In this paper we examine a Finnish child protective service software Nappula. We point out some of the problems with the system in relation to the information stored and used. It shares some of the problems which are prevalent in patient information systems without exactly being one. Some of these problems include, but are not limited to privacy problems and a lack of possibility of correcting data in certain situations, amongst other ethical issues. We point out that the system has issues which cannot be justified in accordance to what the values of child protective services, social services, and the society are.
