Critical Incident

Purpose:

The purpose of the Critical Incident Review process is to review cases to determine if something could have been done differently to prevent the fatality or near fatality of a child. The reveiw process will focus on children that are "known" to our Child Welfare System, this means any child or family that we have had prior contact with, either through Child Protective Services (CPS), a Youth Services (YS) intake Assessmet , or and open case within the last 12 months. The review process will look at practice, policy, and training to see if there are areas that, if improved, could have prevented the death or severe injury to the child. Recommendations will be made from the review team for a Plan of Action.
