Emergency Care

Flags: flexpage,


      The school nurse is responsible only for the emergency care of injuries and sudden illnesses that occur while the student is in school. The nurse is not available to diagnose or treat students who come to school  with prior injuries or illnesses except in special cases when a child is under medical care and with the physician's written orders. When at all possible, parents are responsible for transporting the ill or injured student to his/her home, the doctor or the hospital.
