Teen In Custody Dispute Moved From Children’s Hospital
BOSTON (CBS Connecticut) _ A West Hartford teen who has been the subject of a medical/custody dispute in Massachusetts left Boston Children’s Hospital Friday, according to the Boston Globe, which reports she was taken to a residential facility in Framingham.
After the hospital and her parents disagreed over the care of 15-year-old Justina Pelletier, the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families took temporary custody, prompting a court battle over the teen’s custody and care.
The Globe reports that though she is now in a residential program at Wayside Youth and Family Support Network, Boston Children’s Hospital will continue to oversee her care until a new care team is named. It’s not clear how long she will remain at the facility.
