No, they can't. Have you ever heard of HIPPA?

I was talking about the original Tufts doctor, which is why I specified that I was talking about the original diagnosis. But it's interesting that your mind went there instead of to what I actually wrote.

Give me a HIPPA lecture, this outta be good I've sat thru more of those than I care to admit to, but go ahead, and tell me more. Does the state have custody of the child at this point? or do the parents? They can release whatever they want. I've done more than just hear about this thing called HIPPA.


and who says the first diagnosis was wrong? who says the 2nd one was right? where is the proof this child is getting better and who do they have to show? maybe they are both wrong? What did the court say?

This is the crux....and I just don't know.

There are some really bad parents out there...and I do NOT want to live in a society where we turn our backs and say well, they are the parents so they get the only and final say ALWAYS.

HOwever, I also have a chronically ill brother with and extremely rare disease and have first hand knowledge how hard a parent has to fight and advocate sometimes. I understand that many drs really do have a god complex. I personally do NOT follow a standard medical protocol with myself or my children and do many things that are not the "norm". Someone on the outside should not be able to trump the parents except is VERY extreme circumstances ....and I have no idea where that line is or how to really prove it.

for her to be released. I just wish there was more info. Like this article states the parents have changed enough to allow their daughter to come home. Ok, that's all well and good, but how did Brittany change? Is she better? How did that year locked up in your psych ward affect her positively? I mean they basically said the parents were the cause and the other doctors were wrong, she better have gotten better, but I guess the sad fact is we'll never know.

The parents don't say anything other than what they want them to say, or she'll be taken again. Not saying there is anything more to say, but even if there was, we'd never hear it.

Yes, I agree with what you are saying! It sure doesn't LOOK like she's gotten better and she had no friends, no family, no schooling... NOTHING for over a year. I can't figure out how they did better than the abuse the parents and other doctors were accused. BUT that's speculation I suppose.

I suspect there will be lawsuits. BCH already has a few lawsuits for the exact same thing from other families
