18 The mission of Nursing Services is to strengthen and facilitate the educational process by improving and protecting the health status of children and by identifying and assisting in the removal or modification of health-related barriers to learning. The major focus is the prevention of illness and disability and the early detection and correction of health problems. Nursing Services, therefore, contributes to student achievementNot only to identify defects, but also help families find resolution/intervention.18
19 DEFINITION OF A SCHOOL NURSE C.E.C. 49426 A school nurse is a registered nurse with a Bachelors degree, who has completed the additional requirements for, and possesses a current credential in, school nursing.All school nurses are represented by UTLA same contract as the teachers.Two years of Acute Hospital Nursing Requirement for School Nursing19

21 CPR/AED TrainingLAUSD has its own American Heart Association (AHA) Training Center. The program, which falls under District Nursing Services, offers Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillator Program (CPR/AED) and First Aid Training to all District employees free of charge.There are over 330 AEDs placed in schools and offices throughout the District.The LAUSD Training Center has 3 AHA Basic Life Support Training Center Faculty and 50 AHA Basic Life Support Instructors, who train on average 3000 employees a year in CPR. The LAUSD Training Center is one of the largest in California. The participants receive a certification card, which is valid for two years, from the American Heart Association. We have several partnerships which allows us to receive grants from private organiztions to offer a training called CPR any time designed for the students. With this training the students will commit in training 10 more individuals in their community. The Kits are provided to them. This year we began training parents groups in partnership with LACUSC.21
22 District Nursing CPR/AED Program Roybal Annex: 121 N Beaudry Ave Training Center.Registration through Learning ZoneServing: Certificated, Classified, Students and Parent/CommunityLet me take this opportunity to Demonstrate to you an AED machine use…….Research indicates that CPR coupled with AED saves more lives. How many of you have AED machines in your schools. Do you know the location? Two years ago a HCA used her skills to save a life of a student at a San Fernando ES. She was trained by school nurses. Let me demonstrate for you how simple it is to use the AED Machine.22
23 Preparticipation Physical Evaluation Medical Clearance of Students Participating in Interscholastic Athletics/Select Auxiliary Units NEW-Bulletin23
24 PolicyEach student planning to participate in California Interscholastic Athletic Federation competition or cheerleading must undergo an annual Preparticipation Physical Evaluation by a qualified California licensed health care provider prior to tryout, practice or actual competition. Select auxiliary units and marching band must undergo a physical evaluation at least once prior to tryout, practice or participation and annual Health History24
25 PHYSICAL EXAMINATION FOR INTERSCHOLASTIC ATHLETICS The overall goal of the Preparticipation Physical Evaluation (PPE) is to help maintain the health and safety of the athlete and cheerleaders in training and competition which is achieved by three primary objectives:Detect conditions that may be life threatening or disablingDetect conditions that may predispose to injuryMeet legal and administrative requirements25
26 Athletic PhysicalsThe Credentialed School Nurse Reviews the health history and Physical Examination from the doctor for participating in team sports, band and cheerleading.Clearance must be done before practice begins.School nurses have identified heart problems not mentioned by student to health care provider because they wanted to participate in sports….can lead to consequences when these health issues are not know.26
27 Qualification of the Examiners Qualification of an examiner to perform the PPE is based on training and clinical expertise. In general, the District accepts medical clearance from California-licensed health care providers in the following groups:Physician (MD/DO)Nurse Practitioner (NP)Physicians Assistant (PA)27
28 Timing and Frequency of the Evaluation A full PPE must be conducted annually prior to tryout, conditioning, practice, and competition in a sport. The PPE should ideally be performed at least 6 weeks prior to the start of practice. To avoid potential difficulties of scheduling evaluations in mid-summer during conditioning or pre-season practice, evaluations may be performed at the end of the previous school year.28
29 Forms for Documenting Evaluation The full PPE must be documented on the “Preparticipation Physical Evaluation” form The California Interscholastic Federation Sports Medicine Committee recommends the use of the PPE form published in the “Preparticipation Physical Evaluation,” 4th Edition (see references). The form includes health history, physical exam, and clearance sections that are important for documentation of a full PPE.*Any questions about the PPE form should be directed to the school nurse. Electronically PPE clearance coming from a physician or qualified provider, and the clearance is documented and interpreted clearly on the document, and then we can accept it.29
30 PROCEDURES AND RESPONSIBILITIES Athletic Director and Coaches:Distribute the following to students planning to try out for competitive athletics and cheerleaders:Athletic Record Card to be completed and signed on the back by the student and the parent/guardian. Personal identifying information on the face of the card should be completed by the student.The Preparticipation Physical Evaluation form is to be completed and signed by a California-licensed health care provider with the contact information of the clinic or office where it was performed and stamped.After removing the Insurance Certificate, take the completed Athletic Record Card and the completed Preparticipation Physical Evaluation form to the school nurse. Medical approval is valid for one year only.File the Insurance Certificate with the athletic director.Keep a record of students who have been medically approved, deferred, or disapproved.30
