Accident, Illness, Incident & Emergency Policy & Procedures.

Aim.

Just For Fun is committed to promoting good health and to dealing efficiently and effectively with illnesses and emergencies that may arise and relate to both children and staff.

We request that parents/carers sign their Child Medical Record consent form to give permission for their child to receive treatment in the event of accident, illness, incident or emergency at the Club and in the event of a major incident for the child to be removed to hospital.

Just For Fun always has a trained first-aider on duty and a first aid box on site.

All accidents, incidents, illnesses and emergencies will be recorded in detail in the Accident / Incident book for parents/carers to read and sign and have a copy.

Minor Accident. Illness or Incident or Emergency.

  • A first aider will make an appropriate decision on any action or non-action required. If the child does not need hospital treatment the child will be treated at Just For Fun, may be returned to activities but be kept under supervision for the remainder of the session.
  • The event will be logged in the Accident & Incident book for the parent/carer to sign with details of any treatment given.
  • If the injury/illness is such that first aid treatment seems inappropriate but the condition does not warrant hospitalisation, the parent/carer will be contacted immediately and asked to collect their child. Until they arrive, the child will be kept under supervision and as comfortable as possible. The event will be logged in the Accident & Incident book for parent/carer to sign.

All accidents, incidents, illnesses and emergencies will be recorded in detail in the Accident / Incident book for the parents to read and sign and have a copy.

 

Major Accident, Illness or Incident Emergency.

  • A first aider will make an appropriate decision on any action or non-action required. He/she will assess whether the child needs to go straight to hospital or whether they can safely wait for their parent/carer to arrive.
  • If the child needs to go to hospital, an ambulance will be called and the parent/carer will be contacted. A member of staff will accompany the child to hospital and will consent to medical treatment being given only if the Childs Emergency Medical Record consent form has been completed and signed by the parent/ Carer.
  • If the child does not need to go to hospital but needs to go home the parent/carer will be contacted to collect their child. Serious accidents will be reported to Ofsted and  the CSF Children’s Social Care Services.

All accidents, incidents, illnesses and emergencies will be recorded in detail in the Accident / Incident book for the parents to read and sign and have a copy.                  .

Staff have the right to refuse to administer any first aid.

 

 

Infectious & Communicable Diseases.

If any infectious or communicable disease is detected on the  premises parents/carers will be informed and as much information as possible given, and if necessary, Ofsted informed. Children who are known to be unwell by parents/carers should be kept away  until it is safe for them to return.

 

Head Lice

When a case of head lice is discovered, it will be handled sensitively and safely. The child concerned will continue with activities but will be supervised. When the child concerned is collected their parent/carer will be informed in a sensitive manner. Other parents will be informed as quickly as possible.

 

All accidents, illnesses incidents & emergencies at Club will be treated with sensitivity and the appropriate level of confidentiality.
