To ensure the health and well-being of our students, a first aid certified representative is available during school hours to provide first aid treatment, limited emergency care, medication administration, and health education.
Most of the staff have a shared responsibility to administer first aid for any student they come in contact with and the majority of the staff members have been trained in First Aid. Whenever a student is injured at school or requires first aid, the student will be given immediate attention. Every effort will be made to contact the parents, either at home or at work. If necessary, the local ambulance service will be contacted to take the student to the emergency department at the local hospital, Gangnam Severance Hospital, Yonsei University 211 Eonjuro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul.
Medicines should always be provided in the original container as dispensed by a pharmacist and include the prescriber’s instructions for administration (approximate time) and dosage as well as the diagnosis or reason the medication is a need. The medicine with accompanying written statement must be clearly marked with the student’s name, correct dosage, and parent’s signature. Medicine will be kept in the nurse room during school hours. Students with asthma who are able to use their inhalers themselves are allowed to carry them with them.
It is very important that all families provide the school with emergency contact details, including mobile phone numbers, for use in the case of accident or injury.
The Confidentiality makes the health service is respected and ensured.
