Infirmary

In order to promote a healthy and safe environment for students and staff alike, Eurocampus has an infirmary. 

 

The main purpose of the infirmary is to improve the health of the school community.

 

Automated external defibrillators, first aid kits, oxygen, nebulizers, wheelchairs and stretchers are available for optimal care in an emergency.

 

The school clinic aims to develop the mental, emotional and physical well-being of students by providing the following services:

- Review students' medical history and medical records.
- Record the students' visit to the school clinic
- Keep appropriate supplies to deal with minor illnesses, injuries and emergency care.
- Promotion of healthy lifestyles.
- Health care advice to students, their families and staff, providing information as needed.
- Identify health problems by observing and assessing needs and providing appropriate care.
- Administration of medication as needed and with the agreement of the parents.
- Respond to emergencies and be available during sports and other events, upon request.
- Give lectures to students on the requested topics and offer training/seminar to staff on basic treatment and first aid.
- Promote and assist in the control of communicable diseases through early symptom detection, surveillance, reporting and monitoring of communicable diseases.

The infirmary consists of two nurses. It is open from 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday.

In case of emergency or illness, nurses provide immediate first aid and provide parents with a provisional diagnosis. It is always recommended to go to the nearest hospital for further assessment and treatment.

In the event of a serious problem, the child is evacuated to a hospital near the Lycée in the presence of an adult and the parents are immediately informed.

Seasonal influenza is an acute viral infection caused by an influenza virus. There are three types of seasonal influenza A, B and C. Influenza does not usually have serious health consequences, but it can cause significant complications when it occurs in people with poor health (young children, the elderly, pregnant women from the 4th month of life and people undergoing treatment that weakens immunity).
Contamination is carried out by airborne and manual means.


The symptoms: 

  • They appear for 3 to 7 days:

  • generalized muscle aches and pains

  • tiredness

  • headaches

  • sore throat

  • sneezes

  • fever up to 40°C

with children under 5 and over 65 years of age it is possible that the fever is lower.


Prevention:
Strengthening immunity through vaccination,

  • Frequent hand washing.

  • Wear a mask when contaminated.

  • In order to avoid any outbreak, it is common practice to avoid going back to school if your child shows signs of illness.
