Medical Policy

Contacting Parents

If a child requires urgent medical attention, parents must be contacted. If we are unable to reach them, we will leave a detailed message if possible and then try to contact the alternate emergency contact.

Parents will also be contacted under any of the following circumstances:

  • Camper needs to be taken to the hospital or clinic

  • Potential head or spinal injuries

  • Vomiting or diarrhea for the camper occurs more than once

  • The camper has lice

  • The parents have requested to be contacted for specific items.

Seeking Medical Support

Determining when to seek additional support can be a very subjective decision for the nurse or first aid attendant, and it will depend largely upon the individual’s experience and training. The rule of thumb is that when there is any doubt in the mind of the nurse as to injury or treatment, the camper should be sent to a clinic or to emergency.

Obvious concerns that would cause automatic sending would include:

  • Any compromise or potential compromise to ABC (airway, breathing, or circulation)

  • Any wound not treatable with simple first aid

  • Any allergic reaction not responding to minor treatment

  • Any potential sprain or break

  • Any infection

  • Any fever that lasts longer than 24 hours

  • Swelling or bites that get progressively worse (red, hot, and painful)

  • Any serious burn, or even a minor degree burn on a large part of the body

  • Any complaint related to a serious prior condition.
