We are hearing from providers that licensing staff are issuing valid findings to providers for failing to update their allergy information. Sometimes (not every time) the provider has nothing new to add.
How do you prove you update allergy info for children in your program when there isn't new info to share?
Posted here is a tool you might find handy. Simply post it where you store the children's plates and cups (if that's the dishwasher -- hang it inside a cupboard). If you keep these out, simply put them on a clipboard under the sign in/out sheet, or in a cupboard or somewhere that staff and licensing can easily and quickly check BUT that maintains child and family confidentiality.
Review the form once per month just like those drills and initial and date using the spaces at the bottom of the form.
