Our primary goal is to protect the health of our students, families, faculty and staff. Ways that you can help to minimize the spread of illness at your child’s school are: Teach your child about good hand washing and cough hygiene practices. Let the school nurse know if your child has a medical condition that could make them more susceptible to becoming ill. Discuss with your doctor additional measures that might reduce your families chance of becoming ill. Consult your school nurse about upcoming school based illness prevention programs and partnerships.
The parent/guardian should be made aware of what has happened and should know what hospital the child is being taken to. As the child is complaining that they cannot move there arm the staff should try not to move them as it may cause more pain or more damage could take place. The incident that was caused was bad example of not following rules & regulations. This is because the book shelf was placed in a sight of where children would run around and play. To prevent a situation like this from happening again the book shelf should be secured to a wall or not in an area where children are playing and running around.
Some of the signs of meningitis are signs of “severe headaches, photophobia, nausea and vomiting and joint pains.” http://www.meningitis.org/symptoms 7/4/14. When in the setting the immediate plan of action would be firstly reassure the child and isolate the child from the group and take them to a quiet place. The next part of the plan would be to send someone to ring up the emergency services and inform the child’s parents as soon as possible. In the event of an asthma attack you must stay calm and reassure the child while helping the child find a comfortable position. You should give the child’s blue relief inhaler and wait 5-10 minutes to see if the asthma attack has improved, if not you should phone for an ambulance after 10 minutes.
Picoult continues on this theme of “saving” by using Suzanne as Sara’s crutch, as she makes her coffee each morning and informs her of any missed phone calls. While in the hospital, Sara receives a call from Jesse’s principal informing her of Jesse’s suspension. On the car ride home she notices a bruise on his arm from a needle and assumes he has been using drugs. Jesse angrily explains how he has been donating blood that gave Kate platelets behind the family’s back, in order to “save” his sister. After two weeks in the hospital, Kate developed an infection that placed her in a coma on a respirator, which is “saving” her for the time being.
Task 1 links to learning outcome 1, assessment criteria 1.1 and 1.2. Write an explanation of: * what it means to have a duty of care in own work role * Duty of care is a legal obligation for an individual to adhere a standard of care to foresee any harm that my harm others * In my setting, we do a daily risk assessment inside and out to ensure the environment is safe to work in and children to learn in.

After we had arrived the nurses escorted us up the delivery floor and had strapped my wife into a fetal monitor to check our baby’s status. I was so worried that something might be wrong, that our baby girl would be in trouble. As I sat there listening to my baby girl I knew I was in for the ride of my life. I watched, with a concerned look while the doctor had manually broken my wife’s water. I felt so worried and sad because I didn’t know what I could do to comfort my wife.
Pediatrician can perform physical examination, measure vital statistics, take blood and urine samples, and prescribes certain medication for sick children. In order to make sure that the child/children are well taken care of, the doctor must be able to explain clearly enough for the parents(s) to know what type of medication to give the child, when to take the medication, and how much the child should take in order for that child to get well. In addition to being a pediatrician, you must form the ability of knowing how to cope with the children. In other words, pediatricians have to know how to make the child/children feel comfortable and not scared by gaining their trust. Letting them know that you want physically hurt them.
Local authorities Within in my own work settings as well as all child services we have guidelines to go by to ensure and keep on improving the safeguarding of the children: Child protection Health and safety Going on outings Visitors entering the building Risk assessments e.g. for example before we outside for outside playtime a member of staff will go outside and fill in a risk assessment sheet to make sure the gate is locked and there is no harmful piece objects outside before they play. In a unfortunate case when a child has been seriously hurt or even died a inquires and serious case reviews are called, there is a set-up of professional services such as social services have to go by the legsistration policies and procedure’s . Sadly sometimes the policies and procedures fall through and it is
All caregivers and parents should remain up to date on any possible toy hazard recalls and can find this information listed on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website. As all toddlers and even preschoolers put toys in their mouths, choosing toys requires a lot of testing for choking and suffocation hazards. The toy needs to be checked for small parts or pieces that may come loose and present a choking hazard. One way to test is to drop small parts through a paper towel tube, if it fits, the toys is too dangerous and should be removed from the play area. Typical wear and tear can also result in a toy that was once deemed sage to become a danger.
This is because it is part of the settings Safeguarding policy which is influenced by the ECM outcome; Stay Safe. This outcome forms origin in the Children Act 1989 which states that: “The welfare of the child is paramount.” (Bruce.T 2006 Page 66) Another influence which I have come to understand that legislation has an influence on settings is when dealing with accidents and injuries. In my setting I have dealt with a child who fell over and cut his knee. Because of my settings policy on accidents and injuries I had to go through the procedure of accompanying the boy to reception and filling out an accident form in the accident and minor injury book. This policy and procedure is a fundamental part of reporting any accidents as a result of the RIDDOR legislation.
