Does it count as medical neglect?

Q: My 13yr old is in temporary care of department of social services til feb 2015 she was injured in residential care while being left unattended and hurt her ankle the emergancy room doctor directed staff to have her on bed rest and stay off the foot for 3 days but the staff didnt follow medical attention and still sent her to school the very next day and had her walking around on it.

A: David's Answer: Possibly - but it depends in part on the reason why they did this & also whether they received subsequent medical advise. -- David Bliven, Westchester Family attorney (
