I sprained my chest cavity and received Valium for thr pain and I took one out to take it, placed it on a towel on top of my kitchen counter and my daughter who is now 20 months old took the pill by accident. I called 911 and had her rushed to the hospital only to find out that she was fine and going to be okay. The doctors at the hospital were being very impatient as I forgot my daughters security item at home and she wasnt cooperating they were also mean to myself and her father as well and we had left to go home to grab her blanket (security item) then we were gonna go straight to a different hospital closer to our home. But unfortunately when we got home we were confonted by several police officers and an ambulance to transport her to the hospital we were already going to. (The doctor at the other hospital called Dcyf on us for leaving) now we are currently facing charges for child neglect. But we have agreed to a service plan with Dcyf including drugs testing and in homr family services as well as check ups every day. Will this charge be dismissed considering they obviously took it way out of hand and we are doing everything we were ordered to do?
Hospital judged would you go to bed and stay there for observation or’s or something for moving your daughter when she ingested this pill which what they’re complaining about
It may not be so obvious to them.(DCYF) They are investigating the negligent allowance of an infant to ingest a controlled substance. Your best ally is a private attorney, that you consult with , and retain, to assist you in navigating this process. Good luck to all of you.
