Standard #: 8VAC20-780-270-A
Description: Based on a tour of the playground, the facility failed to ensure that all areas are kept in safe condition.
1. On the new climber, there is a 1/4 inch gap between the slide and the deck. This presents an entanglement hazard.
2. There are three spikes protruding more than one inch from the plastic retaining material.
These spikes present a protrusion hazard.

Plan of Correction: The facility manager will fill in gaps on the climber. Children will not use the climber until it is fixed.
Metal spikes will be driven into guards to prevent protrusion.


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.
