(f) Neglects the child. Within the context of the definition of "harm," the term "neglects the
child" means that the parent or other person responsible for the child's welfare fails to supply the
child with adequate food, clothing, shelter, or health care, although financially able to do so or
although offered financial or other means to do so. However, a parent or legal custodian who, by
reason of the legitimate practice of religious beliefs, does not provide specified medical
treatment for a child may not be considered abusive or neglectful for that reason alone, but such
an exception does not:
1. Eliminate the requirement that such a case be reported to the department;
2. Prevent the department from investigating such a case; or
3. Preclude a court from ordering, when the health of the child requires it, the provision of
medical services by a physician, as defined in this section, or treatment by a duly accredited
practitioner who relies solely on spiritual means for healing in accordance with the tenets and
practices of a well-recognized church or religious organization.
(g) Exposes a child to a controlled substance or alcohol. Exposure to a controlled substance or
alcohol is established by:
1. A test, administered at birth, which indicated that the child's blood, urine, or meconium
contained any amount of alcohol or a controlled substance or metabolites of such substances, the
presence of which was not the result of medical treatment administered to the mother or the
newborn infant; or
2. Evidence of extensive, abusive, and chronic use of a controlled substance or alcohol by a
parent when the child is demonstrably adversely affected by such usage.
As used in this paragraph, the term "controlled substance" means prescription drugs not
prescribed for the parent or not administered as prescribed and controlled substances as outlined
in Schedule I or Schedule II of s. 893.03.
(h) Uses mechanical devices, unreasonable restraints, or extended periods of isolation to control
(i) Engages in violent behavior that demonstrates a wanton disregard for the presence of a child
and could reasonably result in serious injury to the child.
(j) Negligently fails to protect a child in his or her care from inflicted physical, mental, or sexual
injury caused by the acts of another.
(k) Has allowed a child's sibling to die as a result of abuse, abandonment, or neglect.
(l) Makes the child unavailable for the purpose of impeding or avoiding a protective
investigation unless the court determines that the parent, legal custodian, or caregiver was fleeing
from a situation involving domestic violence.
(33) "Institutional child abuse or neglect" means situations of known or suspected child abuse or
neglect in which the person allegedly perpetrating the child abuse or neglect is an employee of a
private school, public or private day care center, residential home, institution, facility, or agency
or any other person at such institution responsible for the child's care.
