In re L.C., ___ N.C. App. ___, 800 S.E.2d 82 (2017)

Held: 
Affirmed in Part
  • GS 7B-101(15) defines a neglected juvenile in part as one who does not receive proper care, supervision, or discipline from a parent or who is not provided necessary medical care or who lives in an environment injurious to his or her welfare.
  • Findings about the respondent mother’s decision to leave her child in the care of an individual who was barred by a safety plan from having contact with the child and the respondent’s failure to timely obtain medical treatment for significant injuries that occurred when the child was in that individual’s care were supported by competent evidence and support a neglect adjudication. The 2-day delay in seeking necessary medical care supports the neglect adjudication.
