Court properly found minor medically neglected as mother failed to have minor undergo recommended follow--up blood screening to determine if she had sickle cell disease or merely the trait, as finding was supported by medical records and testimony of veteran public health nurse and experienced caseworker. Court properly found minor's sibling neglected, based partly on anticipatory neglect (given finding of medical neglect as to sister), and also based on injurious environment given father's threatening remarks to caseworker. (HOFFMAN and ROCHFORD, concurring.)
