completed authorization forms. Evidence: One child has two long-term medications on site. Both medications were listed on the same authorization form without clear instructions for dosage for each separate medication.

Plan of Correction: I will ask the parent for a separately completed authorization form for each medication.

Standard #: 22VAC40-80-120-E-6
Description: Based on observations, it was determined that current Special Order issued by the Department was not posted in a prominent place at each public entrance. Evidence: The Special Order, dated 8/1/17, was not prominently posted. This document was hanging beneath fire inspection documents that were attached to a clipboard in the hallway near the office.

Plan of Correction: I will clearly post the Special Order and Notice of Intent at all entrance doors.
