Protective Services Team
The Protective Services Team (PST) identifies and treats children that are victims of abuse and neglect. The team’s goal is to ensure that all children served by the hospital are in a safe and healthy environment.
We train professionals, parents and the community about the prevention, identification and treatment of child abuse and neglect, including:
- Common triggers of maltreatment
- Recognizing abuse and neglect
- Stressors that may lead to child abuse
