Review of Child Deaths November 2010 – May 2012
Respectfully Submitted April 4, 2013
Please note: This Report is the accumulation of 16 months, 2000 hours of work by a specially selected, independent, non-compensated Committee of Oklahoma citizens, including child experts. It is the best efforts of this committee, was developed through case review, clarifications by OKDHS staff, deliberations, and discernment. It is not a scientific review with statistical comparisons of demographics, conditions, incidences, etc. It is an honest effort of this Committee to provide our fellow Oklahomans with answers regarding accountabilities for the care and treatment of one of Oklahoma’s most vulnerable populations, our children.
