    It doesn't surprise me that DHS was sued. DHS makes a lot of mistakes and REFUSE to correct them or even admit to them! They claim they follow their "mandates" to the letter, yet one can go through ANY case file and find NUMEROUS deviations from mandates by caseworkers AND none of them will admit it, they just scurry around and cover it up! DHS is corrupt, they protect the WRONG people! UMATILLA COUNTY is the WORST! AND they are facing more Lawsuits as I right this. Governor Kitzhaber BETTER get a handle on DHS especially UMATILLA COUNTY!

  2. You are so right...only it is not just Umatilla County. Clackamas County is also notorious for ignoring reports of abuse. I know a baby who was placed in foster care for 2 weeks, during which time she lost 8 pounds, was never bathed, had severe diaper rash and had been hit on the head rupturing an eardrum. And they say they were checking on her!! Like you say, they all scurry around covering for each other. Write to the Governor's Accountability Office to put pressure on the agency and the gov.
