|Licensing Program Analyst (LPA) Maddox met with Kimberly McKinney, Director today for the purpose of conducting a Case Management (CM) visit. This CM visit is conducted to discuss an Unusual Incident Report (UIR) received regarding child #1. |
The first incident involved a child who proceeded to have a temper tantrum after his mom dropped him off at Kids Town. Child #1 began hitting the door with is hands, then began hitting the back of his head and body up against the door in Suite #127. Staff person #1 approached child #1 and took his hand in an effort try to calm him down. Staff #1 stated child #1 pulled away from her, fell on the floor and continued with a tantrum (crying and flailing his arms). She stated she went to the office and asked Asst. Director if it was okay to pick him up, she said okay. She stated she picked him up and noticed his head was bleeding, she immediately took him to the office, child #1 was still flailing his arms and crying. Asst. Director cleaned the area, contacted Mom (left vm), and the Director. Mom called back (about 10 min later) and spoke with Staff #1 to see if child #1 was okay. Staff person #1 informed mom that he was okay but he sustained a small cut (about 3/4 of an inch) on the back of his head. Asst. Director took pictures of the injury (picture viewed during this visit). Child #1 has 2 siblings, all still in attendance.
