Technical Assistance:
Consultation was given on the new background requirements for finger printing, a revised Sworn Disclosure Statement for new staff hired after 7/1/2017 and requesting out of state Central Registry checks for staff who have lived outside the State of VA within the last five years. The model SDS form is online at VA DSS as well as a link to the Adam Walsh site to assist with out of state central registry forms. VDSS will be paying for initial child care fingerprint checks until 9/20/18. Each facility must establish a point of contact with DSS. All questions regarding facility codes should be directed to OBI at 804-726-7884. Eligible letters will be sent out by emails and staff may not work with children (ratios or supervision) or be on site until a completed letter is received. Please read, review and respond to all correspondences regarding the fingerprint roll out.

Comments:
An unannounced renewal study was conducted today from 10:30-12:30. All rooms were in ratio with direct care staff. Children were observed with a special visitor, transition into the classrooms, circle time and preparation for lunch. A sample of staff records, medication authorizations and children records were reviewed as well as staff training. Emergency preparation, first aid supplies and a survey of the playgrounds were conducted during the renewal study. Areas of non-compliance are identified in the violation notice. If you have any questions regarding the inspection, please feel free to contact me. Thank you Ann Dramstad Licensing Inspector 703-314-0860 ann.dramstad@dss.virginia.gov

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.
