Specially trained Medical Examiners perform a comprehensive head-to-toe exam to determine and document a child’s health and safety. These medical assessments may include drug screening for children endangered by exposure to drug use, distribution, or manufacturing; and/or referrals for sexually transmitted infection (STI) lab testing when applicable . With the training required to identify and diagnose signs of abuse, Medical Examiners use their findings to make recommendations to law enforcement, child protective workers and family members.
