My little brother lived there and was one of the main inspirations in building childrens country home. He had been asphyxiated at birth after a perfect full term pregnancy, by a doctor who was neglegent. We thought for sure this was the place for him to be and that it would be a great opportunity for him to learn and grow with 24 hour care. he wasnt able to walk, talk, suck, swallow, see or hear but knew we loved him and when we were near he would make sounds.He had to be suctioned with a machine, and also was unable to lift up his head. A new nurse was trained and hired to care for him and was specifically told not to leave him unattended on his stomach, as he was unable to lift up his head. But thats just what happened. He had been placed on a thick blanket on his tummy and left unattended, once more asphyxiating, causing him to temporarily pass away, until paramedics were called to ressucitate him. But just a few days later in the hospital his heart stopped and he passed away
