Parents of children with a disability are asking for the 'in loco parentis' rule set by the HSE to be abolished.
Parents of disabled children: HSE makes us prisoners in our own homes
The parents of disabled children discuss the HSE's "in loco parentis" rule which means they can't leave their own homes even though nurses are in the house #cblive pic.twitter.com/69fkxSkmj1

@ClaireByrneLive @SimonHarrisTD @HSELive @NiallCollinsTD Thank you to the Claire Byrne show for highlighting this issue. Families with children with complex medical needs are at breaking point, we need a break, we need to be able to leave the house. Abolish In loco parentis rule

Who brought in such a debilitating rule for parents 'in Lo co paraentis' : I take it to mean ' in place of the parent' that if a parent is absent there's a HSE nurse insitu to act in the parents absence. This needs to be ammended immediately for the sake of invisible carers !
