Description

In a 2010 settlement agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice, Georgia agreed to move all mental health and developmentally disabled patients out of state facilities and into community care. The 2013 death of a 12-year-old developmentally disabled girl in community care lead to this investigation that ultimately reveals hundreds of unexpected patient deaths. http://chronicle.augusta.com/latest-news/2015-03-21/girls-death-among-500-one-year-community-care
