2018-09-20 2018-09-21 article 3 R9-5-301.D.2.a.-d.
Findings: Based on surveyor 1's observation, it was found that the facility had all doors locked at the time of surveyor 1's arrival. Surveyor 1 walked around the entire building trying all doors and then to the building next door which was a gymnasium/multipurpose room for the elementary school next door. Those doors were locked and the children inside were too loud to hear surveyor 1 knocking. Surveyor 1 then returned to the car and drove to the back of the elementary school. There was a special needs teacher putting children from the school onto a bus. The staff stated that the Recreation program does have a preschool and that they should be there. Surveyor 1 then drove back to the facility and again tried several doors. Surveyor 1 went through the gated playground and knocked on 2 other doors. Children were heard inside, but rooms looked empty from the windows. After approximately 10 more minutes of knocking on a double door, a staff came to the door. Surveyor 1 then was escorted to the only classroom in operation. Options for immediate access were discussed with the director. As the facility often operates an "only" classroom in the large building, safety of the children was of utmost importance. The inside doors have bars to let children out in an emergency, but the outside doors are kept locked. A doorbell is almost non observant from the playground area under a strong sun. Surveyor 1 and the director decided that signs should be posted on all doors in the front of the building with arrows to direct visitors to the classroom. The doorbell should be accentuated to be more visual and tested regularly to ensure visitors are attended to immediately. Surveyor was not able to access the facility for over 30 minutes.
