As you may know, responding to the needs created by the occurrence of SIDS and other infant deaths, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) implemented the Sudden Infant Death Program: Provision of Mandated Reporting and Bereavement Support initiative in 2002. Funded by the Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grant, the purpose of the program is to ensure compliance with the mandates of Ohio Revised Code 313.121, related to the reporting of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and the provision of support and bereavement services.
This email is being sent to you as a means to provide the latest information regarding the mandated infant death notification. There are three attachments included with this email:
- Copy of the Ohio Revised Code 313.121
