Technical Assistance:
We discussed the requirements for medication, staff records and the age/identity law. The risk assessments for violations were provided. We talked about maintenance of the resilient surfacing on the playground and referring to your playground safety plan. An evacuation drill is needed for December. We reviewed safe practices to follow during transitions in the hall in order to maintain sight and sound supervision of all children. The proposed downstairs infant room was viewed. It was recommended that the changing table be moved close to the hand sink for ease with hand washing needs. Also, the lamp needs to be stabilized since it wobbles on the shelf surface.

Thank you for your assistance during today's unannounced monitoring inspection conducted from 11:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Today, there were six children, ages two through seven years, with one to two caregivers. I viewed program activities, daily routines, equipment, staffing, supervision, interactions with children, nutrition, posted information, medication, emergency supplies and drill records, five records for children, five staff records, staff qualifications, staff training, and indoor areas. The playground equipment was not in use recently and not inspected at this time. I was not shown any minor injury records and we discussed some of the documentation requirements for treated injuries and parent notification. Please, review the standards for injury records. Also, make sure you have received all recent e-mails and let me know if you have any problems since the fingerprinting requirements will be implemented soon. The children were provided access to a variety of play equipment, table activities, active play in the gym, and had stories read to them. Children brought their own lunch and snack was offered to the children.

Let me know if you need any assistance. 540/430-9259

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-160-C
Description: Based on a review of five records for staff, and an interview with staff, the updated TB screening and statement for staff member 1 was obtained late, and not by two years from the date of the last statement. Evidence: The TB statement dated October 14, 2015 was not updated until November 30, 2017.

Plan of Correction: The administrative staff will use a reminder system for tracking record needs so that arrangements are made to update TB screenings and statements well in advance of due dates.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-40-G
Description: Based on a review of five records for children, and interviews with staff, the center failed to view and document proof of identity and age for child 3. Evidence: Child began attending in August 2017 and attended five dates in August and some dates in each month since. However, the section for staff to complete the viewing of a birth record was left blank and there was not a copy of a birth record or documentation of a report to local law enforcement when proof of age and identity was not verified within seven business days of initial attendance.

Plan of Correction: A parent was spoken to today and agreed to bring a copy of a birth record this week. The administrative staff person or assigned staff will keep track of the need for verification of age and identity when a birth record is not provided with the registration forms and the administrative staff will make sure the requirements for the state law are followed.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-C
Description: Based on a review of long-term medication kept at the center for child 1M, and interviews with staff, the center failed to follow methods to prevent the use of outdated medication. Evidence: A prescription medication for child 1M had an expiration date of October 2017. Child 1M attended a day in November and the last attendance date was last week.

Plan of Correction: The director or a M.A.T. trained staff person will make sure the outdated medication is returned to the parent and replaced with a currently prescribed medication. The M.A.T. certified staff will have a schedule for viewing medication and arranging for the replacement of long term medication prior to the expiration dates.

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.
