Group Home Memos Allege Neglect and Insubordination

HARTFORD, Conn. -- A series of internal memos allege additional problems at the Humanidad group homes for developmentally disabled people in Greater Hartford, ranging from staff insubordination to neglectful care.
In one instance, in October 2010, a supervisor arrived in the morning at a group home on Grandview Terrace in Hartford and found a third-shift worker entangled on a pull-out bed in the living room with her half-naked boyfriend, according to documents obtained by The Courant.
Finding the house dark, and knowing that the third-shift worker was required to stay awake, the supervisor called Hartford police. The officer, in his report, notes the supervisor's concern that clients "had not been put into fresh clothing after fouling themselves.''
