New Mexico's University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education, Research and Service

Medically Fragile Case Management Program

About Us

We provide registered nurse case management/service coordination services statewide for children who are medically fragile and their families, and have since 1985.

In New Mexico, children who have a high level of dependence on medical technology such as ventilators, tracheostomies, oxygen, feeding tubes, dialysis, intravenous medication and require total care for all their daily needs are identified as medically fragile.

Medically Fragile Case Management Program (MFCMP), the Medically Fragile Waiver, and community services support families in their decision to care for their child who is medically fragile in their home.

Case Managers

The case managers use a family centered approach to care, and are advocates, informational sources, facilitators, and paperwork coordinators for families. Case managers support parents as team leaders who address the day-to-day care of their child.

The family is included in every aspect of care, from planning their child's daily care to policy development at a state level.
