Medical Emergencies


Tuesday, March 4, 2014

A medical emergency may occur anytime the school building is in use. Medical emergencies are those illnesses or injuries which require first aid and emergency backup to ensure the safety and health of the person(s) involved. The medical emergency may occur in the school, on school property or school buses, during a field trip, and other school-sponsored activities.

A medical emergency can include someone who is unconscious, gasping for air or not breathing; experiencing an allergic reaction, having chest pain, having uncontrollable bleeding, or any other symptoms that require immediate medical attention.
