Medical Clinic

Medical Clinic

To ensure the safety and well-being of all our pupils and staff members, Huili School Hangzhou has an excellently equipped medical clinic which is run by fully-qualified nursing professionals.

If a child becomes ill during school time, parents will be contacted and asked to collect their child. If a child has sustained a minor injury, their parent will be contacted either by telephone or email, depending on the severity. In more serious cases of injury requiring hospital treatment, parents will be asked to either collect their child to take them to the hospital or, if required in an emergency, to meet one of the nurses with the child at a nearby hospital. If a parent wishes for their child to be taken to a different hospital, it is the responsibility of the parent to take the child there and not the responsibility of the school.

Exclusion from School

Some pupils have medical conditions that make them vulnerable to infections that could be serious to the majority of children. Parents should always keep the College updated with any health issues regarding their child(ren). Pupils with a potentially infectious disease should not attend school in order to avoid cross infection. Pupils suffering from diarrhea, vomiting or a fever of 37.5° C or above, need to be kept at home for an additional 48 hours after their last episode. Otherwise, a doctor’s certification that rules out the possibility of infectious diseases will be required.

Early Check out from School

If a child becomes ill during school time, parents will be contacted and asked to collect their child. If a child has sustained a minor injury, their parent will be contacted either by telephone or email, depending on the severity. In more serious cases of injury requiring hospital treatment, parents will be asked to either collect their child to take them to the hospital or, if required in an emergency, to meet one of the nurses with the child at a nearby hospital. If a parent wishes for their child to be taken to a different hospital, it is the responsibility of the parent to take the child there and not the responsibility of the school.

Medication in School

If your child has been prescribed medication by a doctor that needs to be administered during the school day you MUST send it into school, clearly labelled in Chinese with your child’s name, class, time, dosage and what the medication is for. This should be marked for the attention of the school nurse – your child’s teacher will pass this on to the Medical Clinic. A signed “Authorization for Administering Medication form” is needed as well.

Items such as an Epipen or Ventolin inhaler may be left in the care of the child or their class teacher/school nurse, to be on-hand immediately if required. It is the responsibility of parents to ensure their child and the school has the medication they need.

Emergency Medical Treatment

If your child requires urgent medical attention while under the care of the College, we will attempt to obtain your prior consent. However, should we be unable to contact you in the event of an emergency, parents have authorized (in the College Terms & Conditions) the Executive Master to consent on their behalf to the pupil receiving emergency medical treatment recommend by a doctor (including general or local anesthetic, operation or blood transfusion (unless you have previously notified us that you object to blood transfusions)). In addition, should it be necessary for the College to arrange for your child to see a doctor, it will be the parents’ responsibility to ensure that their child(ren) has adequate insurance or pay for the medical cost.

Medical Information Disclosure

Parents should note that prior to your child starting at the College, you must have completed and returned the medical form detailing any allergies or illnesses that your child(ren) may have. The school clinic will attend to any injuries or illnesses but sometimes we need to contact the pupil’s parent or guardian, so it is vital that we always have your current contact details.

Throughout the pupil’s time as a member of the College, the school nurse shall have the right to disclose confidential information about the pupil if it is considered to be in the pupil’s own interests or necessary for the protection of other members of the College community. Such information will be given and received on a confidential ‘need to know’ basis.

Allergy and Food Policy

The College recognizes that although most food intolerance produce symptoms that are uncomfortable, some people can suffer a severe food allergy with more serious consequences and in some instances these may even be life-threatening. A number of pupils in the school have severe or moderate allergies to a range of foods and substances.
The school therefore strives to maintain a nut-free environment and aims to ensure that none of the food provided, served or purchased within the school contain nuts. The school kitchen does not serve nut-based foods or use nut oils in any of its food preparations.

If parents are sending food into school, they should read the ingredient labels fully before sending in any item. If this requires Mandarin to English translation – we ask that the parents do this to avoid bringing nut traces onto the school premises.

As with any large institution, it is impossible to monitor 100% of foods on site at any time; at special events attended by pupils or with foods potentially served on school trips this becomes increasingly difficult. Therefore, discretion is advised to all pupils and families to monitor what they eat in circumstances on the occasions where the school cannot guarantee 100% food safety.
