Children’s Medical Care
Children will be seen for routine sick and well child care at the Birmingham Health Care for the Homeless Pediatric Clinic (BHHPC), the Maternal Infant Network at University Hospital (MIN) Clinic, Children’s Hospital, or the Jefferson County Public Health Clinic. At all of these resources they will also receive vision, hearing, and dental care.
Children needing specialized care will be referred to the appropriate community resource. Coordination of children’s services will be a function of case management, the child development staff, and the nursing staff. Separate records documenting service delivery will be kept on all children. These services, including medical care, will be available for all of the women’s children who are in residence with her. In addition, referrals will be made as needed for non residential children of clients up to are seventeen (17).
