Standard #: VENDSUB-000-006-B-11
Description: Based on record review of five children's records and interview, the facility did not ensure a child with diagnosed food allergies had a written allergy care plan that included instructions from the physician. Evidence: During the inspection, the licensing inspector observed the record for Child #2 did not contain a written allergy care plan that included all requirements. The record for Child #2 indicated the child had a food allergy. The record did not contain an allergy care plan that also included instructions from a physician regarding the food to which the child is allergic to and steps to be taken in the event of a suspected or confirmed allergic reaction. A member of management also reviewed the records and the information could not be located during the inspection.

Plan of Correction: We have previously requested an allergy plan from the family. We will again request this information from the family and add to the record.


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.
