42. CPS didn’t allow an FLDS mother to be with her child, even though the child was hospitalized with a 104 degree fever and the child’s doctor had requested the mother’s presence.
One of the riveting reports written by a mental health worker describes this incident (see all reports by mental health workers):

This event haunts me still, and I cannot imagine such a heartless act.
