In-home day care shut down after child’s death
Question of the Day
PORTLAND, Mich. (AP) - An in-home day care in Ionia County has been shut down after a 5-month-old died last year after being put to sleep in an adult bed.
WOOD-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1gH85yk ) that the state found owner Diane Hillis violated regulations when someone working at her Portland home put Levi Spear to sleep Nov. 6. The Department of Human Services says the boy was found unresponsive and pronounced dead at a hospital.
An autopsy found that unsafe sleeping conditions were a factor in the death.
In a settlement agreement with the state, Hillis agreed to close her day care. She will be able to reapply for a license in two years. Hillis says she doesn’t believe that the baby’s sleep conditions contributed to his death. She tells the station she loved the child.
