Foster Parents; Did you know?
The drugging of American children?
3 of 7.
We are researching a dangerous situation in America regarding innocent children removed from their homes and placed in the Foster Care System. Babies, toddlers and children being diagnosed with disorders at an alarming rate prescribed dangerous, mind-altering psychotropic drugs.
Legal & Illegal Drugs; What is the difference in the meanings of legal and illegal drugs; illegal drugs are drugs people are not allowed to have, and if a person in possession of illegal drugs is caught they are punished. If a foster parent, a caregiver, put in charge of the psychotropic drugs they are required to distribute to the children in their care although these dangerous drugs are classified as illegal drugs, become acceptable as prescribe medication to give to the children. Have we grasped the meaning?
So the only difference between legal and illegal is a prescription written to the person they are being issued to? It would then be illegal for foster parents to have them in their possession, or give them to anyone else. Errors in dosage would then put the foster parent in danger of prosecution, this is done without training of any kind? Only qualified persons with sufficient training can distriblute medications in medical facilities?
Foster parents; are you at risk? Read Your Responsiblity & Medications. Part 1 / Part 2 / Part 3 / Part 4 / Part 5 / Part 6.
Inconsistency #1; we have laws that prevent cigarettes and/or alcohol from being be sold to people younger than 18 years yet dangerous drugs are acceptable?
This is a direct quote from that website;
“And yet, despite these dangers, many school systems actually work with government agencies to force parents to drug their children, threatening those who refuse with the possibility of having their children taken from the home unless they cooperate”
Another website is quoted to say;
“According to a number of foster care experts who spoke with Politics Daily, children in foster care, who are typically concurrently enrolled in Medicaid, are three or four more times as likely to be on psychotropic medications than other children on Medicaid. Alarmingly, many of these drugs are medically prohibited for minors and dangerous to the children taking them. Often young patients under state supervision are also prescribed three or four high-risk drugs at a time — all paid for by Medicaid”.
- Questions; would this be taking place if the agencies were responsible for paying for the drugs these children are placed on instead of the state Medicaid program.
Facts; the agencies receive funds for each “ward of the court”, and receive substantial increases in federal funds when foster children are labeled special needs as is the case when diagnosed with disorders, and prescribed medications.
Since the agency, is rewarded for diagnosing, or labeling our children shouldn’t they be responsible for supplying the drugs rather than the state Medicaid program?
The pocket lined should be the pocket billed.
