First Aid Response in Schools

First Aid Response in Schools.

We have found that with school funding being cut, moneys available for school nurses is being squeezed or indeed lost altogether. We hear from many schools that need more information about providing emergency care for children.
We have seen the four main areas of concern are: anaphylaxis, adrenaline auto-injector pens (Epipens, Jext, Emerade ), asthma and seizures.
Carry on reading for our first aid tips to respond promptly to any of these emergency situations in schools.
