The state has put a nearly 90-year-old institution for troubled kids on probation as it sorts through allegations of abuse and inappropriate behavior of staff.

WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more on the latest discipline involving the Parmadale Institute.

Both the Ohio departments of Mental Health and of Youth Services have been investigating the Parmadale treatment center since July. That’s when allegations first  broke that an employee gave a teenage resident there money that she then used to have sex with another employee in a hotel.

The mental health department, which licenses Parmadale, put the treatment center on probation in early September. That means it can accept no new clients. And this week, the Ohio Department of Youth Services removed four girls it had placed at the center. It’s  unclear if other agencies also have removed children.

Catholic Charities runs the treatment center.  No one from the agency was available for an interview, but it released a statement from Parmadale Director J. Charles Ross saying it takes the probation very seriously, and that it’s has zero tolerance for misconduct. 

The statement says Parmadale fired the two employees and made a “timely” report to authorities.
