Mason’s transport to his new facility had to be arranged entirely by our hospital as “the DDA does not provide transport from a hospital”. This is truly unreal. Mason was brought to us, left for 3 weeks, and the DDA won’t even arrange for transport. This meant that we had to call for ambulance transport AND pay a security guard to go with him and a taxi ride back. How did Mason get from his prior foster home to Mason County? I presume that this was arranged and paid for by the DDA and did not involve an ambulance, restraints or medication. In addition, someone affiliated with the DDA arrived today with a bunch of Mason’s clothing that had been washed, not dried, and placed in a garbage bag. The support has been horrendous. I feel like banging my head against the wall.
