Medically Fragile

A medically fragile child is one who, because of an accident, illness, congenital disorder, abuse or neglect, has been left in a stable condition, but is dependent on life sustaining medications, treatments, equipment, and has need for assistance with activities of daily living.

Medically Fragile Crosses all Diagnoses

Diagnosed medically fragile by a medical physician, this child may:

Have chronic health care conditions such as diabetes, oxygen dependency, cerebral palsy (CP)
Be a transplant recipient and require special health care support, such as tube feedings, suctioning, tracheotomy care, or a respirator
Have limited mobility and require special health care support due to paralysis or chronic disease
