Any individual with information to warrant suspicion of abuse of a child or an adult is required to notify a Clinical Manager immediately. Once the situation is assessed, appropriate authorities will be contacted which may include P&S Social Services, and/or the Social Worker on call (SFMC Social Services 966- 5028). If no response is received within 30 minutes repeat the call. In the case of a child, if no response is received within 1 hr, notify Child Protective Services at 362-5311.
Abuse of an Adult In the case of an adult, you should ask the patient, “Have you been abused?” If the answer is yes or with suspicious circumstances notify a Clinical Manager who will follow-up appropriately.
Safe Haven P&S serves as a Safe Haven which means any parent may relinquish the care of an infant less than 30 days old to a P&S employee in safety, anonymity, and without fear of prosecution. If a parent relinquishes a baby to you, you should take the child and immediately notify Administration. You and the baby will be escorted by Administration or Security to SFMC Emergency Department.
