A medical record form must be completed for each child upon admission to the Hardy County Child Care Center. This form is to be signed by a physician and updated every 2 years following admission. If medical problems are suspected at any other time, the director may request additional medical examinations.
Children 6 weeks to 12 months must have a statement,from their physician stating that their child is healthy, and can attend the Hardy County Child Care Center.
It is in the best interest of the children, for the parents to make every attempt to administer all necessary medications at home.
The Hardy County Child Care will administer prescriptive medication only under the following guidelines:
- Those specifically ordered by a physician for the individual child in the original prescription container (with date of prescription fill, child’s name, physician’s name, matching medication, and specific directions).
- Those medications for which you have a written order from a physician for the individual child.
PLEASE DO NOT ASK US TO ADMINISTER NON-PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION WITHOUT A WRITTEN ORDER FROM YOUR PHYSICIAN.
Special Medical Treatment/ Procedures
We recognize the parent’s right to refuse medical treatment. However, we are mandated by the Good Samaritan Law to protect and ensure safety of all children to the best of our ability.
All children at the center must have up-to-date immunizations. Please check with your physician prior to the start of your child’s care to make sure your child’s immunizations are up-to-date. Please notify us when your child receives additional immunizations.
Exemptions from immunization requirements shall be available for parents who provide written documentation of religious objections to immunizations or who provide a signed statement from the child’s licensed health care provider indicating that immunization is unable to be given based on the child’s medical condition.
