Comments:Help on this term

Children admitted to care includes all children admitted to the care of the Minister/Chief Executive for the first time during the reporting period, as well as children returning to the care of the Minister/Chief Executive after exiting more than 60 days previously. Children with an ongoing care arrangement from a previous reporting period are not counted as being admitted to care in the current reporting period.

Children admitted to the care of the Minister/Chief Executive more than once during the reporting period should be recorded only once in the National Out-of Home Care file, irrespective of the number of times they were admitted.

Health check items should be reported for the first admission during the current reporting period.
