Suspected Child Abuse - Requirements for Mandated Reporters

Mandated reporter training is available ( to ensure compliance with Maine law (32 MRS §4011-A, Chapter 1071, Sub-Chapter 2) which requires that physicians immediately report or cause a report to be made to the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) when the physician knows or has reasonable cause to suspect that a child has been or is likely to be abused or neglected or that a suspicious child death has occurred.

Additionally, Maine law requires that physicians file a report with DHHS if a child under 6 months of age or otherwise non-ambulatory exhibits evidence of the fracture of a bone, substantial bruising or multiple bruises, subdural hematoma, burns, poisoning or injury resulting in substantial bleeding, soft tissue swelling or impairment of an organ. More specific, detailed information is outlined within the online training itself.

This law does not require the report of injuries occurring as a result of the delivery of a child attended by a licensed medical practitioner or the reporting of burns or other injuries occurring as a result of medical treatment following the delivery of the child while he or she remains hospitalized following said delivery.

The Board encourages all licensees to participate in this important training.
