All caregivers shall report any suspected physical abuse, sexual abuse, or neglect of a child to the agency or police as required by Minnesota Statutes, section 626.556. If a caregiver has reasonable cause to believe a child has died as a result of physical or sexual abuse or neglect, the caregiver shall report this information to the county medical examiner or coroner.
The provider shall inform the agency:
within 30 days of any change in the regular membership of the household within the day care residence or the addition of an employee who will regularly be providing care;
immediately of any suspected case of physical or sexual abuse or neglect;
immediately after the occurrence of any serious injury or death of a child within the day care residence. A serious injury is one that is treated by a physician.
