At the beginning of each school year all students’ health information is updated.
All admissions to the nurse’s office due to an injury or other reasons like fever, vomiting or abdominal pain etc., as well as the details of the treatments are recorded. Every case is considered individually and their complaints are carefully evaluated in the light of their past medical history and previous health records. The parent is contacted and informed when necessary.
In case of an emergency situation during school time, with the parents’ consent, the nurse in charge takes the injured or severely sick student to the allied hospital without delay. If the situation does not seem to require an emergency treatment, the parents are informed by our medical staff and may be advised to seek medical attention at their earliest convenient time.İn school accidents studens are treated in the hospital contracted up to TL 1,000
Flu like upper respiratory tract infections associated with fever, coughing, and sneezing etc. are very contagious and therefore spread easily among students, especially during winter and spring times of the schools. Bed rest and isolation at home is best for such students. Thus, when noticed, the medical staff may ask the family to collect the child from school and recommend them to be seen by their family doctor if necessary.
In conditions like headaches, gas pains, sore throats, pills such as paracetamols (Calpol, Parol, Minoset, İbufen) are given based on the health information form and parent’s consent.
During the school hours, our medical staff can give the doses of regular oral medications to your child as prescribed by your family doctor (except for “once a day” medications that can be taken
at home) with the supervision of his or her teacher. You will need to fill and sign the “Treatment Request Form” that clearly describes the names, doses and administration times of all medications. The form can be obtained from either the Nurse’s Office or Information Desk on demand.
Weight and height measurements are obtained regularly on demand of the parent. This allows monitoring of normal physical development and comparison of each individual’s parameters with normal percentiles of corresponding gender and age. Parents of the students that fall out of the normal range get informed via SMS and post.
The aim of the HSE (Health Safety Environment) department is to ensure that the students are happy, healthy and have the knowledge of how to behave as individuals when an illness befalls them.
