We appreciate that OHCQ has made an effort to review the oversight deficiencies and to make recommendations. However, as the OHCQ report notes, they work in tandem with DHR to ensure appropriate care for children. Unfortunately, DHR has provided no public response to the problems identified at group homes. Although DHR has implemented new financial reporting requirements for all of their contracted providers, a similar review of procedures and recommendations for improvement should be conducted by DHR. In addition, public release of periodic progress reviews by both DHMH and DHR would help allay concerns about lack of transparency and lack of attention to the needs of our most vulnerable children.
