parents will be notified immediately. It may be a requirement in the case of an enteric outbreak that parents collect stool samples using a kit provided by York Region Public Health. Public Health Investigators will provide support and instructions to the child care centre at this time. In the unfortunate event that a child has a minor accident/incident/injury while in our care the parent /guardian will be advised and an accident report will be completed by the staff. Upon pick up the parent/guardian will be asked to sign the accident report. A copy of the report will be given to the parent/guardian and a copy kept in the child’s file. In the event of a more serious accident, that requires medical attention, the parent/guardian will be notified immediately of the situation and depending on the severity, the child will be accompanied by our staff to the nearest hospital transported by ambulance or taxi. KCCE staff members are trained in first aid and Level C CPR If medical attention is required and treatment is received, KCCE is required to report the incident and the outcome as a Serious Occurrence to the Ministry of Education within 24hrs. Parents/Guardians are required to call the centre if their child/children will not be attending, for whatever reason. 3.7 Allergies, Anaphylactic/Auto Injector In compliance with “Sabrina’s Law”, it is our goal to ensure that all children enrolled in our programs are not at risk of exposure to anaphylaxis causative agents. For every child with a life threatening allergy, we will develop an individual plan and emergency procedure with input from the child’s family. This plan must be reviewed and signed by the parent and family physician. The plan will include a description of the child’s allergy, monitoring and avoidance strategies, signs and symptoms and any action that needs to be taken in the event the child has a reaction. This plan will be shared with all staff, and they too must be trained and sign off on the plan, which is reviewed annually. The parent must come and train each staff on the procedures to be followed in the event of their child having an anaphylactic reaction, how to recognize the symptoms and how to administer medication. The Supervisor/Staff Designate will receive training and consent from the parent to train any new staff, students or volunteers. Any new staff, students and volunteers who commence after the initial training, will be trained by the Supervisor or parent. Additional training on how to use an Auto Injector will be done at First Aid training that will be conducted by a certified trainer. If your child develops a life-threatening allergy or any other allergy once enrolled in our program, you must inform the Area Supervisor. If the medication expires, it is the parent’s responsibility to replace it. If a child who is authorized to carry their own auto-injector arrives without it, all measures will be taken to contact the parents to either supply an auto injector or pick up child from program. All auto injectors must have a pharmacy label directly on the injectors. A list of causative agents will be posted on our Parent Board.
