Standard #: 22VAC40-185-260-A
Description: Based on staff report and reviewed documentation, the program failed to ensure documentation of the school's annual fire inspection report was current. Evidence: 1. Documentation of the last fire inspection conducted in the school and available for review in the center was dated 10/05/16. 2. At the time of this monitoring inspection, program staff contacted the school office to request documentation of the current inspection. Staff was informed by school administrative staff that a fire inspection has been requested but as of this date, an inspection has not been completed.

Plan of Correction: Program staff will follow up with the school office and the appropriate fire official, documentation of the current fire inspection will be maintained by the program.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B
Description: Based on direct observations, the program failed to ensure hazardous substances such as cleaning materials were kept in a locked place using a safe locking method that prevents access by children. Evidence: The LI observed a one-step disinfectant sitting out on a cabinet in the cafeteria; the container was accessible to the children. The cabinet was located near the lunch tables used by the children.

Plan of Correction: 1. Program staff will monitor the cafeteria and any other area used by the children to ensure all hazardous substances are stored inaccessible to the children. 2. Program staff will notify and request that other school personnel store all materials with a warning label and "keep out of reach" appropriately.

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.
