Description:
In June 2007 a mother of a 14 year old boy who died by suicide following the issue of a secure care order made a complaint to the Ombudsman for Children’s Office (OCO). The mother was unhappy with how the Health Service Executive (HSE) handled the care of her son since 2005. The investigation was based on two complaints. The first complaint relates to the services provided by the Health Service Executive Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). The second complaint relates to the circumstances around the handling of her son’s care by the Health Service Executive Child Care and Social Work Service. Having undertaken a preliminary examination under Section 8 of the Ombudsman for Children Act, 2002 (the Act), the Ombudsman for Children determined that this matter warranted further investigation pursuant to section 10(1)(a)(ii) and section 13(2) of the Act. This investigation has now been completed and a statement outlining the results of the investigation has been sent to the complainant, the HSE, the Minister for Children and the Independent Review Group on Child Deaths.
