Disabled Children Should Not Be in Nursing Homes

A South Florida Sun-Sentinel editorial says that Florida is failing in its care for disabled children.  A lawsuit filed by the U.S. Department of Justice accused the state of not doing enough to care for disabled children, while the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration found the suit to be “disruptive.”  The editorial slams AHCA and other Florida agencies for the lack of options when it comes to caring for disabled children.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
