I just read an article on Yahoo news about this, about two NYC case workers who are being charged with criminally negligent homicide because a 4 year old died while under their care. In another case in Philadelphia case workers who skipped home visits and filed fake paperwork are serving long term sentences since a 14 year old disabled girl died at the hands of her mother who is serving 20-40 years for her crime.
Some case workers are claiming that the job is just too rough, too hectic, and they are being overworked and that's when these fatal mistakes happen. I know this job is not for the faint of heart, but this is a job that not getting something done correctly proves deadly, why shouldn't case workers who don't do their job be jailed? Especially the ones who fake paperwork, those should get the book thrown at them. What do you think? We have all heard of these cases in our cities, what should be done?
I don't want to judge case workers too harshly because I don't know how hard their job is but they agreed to do this, to care for these children.
