I am the non-offending parent in a CPS case in California. The social worker that has been assigned to the case is making decisions which are threatening my son's daily safety, including but not limited to trying to cancel a surgery he was scheduled to have for over a year.
Your remedy is not a restraining order. There's also too much missing from this story.
I think you need dependency court counsel.

...perhaps have the child's pediatrician call the social worker and 'professionally' explain the situation.
CPS is taking action to protect your child and you have no right to interfere with their actions. If you have a complaint the solution is to complain to their supervisor and obtain an order in dependency court relating to the welfare and best interest of the child. Once they are involved your rights become limited because of the statutory obligations they are mandated to perform.
