Court Review – Medical Care

At placement review and permanency hearings, the court reviews the child’s healthcare including:

  • medical condition and any diagnostic tests
  • medical treatment and child’s progress
  • emergency medical care, injury or acute illness
  • whether the child is receiving appropriate medical care
  • activities the child should avoid (for his or her safety) or activities the child should adopt (like a healthy lifestyle for example, which may include 30 minutes of outdoor activity.)
