The Division of Early Learning and Licensing and Administration (DELLA) requires licensed Child care providers to complete a report when a child in care has received emergency medical attention, has been hospitalized or if there has been a fatality.
To begin this form, the program will be directed to the Provider Hub.
Child care providers are required to complete the Online Injury Report within 24 hours of an incident. If a provider is unable to access the online system, you must use the paper form and submit the form to the Division of Early Learning and Licensing Administration (DELLA) within 24 hours of the incident.
Please visit our RESOURCES for additional information on Injury Reporting.
Other injuries not requiring medical attention can be documented using the Accident/Injury Report Form developed by each facility. Child care providers must ensure that parents are notified of ALL injury or accident reports.
In some cases, the local Child Protective Services office should be notified when an injury occurs. Examples include unexplained injuries, injuries that were not observed by an adult, an infant receiving the incorrect breast milk, near drowning, or burns.
Contact your licensing specialist for questions or assistance completing a report or refer to the following resources:
Child Care Injury Prevention - Falls
Falls are the number one cause of injury requiring medical care in child care facilities. With this information in mind, the Office of Early Childhood developed a resource, Injury Prevention - Falls: What Every Child Care Provider Should Know to provide child care programs with tips and other information regarding how to prevent and minimize the amount of falls that occur in child care environments.
