Hull Clinic Information
Hull Middle Clinic
The school maintains a clinic for students. When students become ill or injured during the day, they should report it immediately to the teacher and request a pass to the clinic. Clinic workers will contact parents as situations require. For this reason, it is imperative that parents complete a Clinic Card at the beginning of school that includes emergency phone numbers. Clinic workers supervise the administration of medications, take temperatures, and administer emergency first aid when appropriate.
Taking medications during school hours is discouraged. Parents are asked to arrange medication schedules so that it is not necessary for medication to be taken at school. However, if the treating physician recommends such administration of the medication, then the parent must complete the Administration of Medication Request Form and return it to the school. This form asks for a specific length of time the medication is to be taken and instructions including dosage and time of administration. Prescription medications must be in the original prescription container and must be housed in the clinic. If medications must be given over a long period of time, then the Administration Request Form must be updated yearly. Students may not have prescription medications in their possession or share these medications with others.
Change in protocol for administering medication, Gwinnett County compliance.
The clinic will no longer supply Tylenol , Ibuprofen, etc . For students who may need these meds, parents will need to provide. Students requiring ANY medication at school must have a parent bring in the medication and documentation to the school and again this will include Ibuprofen, Tylenol, eye drops etc. All medication is stored and given in the clinic by our school nurse. If students need to have immediate medication (Ibuprofen, Tylenol, etc), we cannot give it to them unless we have written permission on file. PLEASE DO NOT SEND MEDICATION TO SCHOOL WITH YOUR CHILD
Administering over-the-counter medications at school is discouraged. If a student must have a medication in order to attend school, the parent/guardian must furnish a written request for the school to supervise administration of the medication. This request must include the student’s name, the name of the medication, dose and time to be administered. Medication must be kept in the clinic in the original container. If the medication is to be administered for more than one day, a Medication Request Form must be completed. Students may not have over-the-counter medications in their possession and may not share medications of any kind with fellow students.
