DHS wants more scrutiny

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- The Iowa Department of Human services is creating a team of medical professionals to investigate suspicious injuries and try to stop preventable child abuse.

The agency's director says the team will review instances where there is disagreement over the cause of the child's injuries. The case of a Des Moines infant injured in June raised questions over whether professionals responded appropriately to signs of abuse before serious injury happens.
