I’m Alicia Ricardo Diez, Registered Nurse.
My professional career began in 1991 with the Policlinica organization, I worked in various hospitals in Valencia, continuing with my training by doing various courses such as the Soporte Vital Avanzado, the C.A.P.,etc.
Currently as you know I am committed to attending your children during the school year. I supervise the menus of those children who require a specific diet, dealing with injuries derived from the small accidents that occur in school, and in general resolving all the social-sanitary problems that may arise.
If you have any doubts or questions contact me at email@example.com. My timetable is from Monday to Friday from 9:00h. to 16:30h.
We are a school equipped with an automated external defibrillator
We have the latest anti-asphyxiation “dechoker” device.
Private Medical Service
The school has a private medical service in the Centro Médico Alboraya (c/Flora, nº4 en Valencia). If a student faints during the school day a mobile medical service is called and a doctor can treat the student in the school, thereby avoiding the stress of a hospital visit. In the case that a hospital visit is deemed necessary, parents must come for the student and take them to hospital themselves.
School sickbay protcols:
1. Transferring a student to hospital in the case of emergency:
If a student must be translated to a hospital for any emergency, they must always be accompanied by their parents and/or their legal guardian. In the case that they cannot be localised, a person from the school will accompany them.
2. Illnesses (Alergies etc.)
If a student suffers from any illness, allergy or is taking any medication, please get in contact with the school nurse.
3. Alergies and/or food Intolerances
Any students who suffers from any allergy and/or any intolerance must communicate this in writing to the school nurse. If the student no longer suffers from said intolerance the school nurse also must be informed in writing so as to proceed to the normalization of the school lunch.
The medical report (copia) informing about what foodstuff should not be ingested must be provided to the school. In the case of allergies the medication which needs to be taken should be brought in case in any moment some symptoms appear. This medication will be stored in the school following medicine administration protocols.
If you have any doubts do not hesitate in getting in contact with the school nurse.
4. How School insurance works.
All students have fast medical assistance guaranteed for any accidents that may occur during the school day. The school works with MAPFRE who have a wide network of clinics, hospitals and doctors who can be consulted.
List of medical centres: centrosMedicos
In the case of having to use it, please get in contact with the school nurse, who will have to open an accident report. Without this you wont be attended in any medical centre or clinic.
5. Administration of medication
The Consellería de Educación y Ciencia do not allow the dispensation of medicines in schools ( it is a medical act). Therefore it is something which is to be avoided if at all possible. If, under exceptional circumstances it needs to be administered these are the following requirements:
Requirements for the administration of medicines in school.
1.- Copy of the medical prescription from the public doctor. In the case that the doctor is private, the prescription (or the photocopy of) must always have the child’s name, the dosis and steps to take, and very importantly the start and finish dates of the treatment.
.2.- Parental authorizacion. Download here: autorizacionMedica
No medicine will be administered without meeting these requirements.
Any medication that parents have bought themselves without a prescription from the child’s doctor or paediatrician can NEVER be administered.
The Nurse’s office will take no responsibility for any medicine taken which they have not been informed about.
** The medication must come in the orignal container with the student’s name, surname and year. During the treatment it will remain in the school, once the treatment is finished it will be retired.
