(A) Before the child receives child care services, the county department of job and family services (CDJFS) shall ask each caretaker if the child has a special need or health condition which may require special treatment or actions. If a special need or health condition is known or suspected, the CDJFS shall require the caretaker to complete the JFS 01928 "Medical/Physical Care Plan" (8/2008), which will then be given to the provider. The provider shall review the information, assure that he or she understands the plan, receive training if required, have the form signed as needed and maintain a copy in the child's file.
(1) The plan shall be reviewed by the caretaker at least annually and updated as needed.
(2) The plan shall be on file with the provider or at the home of a child receiving in-home aide services by the first day of attendance or upon confirmation of a special need or health condition.
(B) The provider must be trained by a caretaker or certified professional before being permitted to perform medical procedures or other action needed for a health condition or special need. There shall be a trained caregiver onsite at all times whenever a child with a medical or physical care plan is present.
(C) If the CDJFS suspects that a child has a special need or health condition, the CDJFS can require a physician's statement within a designated timeframe.
