Most mothers and fathers screen potential daycare facilities to make sure their children will be safe. Thus, it comes as a shock when a child suffers serious injuries in a daycare environment. When a caregiver is found to have been overtly negligent, parents find it hard to believe, and normally feel a need to find out why and how the injury took place.
If your child is injured or harmed at a daycare facility, the most urgent priority is to get them the medical care and therapy they need. Depending on the severity of the injury, he or she may face lifelong disabilities and special needs. After you seek medical attention for your child, you should consult with an experienced attorney. Our firm is skilled at discovering how a personal injury occurred and using evidence gathered to build strong cases for full compensation.
State Officials Investigating Daycare in Hutto, Texas for Several Violations
According to KVUE, Texas officials are investigating a daycare in Hutto, Texas for multiple violations and accusations.
State inspectors cited the Greenhouse Learning Center in Hutto on January 8 and 13 for failing to have the proper FBI background check on one of the daycare workers. Inspectors are also investigating whether caregivers are punishing or disciplining children appropriately.
In 2010, the state ordered another daycare in Hutto, Hippo Academy, to shut down due to shocking allegations of abuse and neglect, including slapping an infant on the cheek, using pepper as a form of punishment, putting a cloth over the face of a crying infant and feeding hot sauce to a 9-week-old baby.