31 PROCEDURES AND RESPONSIBILITIES School NurseEvaluate Preparticipation Physical Evaluation and review student health record, if available.Determine whether the health care provider’s approval is in accord with what is documented on the PPE (Appendix A). If necessary, contact the health care provider to clarify any recommendation or restriction. If after contacting the private health care provider there are unresolved questions regarding the clearance, consult with the local district school physician.File the completed PPE with the student’s health record in the school Health Office. Enter into Welligent under Mass Screening in “type of event”.The school nurse will give the list of the students who are cleared for sport participation upon request by the Athletic Director and/or coach.31
32 DETERMINING CLEARANCE FOR ATHLETIC PARTICIPATION *The most important decision in the PPE is determining clearance for athletic participation. Clearance can be divided into four categories:Clearance without restriction;Clearance with recommendation for further evaluation or treatment (such as rechecking blood pressure in one month);“Not cleared” clearance status to be reconsidered after completion of further evaluation, treatment or rehabilitation;Not cleared for certain types of sports or for all sports.If the athlete cannot play the sport of choice, the health care provider should consider alternatives that allow some form of participation.32
33 Clearance Policy for Student Athletes with Impaired Vision BackgroundAll sports-related activities including practice and actual competition carry a small risk of inadvertent eye injury. The consequences of any eye injury are greatly magnified in student- athletes with reduced vision in one or both eyes, regardless of the cause. In these children, an injury to the better eye can create a permanent visual disability.PurposeTo prevent/reduce potential for permanent visual disability due to injury in student athletes with impaired vision.PolicyThe American Academy of Ophthalmology defines “functionally one-eyed athletes” as those with a best-corrected visual acuity less than 20/40 in the worse eye. As part of the routine school/sports physical, all student-athletes should be screened with a distance Snellen (or equivalent) visual acuity for each eye. If the best-corrected distance vision, wearing prescribed eyeglasses or contact lenses as needed, is worse than 20/40 in either eye, the child MUST use safety eyewear while participating in any sports-related activity. The safety eyewear can be in the form of eyeglasses, goggles, or a face shield that covers the eyes, but in all cases should be manufactured with polycarbonate safety glass (many prescription eyeglasses are not made of polycarbonate glass and do not provide adequate protection against eye injury).33
34 RETURN TO ATHLETIC PARTICIPATION Minor Illness or InjuryA student absent from athletic practice or competition for an extended period of time due to illness or injury must present a written statement from the treating California-licensed health care provider indicating a recommendation for return to athletic participation and any modifications or accommodations that may need to be implemented.The student shall be referred to the school nurse who will determine eligibility and notify the Athletic Director and/or coach.34
35 RETURN TO ATHLETIC PARTICIPATION Serious Illness or InjuryThe student returning with written approval from the California-licensed health care provider following a serious injury or illness including, but not limited to, concussion, fracture, ruptured kidney, spleen or liver, extensive lacerations, torn ligaments, etc., must be referred to the school nurse for reevaluation prior to resuming practice and competitive athletics.35
36 HEALTH CLEARANCE FOR CHEERLEADERS Cheerleaders are not covered by the California Interscholastic Federation (C.I.F.) regulations. However, these activities often include strenuous activities or skills that warrant a pre-participation physical evaluation. Students who wish to participate in cheerleading will obtain a PPE annually prior to tryout, practice and competition. The coach or instructor shall distribute and collect the necessary forms; the school nurse shall review the Health History and the PPE as in section II.B.36
37 HEALTH CLEARANCE FOR AUXILARY UNITS DRILL TEAM, FLAG TEAM, DANCE TEAM AND MARCHING BAND Students who wish to participate in select auxiliary units and marching band activities will obtain a PPE at least once prior to tryout, practice and competition. The coach or instructor shall distribute the necessary forms, and the school nurse shall review the forms. Annual physical clearances are not required, but the students, their families and coaches should report any interim health issue that will affect participation to the school nurse. The school nurse reviews the current Student Health History each year to determine District clearance to participate.37
39 Selected GamesThese are the factors that determine Selected Games (rivalry, community safety issues, and anticipated large attendance)All Selected Games must be approved by school police and Athletics Office
40 Injury TrackingForms should be submitted to Athletics Office within 72 hours with ISTAR tracking numberMake sure there is immediate contact with parent/guardian and school nurse is notified.Follow up with the status of injuries and additional medical procedures that may have taken place.No athlete returns until you have been provided medical clearance by a doctor and reviewed by school nurse.
