Troubled Guardian program

A series of article by the Orlando Sentinel about Florida’s guardian program.

“Florida law allows a guardian to be appointed by a judge for minors and adults with mental or physical disabilities, who are known as wards. The guardian makes all the determinations for the ward, including legal, financial, estate, housing and medical decisions.”

A judge is seeking the removal of a guardian from close to 100 cases after finding she “abused her powers” by requesting that incapacitated clients not receive medical treatment if their heart or breathing stopped — without permission from their families.”
