Description

Reporter Doug Donovan uncovered inadequate care and state oversight of group homes that care for the most vulnerable of citizens: disabled foster children. His investigation revealed that state contractor Lifeline Inc. had numerous problems that were unknown to regulators. After his initial story the state moved the children to another group home. However, Donovan revealed issues with the new provider, including employees who were dismissed for mistreating patients and who lacked specialized training.
