It is just a matter of waiting for a bed to open up. Ten weeks is not that long. He will get a bed in the next 6 weeks I bet.

With the SAFP reference, I am presuming this to be a placement from the County. In such an instance, it is (as noted) a case of waiting for bedspace to open up. The holiday period slows things up but you should have seen some movement now that we are beyond the first of the year.

Other issues that can come into play are cases where there is some manner of medical situation that may have someone questionable for certain SAFP facilities. Some have different levels of care.
