The final hours of Jeremiah Clark

Oct 7, 2010 10:24:00 PM - chicagotribune.com
For two days, a boy with profound disabilities grew mortally ill, yet no one at his care facility called a doctor. Not his case manager. Not a day nurse, and not his night nurse. As the third day dawned, another nurse finally called for help. But it was too late. Jeremiah became the most recent fatality in a pattern of harmful care at Alden Village North.

Nine-year-old Jeremiah Clark survived for years not being able to walk, talk, go to the bathroom by himself or eat without a feeding tube.
