The following was discussed with the "designated person-in-charge:" Standard 510 Medication - When key administrative persons are not in the building, it is incumbent upon the center to ensure there is a plan for a MAT person to be available to administer medication. All staff should be aware of this plan. The designated person-in-charge stated the children in the licensed program do not use a portion of the playground where the green slide on the small hill was located. This slide did not have any resilient surfacing. Please keep in mind during summer camp the school-age children who would access this area during the school year would not be able to use any equipment that does not meet the Standards.
