In Florida and other States, babies / children have died or have suffered serious personal injuries while under the care of a day care center. In some instances, the cause of death was natural in that the condition or cause of death was unknown and unexpected. In other instances, a child was not properly supervised or cared for in the day care center. When a child dies in a day care center, there typically is an investigation and an autopsy to determine the cause of death, manner of death, and whether the death was preventable with more timely intervention or better supervision. A child can be put a risk in a day care center even during nap time if safety measures are not followed as to proper positioning of the infant / child during nap time. There are specific regulations in place in Florida as to nap time and other supervision. You can review these regulations at Florida Day Care Centers – Rules and Regulations – Frequently Asked Questions.
