Transport of a Student in an Emergency: JLCF

  • Students: J
Transport of a Student in an Emergency: JLCF
Updated

If a child is in immediate danger due to an injury or other potentially life threatening issue, the school nurse consultant or designee will call 911. If EMS determines that the student requires transportation to the nearest hospital and a parent is present, they will follow the ambulance to the hospital or make transportation arrangements if they choose to ride in the ambulance. If the parent/guardian is not present, the principal or designee will follow the ambulance to the hospital and wait for the parent to arrive.

The principal or designee will bring a copy of the students emergency and medical information (from Infinite Campus). The school nurse consultant or designee will communicate the destination (hospital) of the injured child to the parent. If the parent is unable to get to the hospital or cannot be reached, the school will communicate with the school nurse consultant to ensure that an individual identified in Infinite Campus as an “emergency contact” is contacted. If the parent is unavailable or unable to get to the hospital the school nurse consultant or designee will make all attempts to reach an emergency contact listed in IC. School personnel must stay with student until parent or emergency contact arrives. The health aide or designee will submit a 27J incident report. An administrator or counselor and the school nurse consultant will contact the parent for follow up within 18 hours of being transported from the school or event to the hospital. 27J Schools are not responsible for costs associated with transport and will follow directives to use emergency transport based on recommendations from first responders in the event 911 is called.
