Justice Department Reaches Settlement to Improve Conditions at a Nebraska Developmental Center
Date:6/30/2008

e Chung Becker, Acting Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights. "We are very pleased that we were able to work cooperatively with the State to arrive at a resolution that will ensure that the rights of persons with developmental disabilities are protected. We applaud the State of Nebraska for its innovative efforts to more effectively serve BSDC residents and ensure their health, safety, and welfare."

"The ability to expeditiously fashion this comprehensive agreement, reflects the importance both State and Federal authorities place on the dignity of care provided to all in need," said Joe W. Stecher, U.S. Attorney for the District of Nebraska.

The remedial agreement represents a negotiated resolution of the Justice Department's investigation that would not have been possible without the cooperation and commitment of the Governor of Nebraska, Dave Heineman, the head of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, Christine Peterson, and the director of the State Division of Developmental Disabilities, John Wyvill.

CRIPA authorizes the Attorney General to investigate conditions in certain institutions owned or operated by, or on behalf of, state or local governments. These institutions include nursing homes, residential facilities serving people with mental retardation or other developmental disabilities, mental health facilities, jails, prisons, and juvenile correction facilities. CRIPA's focus is on systemic deficiencies rather than individual, isolated problems.
