Abstract: The purpose of this study was to survey by means of a questionnaire the pediatric staff members in the hospitals in North Carolina. Respondents were hospital administrators, staff pediatricians and pediatric nurses. The questionnaire was designed to investigate the acceptance of pediatric play activity centers and the understanding of the play activity center director's role. The null hypotheses were: 1. There is no difference in the acceptance of play activity centers among pediatric nurses, pediatricians and hospital administrators. 2. There is no difference in the perceived need for trained personnel for play activity centers among nurses, pediatricians and hospital administrators.
