Health at BSJ
If an injury or illness occurs at school, the medical team will make every effort to give first aid treatment and contact parents as needed.
When a medical emergency situation exists, with approval from parents by phone, we will evacuate the student to Premier Bintaro Hospital or Pondok Indah Bintaro Jaya Hospital. The school nurse will accompany the student and meet parents at the hospital. If agreed by parents, emergency cases will also be monitored by International SOS Assistance Centre. If the parents or the emergency contact cannot be reached, the child may be taken for medical treatment to the nearest hospital at the discretion of the Principal or appropriate Head of School.
If your child is ill and unable to attend school, please inform your child’s teacher and the school medical team on the first day of the illness. It is helpful if the nature of illness is described, so the nurse can watch for general trends.
In order to prevent other students from being unnecessarily exposed to illness, parents are asked to keep the student home or pick up their child from school as soon as possible if he or she:
- Fever above 37.8oC.
- Pink or inflamed eyes
- Unknown Rash
- Excessive coughing or runny nose
- Short of breath or wheezing
- Diagnosed with a contagious condition such as chicken pox, conjunctivitis, Hand,Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD)
- Lice or nits in hair
A child should remain at home at least 24 hours with no fever, diarrhea or vomiting following an illness. A student with a communicable disease MUST be kept at home. A doctor’s clearance note is required in order for the student to return to school.
Prescribed Medication Administration
Students who need to take medication during school hours should have a written instructions from the treating doctor and/or parents must complete Parental Request for Medication Administered form and sent along with the medication.
Students are not allowed to carry medicine or take medicine by themselves at School, except those for a possible life-threatening condition which have been pre-approved by the school doctor or school nurse. Medication will be kept in the Medical centre.
Medical Support for School Trips
Every year the school conducts a residential trip for each year group or other educational trip. A school nurse and an ambulance will accompany each residential trip. During trips, school nurse are responsible to bring and keep students medical and allergies data. School nurses also provide first aid treatment if there is an illness or injury during trips. In case of an emergency, school nurse will arrange an evacuation to the nearest hospital.
With coordination with International SOS team, school also prepare a Trip Medical Support Plan (TMSP) for every school trip, including for the overseas trip with no medical personnel.
Please inform the School Doctor, should your child suffer from a severe food / medical allergy, in addition, to advise on any counteractive medication required e.g. Epi-pen.
