Ministry of Human Services’ response to the Office of the Child and Youth Advocate "8-year-old Ella: an investigative review"

Description

In 2013, a staff at a group care facility went to awaken an eight-year-old girl in their care. She was breathing heavily and would not wake up, which was attributed to her prescribed sleep medication. Shortly thereafter, staff returned to wake her and found her unresponsive. Staff began CPR and called 911. Despite all efforts, the child was pronounced deceased at the hospital. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner advised that the cause of death was trichloroethanol toxicity and the manner of death was undetermined. This report provides the Ministry response to the OCYA recommendations aboutabout three key areas related to practice and processes concerning services to vulnerable children in Alberta.
