Comments:
An unannounced monitoring inspection was conducted from 9:13 am-1:30pm. At the time of entrance, 77 children were in care with 14 staff members present. Children were observed during table toy activities, water table fun, art, engaged in group activities and infant care. A selection of staff and children records, medications and other documents were reviewed. Areas of non-compliance are identified in the violation notice. Please contact me if you have any questions at Stacy.Doyle@dss.virginia.gov 571-835-0386.

Violations:
Standard #: 22VAC40-185-60-A
Description: Based on record review, three of seven children's records did not have complete information. Evidence: 1. Child A's file was missing the annual update on emergency information. The child began 11/07/2016 and was last reviewed on 11/15/2016. 2. Child B's file was missing one parent's work phone number. 3. Child E's file was missing one parents work phone number.

Plan of Correction: I will have all parents renew their enrollment agreements with the emergency contact information.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-B
Description: Based on observation, hazardous substances such as cleaning materials, insecticides, and pesticides were not kept in a locked place using a safe locking method that prevents access by children. Evidence: 1. In the infant B classroom, a bottle of multipurpose cleaner was on the cubby shelf and was not kept locked when not in use. 2. In the bathroom, an air wick plug in was plugged in an outlet near the sink and was accessible to children. 3. In the infant A classroom, an air wick plug in was plugged in an outlet and was not kept locked. 4. In the infant A classroom, the changing table was not locked and contained 3 multi-surface cleaners and disinfectants. The table had a sliding latch on it, but it was slid to the left and not closed. It would not be considered a safe locking method if it had been closed.

Plan of Correction: I will put in a work order for the lock in Infant A classroom. I will remove all the plugs ins and cover the outlets. I will speak to the teachers and retrain them at the next staff meeting.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-280-H
Description: Based on observation and interview, all purses were not stored in areas inaccessible to children. Evidence: 1. In the Toddler classroom, a purse was hanging on the coat rack in the classroom behind a coat and was accessible to children. The inspector asked the teacher if the bag was a purse and she stated it was and would put it away.

Plan of Correction: The teacher moved the purse to the closet immediately.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-510-N
Description: Based on review of medication, when an authorization for medication expires, the parents were not notified that the medication needs to be picked up within 14 days or the parent must renew the authorization. Medications that were not picked up by the parent within 14 days were not disposed of by the center by either dissolving the medication down the sink or flushing it down the toilet. Evidence: 1. Child A had an expired medication authorization form that was signed by the parent only on 1/23/2016 and the long term medications remained at the center. 2. Child B had an expired medication authorization form that was signed by the parent only on 2/07/2018 and the long term medication remained at the center. 3. Child C had a medication at the center and did not have an authorization form on file. 4. Child D had an expired medication authorization form that was signed by the parent only on 02/03/2018 and the long term medication remained at the center.

Plan of Correction: I will send the forms to the parents to have them sign and have their doctors sign the forms. In the meantime, the parents will be asked to update their forms today or the medication will be sent home today.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-520-C
Description: Based on review, the center is not following all requirements when diaper ointment and creams are used. Evidence: 1. In the infant B classroom, Child G, Child H and Child F had diaper ointments or creams with the child's name on it, but did not have a current diaper cream form on file or the form was expired. 2. In the infant A classroom, Child B and Child I had diaper ointments or creams with the child's name on it, but did not have a current diaper cream form on file or the form was expired.

Plan of Correction: I will have the teachers send new forms to the parents with the creams.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-540-C
Description: Based on observation, the first aid kit did not contain all required items. Evidence: 1. The first aid was missing two triangular bandages.

Plan of Correction: I will order them.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-550-E
Description: Based on review and interview, the center did not maintain a record of the dates of the practice drills for one year. Evidence: 1. The center had a record of practice drills for all months, except for January 2018 and February 2018. The Director stated the drills were completed, but she did not document them.

Plan of Correction: I will update the record with the dates.
