The Florida DCF, Terri and Suncoast hospices.

From LifeNews:

The DCF filing says it received "30 detailed allegations of abuse, neglect or exploitation in a 34 page document received by the DCF hotline." The information came to the agency on February 18 and 21.

According to the St. Petersburg Times newspaper, which obtained the DCF report, there is no indication of who provided the state agency with the details of the abuse.

However, the allegations point directly to Michael and echo many of the concerns brought up by Terri's parents Bob and Mary Schindler over the last years of the legal dispute.

They involve Michael's failure to follow state law and provide an annual guardianship and medical care plan for Terri, failure to provide Terri with medical care and rehabilitative therapy as he told a court he would do, and lack of moving Terri from her bed which has caused her "severe contractures."

"The allegations ... go to the heart of whether abuse, neglect and/or exploitation has been perpetrated by the guardian such that any relief afforded by this court to this guardian prior to the conclusion of such investigation would be tragically misplaced," the petition said.

DCF adult investigations supervisor Michael Will wrote the paper.

Judge Greer will hear argument next week to decide if the March 18 day for Michael to starve Terri to death should be pushed back while the DCF investigates

I've always hated dark comedies. You know, the kind where the main character wades through continued acts of callousness, stupidity and incompetence that produces horrible results. It's even more depressing when they become real life.

Also of interest is the following document, a copy of which was emailed to me by Cheryl Ford, RN. Terri is currently being warehoused by her pretend husband, Michael Schiavo, at the Woodside Hospice, a facility owned by The Hospice of Florida Suncoast. The problem is, a hospice is solely for people who are terminal. Terri is not, and has never been terminal. So why was she allowed to be put in the hospice? Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Death Attorney George Felos, Michael Schiavo's lawyer was one of the Officers and Directors.

The Suncoast Hospice says (as of our phone conversation this morning) that George Felos is no longer an officer and director. But the fact remains that he was, and Terri is taking space in a facility that is supposed to be reserved solely for the terminal. She was at home with her family, but her so-called “husband” moved here there in preparation to murder her. Do the families of the other Suncoast Hospices know that their loved ones are in a place once overseen by one of those drooling over the chance to murder a helpless woman? Do they approve of the role the hospice is playing in assisting to execute Terri Schiavo?
