Day Care Center Sued Over Toddler's Death
Posted on Jul 19, 2011
A family is suing a day care center over the death of their 22 month old child. The boy was apparently left in a van while temperatures outside soared to over 90 degrees. The center had been open for just around a year. The workers did not have a system to log the children in and out of the van.
The day care center is closed pending investigation by state authorities.
Both day care centers and nursing homes are places where workers must always exercise great diligence. Both types of facilities care for individuals who cannot look out for their own safety.
For family members who rely on these institutions, great care must be exercised in selecting the right one for a loved one. It is important for family members to make unexpected visits to see the type of care being given to a loved one.
