Can CPS Do This In Florida?

I have a friend who was turned into CPS ( Child Protective Serivces )
for medical neglect ( long story ). They had her and her daughter come in under the pretense they were going to do a medical exam for the daughter's seizures ( daughter has already been diagnosed ). They told my friend she was allowed in examination room but never took her in there; just kept her in office for the whole hour. The investigator admitted she had never heard of the medical team calling someone in for an exam over seizures. Anyway the daughter told my friend they pulled down her pants and took pictures of every single bruise on her body. My friend is extremely pissed because she feels she was led there under false pretenses. Should she get a lawyer or at least talk to one? Can CPS do that?

Idk if they can do that, but that sounds like enough reason to talk to a lawyer. If it were me and that happened, yeah my next call would be to a lawyer

Well they just did.  It doesn't mean they SHOULD, though.

How old was the daughter?  My oldest is 6 and autistic and the only time one of us parents wasn't in the actual room for a procedure was when she needed an xray, and DH was only out for the few seconds that everyone else was out of the room.  I've never been told to leave, but I HAVE been told to help hold her down during some of her exams.  She can't really be talked into staying still.  I wouldn't let her sisters get examined alone, either, even if they're better at following directions.

There's no harm in just talking to a lawyer.  She should find one that specializes in fighting CPS.  I think there's even a Fight CPS website that lists them.

Its was over the youngest daughte; she's 8. I also thought it weird they did that and I will tell her about the website.

That's normal and she was probably told it was an exam but not how detailed. We had to deal with them when my son was hurt at school. I had to flat out tell them my son won't be out of my eyesight without a court order.

I was thinking the same thing, not enough detail to give an accurate answer...

Completely understand, and that's fine. I was just saying I couldn't give my honest answer without knowing all details...
