Brooklawn is a treatment center in Louisville, Kentucky. In 2022 the media reported that a child aged only 7-year-old had died at the facility.
When the cause of death was reported to be positional asphyxia it became clear that the guidelines the employees follow was very wrong. In the end, it is always the responsibility of the management and in the end the owners to secure that employees work using guidelines that does not bring risk of harm and death to the children, they have in their care.
It cannot be fun to be there as a child.
