The school nurse is responsible for protecting and promoting the health of all students. This is accomplished by: maintaining student health records; assessing for communicable disease and arranging for the treatment and exclusion of these students; providing proper emergency care for all people injured or ill at school; serving as a health education resource to students and staff; including classroom teaching on health topics; administering medication upon physician’s and parent’s request; developing individualized care plans and emergency plans for students with medical issues; protecting the privacy of protected health information; identifying and reporting suspected or actual child abuse cases; training staff annually on universal precautions and blood borne pathogens; reviewing immunization records and ensuring compliance with State and Federal regulations; providing vision and hearing screening; and providing developmental assessments, including height and weight analysis.
