Health Office Staff Role in Assessing Students for Reported Self Injury

Health Office Staff Role in Assessing Students for Reported Self Injury
 
Rationale: Health Services staff will participate in the evaluation process of any student who has been reported to have sustained a self-inflicted injury.

Procedure:

If the student initiates the visit to health office to seek help and/or evaluation and care of self-inflicted wounds, the HSA/Nurse will:
  •  provide the appropriate first aid treatment
  • notify counselor (high school) or psych (elementary school)
  • Begin filling out the Self Injury form
  • Notify administrator who will review record and recommend or not recommend an extended inquiry.
  • Chart in Infinite Campus the student’s visit, complaint, treatment and follow up.


If a student is sent by a Teacher, counselor or psychologist for evaluation of injury, the HSA/Nurse will:
  • Provide the appropriate first aid treatment
  • If not already started, fill out the Self injury form
  • Refer back to counselor/psych
  • Notify administrator who will review record and recommend or not recommend an extended inquiry.
  • Chart visit in Infinite Campus
  • Make a copy of the Self Injury paperwork and keep in health file and in the TMT file in the administrator’s office or school records room.  Check with Principal.


The original forms are sent to Student Services.
 
 
The TMT Handbook and all TMT forms are located on the Dysart web site under Student Services> Threat Assessments.
