FAIRFIELD DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH:
BUREAU for CHILDREN with MEDICAL HANDICAPS (BCMH)
All BCMH families are contacted by telephone or mailings by our BCMH nurse. Several BCMH children and families are visited on an ongoing basis, requiring multiple interventions to assist with their needs.
The BCMH nurse, Pat Garrett is available to assist families with problems and questions that arise.
The BCMH nurse also coordinated ODH sponsored specialty clinics. In 2005, the Health Department held three vision clinics for children under the age of 18 years and one hearing clinic for Help Me Grow enrolled children.
