(705 ILCS 405/2-19)
(from Ch. 37, par. 802-19)
Preliminary orders after filing a petition.
In all cases
involving physical abuse the court shall order, and in all cases involving
neglect or sexual abuse the court may order, an examination of the child under
Section 2-11 of this Act or by a physician appointed or designated for this
purpose by the court. As part of the examination, the physician shall arrange
to have color photographs taken, as soon as practical, of areas of trauma
visible on the child and may, if indicated, arrange to have a radiological
examination performed on the child. The physician, on the completion of the
examination, shall forward the results of the examination together with the
color photographs to the State's Attorney of the county of the court ordering
such examination. The court may dispense with the examination in those cases
which were commenced on the basis of a physical examination by a physician.
Unless color photographs have already been taken or unless there are no areas
of visible trauma, the court shall arrange to have color photographs taken if
no such examination is conducted.
