(E) An agency shall require a JFS 01390 "ODJFS Medical Statement for Child Care Staff in Residential Facilities" (rev. 6/2001) to be completed by a licensed physician, physician assistant, clinical nurse specialist, certified nurse practitioner, or certified nurse-midwife within six months prior to employing any person who will have direct contact with children.

We are confused if this requirement strictly applies to staff of residential facilities -- or staff of agencies that offer residential programs. For example, does this apply to a foster care agency's case managers?

My interpretation of this part of the Rule; per the last section states "...any person who will direct contact with children." There is no difference between a commercial, agency, government facility. That would include supervisors that have "direct contact with children". This would include daily, weekly, monthly contacts. Again, this is my interpretation.
