LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Lawyers for a Lafayette group home whose license was revoked last month have filed an appeal with the Louisiana Department of Social Services.
The state license for Harmony Center's Vermilion Group Home was pulled after an October inspection.
DSS said it found children were improperly supervised, residents' medical problems were not being handled in a timely manner and the facility had maintenance and structural problems.
In a letter of appeal, lawyer Gregory Frost wrote the home denies all 10 deficiencies cited by the state.
DSS spokesman Trey Williams tells The Advocate a hearing is scheduled for Dec. 14 before an administrative law judge.
