Crackdown on Care: State Stands up for Developmentally Disabled

An interesting opinion piece from Syracuse's Post-Standard.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The state is finally getting tough with agencies that abuse the trust placed in them to care for people with developmental disabilities.

This month, the state Office for People With Developmental Disabilities started to publicly disclose those nonprofit organizations that have had serious problems maintaining an adequate level of care or financial viability.

It’s a terrific idea. All families of developmentally disabled people — indeed, all New Yorkers — need an early alert to know which agencies are not meeting standards.
