MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- More than 8000 Tennessee children needed a foster home this past year. The State had to place many of them in temporary care because there weren’t enough foster families to meet the demand.
Memphis based Youth Villages found homes for more than 150 mid-state children over the past year. The agency begins twice weekly training classes for prospective foster parents Thursday evening in Mufreesboro.
Youth Villages spokesman Blake Bohanan says new foster parents are provided with extensive training and ongoing 24-7 support.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Three Tennessee clinics have received subpoenas for documents related to drugs from a Massachusetts specialty pharmacy linked to a fungal meningitis outbreak last year.
The subpoenas were sent to St. Thomas Outpatient Neurological Center in Nashville, Specialty Surgery Center in Crossville and the PCA Pain Care Center in Oak Ridge. They were issued by attorneys representing patients in a consolidated federal lawsuit against New England Compounding Pharmacy Inc. in Framingham, Mass.
