Contact with all household members should be documented. However, only initials should be utilized when making reference to children in Division custody. This is true of all current and previous placements in the household. Resource family records are not confidential and may be requested by the public but information on children in Children’s Division custody is confidential. Using initials only will help to maintain confidentiality of the children in Division custody.
A list, Placement Report for Resource Home Record, CD-104 should be maintained in the front of the file with the names, placement and removal dates of all children in the resource family home. This form will be removed prior to the records being made public.
