In Kansas, Russell daycare license suspended | Shaken Baby Syndrome

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment on Friday reportedly announced it had suspended the license of a Russell daycare provider.
The suspension, reportedly issued Thursday, affects the daycare home operated by Heather Ragene Ross.
The order reportedly cites a June 25 incident involving possible child abuse as the reason for the suspension.
"A 4-month-old infant was transported to a Wichita hospital due to injuries consistent with abuse and shaken baby syndrome," the KDHE order states. "An investigation into the cause of the injuries indicated that the injuries occurred at the licensee's day care home."
Russell Police Chief Jon Quinday reportedly said his department was notified of the incident by staff at St. Francis-Via Christi Regional Medical Center in Wichita.
"We conducted an investigation and forwarded that information to the Russell County attorney for review," he said.
Quinday reportedly said the department also notified KDHE.
