Medical and Mental Health
Children live healthier lives when medical care is accessible and convenient. Little Flower provides individualized medical services designed to meet each child’s and family’s unique needs. These plans are developed through the continuous and coordinated care provided by the Little Flower medical staff in collaboration with pediatricians as well as specialists when indicated.
On admission into the Foster Care program, children are assigned a Nurse Case Manager and a Primary Care Physician (PCP) in the area they reside to serve as that child’s Medical Home. The nurses oversee well-child clinics, assist the pediatrician with routine physicals, and coordinate referrals to specialists when recommended. The Medical Department provides 16-hour nursing coverage daily, medication administration, and routine medical treatment for residents at the Residential Treatment Center.
Our adolescent population receives confidential reproductive health counseling and assistance with referrals as needed. Additionally, our team coordinates pharmacy and laboratory services to children and families in care.
Good dental health complements good medical health. Primary dental services coordinated by our Medical department include:
- Oral examination
- Prophylaxis (dental cleaning)
- Carries risk assessment
- Fluoride treatment
