Clinic Information

School health clinic personnel provide a variety of services based upon the needs of the students in the individual schools and the educational level of the school health employee. Services include, but are not limited to:

  • Administration of medication

  • Case management

  • Acute health room care

  • First aid

  • Meeting emergency needs

  • Identification and follow up of chronic health conditions

  • Assistance with complex or chronic conditions

  • Health screenings

  • Referrals to appropriate local resources

  • Health counseling and consultation with a parent or guardian

Emergency health needs arise from injury, sudden illness or the progression of a new discomfort or symptom. The main role of the clinic staff is the management of the clinic. It is important for school personnel to respond quickly, to provide first aid when necessary and to minimize further injury and/or insult to the student while he/she is at school.

Health services are to be provided with respect for human dignity and the uniqueness of the student without regard to social or economic status, personal attributes or the nature of the health problem.

A STUDENT'S RIGHT TO PRIVACY SHALL BE SAFEGUARDED AT ALL TIMES BY JUDICIOUSLY PROTECTING INFORMATION OF A CONFIDENTIAL NATURE.
