Standard #: 22VAC40-185-70-A
Description: Based on review and/or update of six staff records and discussion with staff #1 on December 14, 2017, the program failed to obtain verification of age and document completion of orientation training for one staff member. Evidence: 1. Review of staff #7's record, on this date, determined that verification of age and documentation of orientation training were not included in the staff member's record. 2. Staff #1 verified the lack of required information in the staff member's record.

Plan of Correction: Verification of age was obtained from the staff member on December 14, 2017 and completion of orientation training was added to the staff record.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-G
Description: Based on review of five children's medications and discussion with staff #1 on December 14, 2017, the program failed to ensure the current prescription label, in accordance with the prescriber's instructions, was obtained for one child's medication. Evidence: 1. Review of child A's medication, on this date, revealed that the prescription label and the date on the box did not match the current prescription medication. The prescription label on file was for an expired medication. 2. Staff #1 confirmed that the prescription medication on site had a current date but the prescription label and accompanying box had an expired date.

Plan of Correction: The child's parent was immediately contacted and a current prescription label will be obtained for the medication.


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.

Virginia Quality is a voluntary quality rating and improvement system for early care and education facilities serving children ages birth through pre-K. Eligible child care facilities must be fully licensed, licensed exempt and a VDSS subsidy vendor, or a voluntary registered day home and a VDSS subsidy vendor. Only programs enrolled in Virginia Quality will display a rating. Virginia Quality contact information for your region is available at the following link Regional Contacts.
