We, at Sherwood High understand how important it is to have medical aid close on hand in an educational institution. We have 2 well-equipped infirmaries where first aid is administered and 3 nurses are on-call all through the day. The infirmary has sick-beds where children may rest till they are picked up for the day. All minor cuts and wounds are tended to here. Any oral medication administered is done so only after the permission of the parents has been sought.
Any larger medical emergencies are immediately referred to nearby hospitals of Fortis or Vijayashree. Should any child require administration of medicine through the day or follow-up medication, then this is done by the school nurse only after written permission and an authorization letter provided by the parents.
Children are attended to with a great deal of love and compassion. We understand how alarming even the smallest of wounds appears to a child, when they are away from home. We take care of them with all the gentleness in the world.
