Previous violations were reviewed, and had been corrected. There were 5 violations within 4 areas of the standards. Please contact me if you need further assistance. Thank you for your cooperation.

Evidence: There is currently only 1 of the 4 staff who holds current certification in CPR/FA. This staff member works from 8:15am-5:15pm daily.

Plan of Correction: Staffing adjustments will be made to ensure immediate compliance, until the staff can obtain the CPR/FA course. In the future the certifications will be kept up to date and renewed as needed.


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.
