Term: Substantiated Child Maltreatment
Last Updated: 2007-12-12
A case is considered substantiated if the balance of evidence indicates that abuse or neglect has occurred . Alternatively, a case is suspected if there is not enough evidence to substantiate maltreatment, but maltreatment cannot be ruled out. Lastly, a case is unsubstantiated if the balance of evidence indicates that abuse or neglect has not occurred.
