Medical Emergencies

My staff and I have First Aid, Child CPR, and HIV/Aids/Blood Borne Pathogens Prevention training. Minor cuts, bruises, and scrapes will be treated. Parents will be notified upon arrival. With some minor injuries parents will be called to help decide whether the child should go home. In the event of a serious injury or emergency, I will call 911 and administer first aid or CPR if needed. I will then notify you as soon as possible and tell you where your child is being treated. If injury results in medical treatment or hospitalization, I am required to immediately call and submit an "Injury/Incident Report" to my Department of Social and Health Services Licenser and child's social worker, if any. You will be given a copy.
