A monitoring inspection was initiated on 8/5/22 and concluded on 8/5/22. There were 53 children present with 11 staff supervising. The inspector reviewed compliance in the areas of noted above. The inspection started at 9:45am and concluded at 11:15am.
Information gathered during the inspection determined non-compliance with applicable standards or law and violations were documented on the violation notice issued to the program.
Standard #: 8VAC20-780-270-A Description: Based on review of the playground the facility failed to maintain compliance with this standard, regarding the yellow slide, as required. Non-compliance with this standard was also cited on 6/17/22.
At the top of the yellow slide there are gaps 1/4 inch between the support posts and the slide, presenting entanglement hazards.
Plan of Correction: This was corrected after the 6/17/22 inspection, however the correction did not hold and therefore it was non-compliant again during this inspection. A more permanent fix will be completed as soon as possible to ensure the safety of the children and compliance with this standard. Children will not use the slide until it is fixed.
A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.
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.
