Hospital Information


DISPLACED LOUISIANA AND MISSISSIPPI CITIZENS IN TEXAS, DID YOU KNOW?

Regarding nursing home relocations….The Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services is coordinating the use of available nursing facility beds on an as needed basis. Several residents of Louisiana facilities have already relocated to nursing facilities in Texas. The Area Agencies on Aging are providing information on shelter and other assistance. For a directory of Area Agencies on Aging, go to http://www.dads.state.tx.us/contact/aaa_directory.html.

Regarding children in residential treatment facilities and foster care……The Department of Family and Protective Services is expediting the issuance of a license for a residential treatment facility in Corpus Christi to serve children in a New Orleans facility with serious behavioral problems. Forty-nine children from this facility are currently housed in a school gymnasium in Baton Rouge. In addition, families and facilities in Louisiana serving foster children have contacted DFPS requesting assistance. To meet this need, DFPS is identifying available spaces in Day or Residential Care facilities, and they are encouraging and assisting providers to serve displaced children. DFPS will actively monitor placements in foster homes or facilities to ensure the safety of these children.
