Disability Scoop (1/6, Jordan) reports the Justice Department “says the Iowa Department of Human Services [DHS] and staff at the Glenwood Resource Center violated residents’ 14th Amendment rights by providing inadequate care and experimenting on them without their knowledge or consent.” The Justice Department “continues to investigate whether Glenwood has violated the Americans with Disabilities Act at the facility in western Iowa.” A 63-page report on the matter released by the Iowa DHS in late December “includes four pages of remedies that the Justice Department says it will work with the DHS to implement.”
