SCIS contracts nursing services through SinoUnited Health Clinic and has certified nurses on campus who are available during school hours and athletic events.
School Healthcare Guidelines
For minor accidents, bumps, and bruises, the nurses will treat the student and he or she will return to class. Parents will not be contacted unless follow-up is required. Should a child be physically ill, have a fever (over 37.2 degrees Celsius), or suffer a potentially serious injury, such as a significant bump to the head, parents will be contacted and are expected to come and pick up their child. If the parent cannot be contacted, the student’s emergency contact will be notified.
In the case of serious accidents on the school premises in which a child needs to be taken to the hospital, the parents will be contacted immediately and the student will be transported, unless inadvisable due to neck or back injury, to the nearest hospital where he or she can receive expatriate level care. A representative from the school will accompany the child and remain with him or her until a parent or guardian arrives to take responsibility. When the parent arrives, the school representative will depart after explaining all the relevant circumstances. Appropriate care will be given as required, even if the parents cannot be reached.
