inconsistently saw SMG but did not establish consistent care to listen for SMG's cries out from danger;  while abuse was ongoing they improperly cut off communication from his mother whose instinctual ability to protect could have stopped the harm. Once reported  SCO  minimized their role. 4 month delay instead of prompt Sex abuse trauma therapy. SCO gross deviation of record keeping. Instead of 5 days required entries, they delayed record entries 30 up to 54 days after the events, thereby minimizing the recorded details of their failures and prevented monitoring supervision.
