Complaint related: No
Description: Based on observation, areas and equipment outside the center was not maintained in a clean, safe and operable condition.
1. One of the three vans that are used by the center for the transportation of children was not maintained in a clean, safe and operable condition.
2. The carpeting on the floor and the seats of the van were visibly dirty with stains, leftover food and dirt under and on the seats. This was observed from the front of the van to the back.
3. The cloth for the second last seat was torn and pulled down, exposing the torn and broken foam underneath. The metal frame of the seat was exposed as the foam had moved from it's position, posing an injury hazard for children.
4. A small compartment on the left side of the van under the window was broken, exposing a jagged and sharp plastic edge posing an injury hazard to the children.
5. The booster seats in the van appeared to be stained and at least one of them did not have the seat cover.

Plan of Correction: The van has been removed from circulation of transporting children and will not be put back in operation until all repairs and corrections can be made to restore it to safe operating conditions. Management just conducted a meeting on 6/10 about detailing the vans as is routine at the end of the school year. Upon being notified of the damaged seat management immediately contacted an automotive specialist about replacing the seat. The employee responsible for this automobile's safety while transporting children has been terminated. If a replacement seat cannot be located, this van will be retired and replace with a new vehicle. All bosster seat covers have been removed and sanitized.
