GENDER SPECIFIC PROGRAM
MEDICAL PROCEDURE

The GSP will make every attempt to take care of all medical needs that time allows as long as it does not interfere with treatment goals. We use only local physicians, dentists etc to meet our medical requirements. We do not transport to other counties to meet medical needs unless referred by our current doctors.

Medical Screenings: Will occur within 5 business days after the date of placement, unless medical care is needed sooner. This screening is done to prevent possible transmission of common childhood communicable diseases and to identify any symptoms of illness, injury or maltreatment.

Physical Examination: No later than 60 days after the childs placement the GSP shall coordinate the childs comprehensive health care including hearing, eye and physical exam which will be completed by a licensed physician. If a youth is in placement more than one year, an annual physical examination shall be completed no later than 30 days from the anniversary date of the last comprehensive physical examination.

Vision Assessment:Will be performed during the physical no later than 60 days after placement unless a condition of vision impairment indicates an earlier need for examination or treatment. The child will be taken to a licensed optometrist or ophthalmologist.

Dental Assessment:Each child shall receive dental examinations no later than 180 days from the day of admission. Follow up procedures will be adhered to as suggested by the attending Dentist. Annual reexaminations will occur no later than 30 days from the anniversary date of the childs last dental examination. Treatment shall be provided whenever a dental condition indicates a need for treatment and will be performed by a licensed dentist.
