HIPAA Consent to Treat
Required for students who have medications in the clinic, will need chronic disease management, or who have health needs outlined by a doctor’s order while in school.
Our School Nurse program is staffed by nurses from Community Health Network and will provide limited services to all students, including but not limited to – screening for signs of illness, first aid/emergency care, referral to health providers in the community, nutrition services, health education, health screenings and immunization information. This is a School clinic and all records are maintained by the School. There is no charge to you for the services received.
If your child needs prescription or over the counter medicine, management of chronic health conditions or any health needs requiring a physician order while in school, your written permission is required, in advance. In an emergency situation, to prevent death or serious injury, the School Nurse and School staff will act to prevent such injury or death and stabilize the situation.
