For parents with a child living with diabetes, back to school time can be stressful because it means handing responsibility for the child’s diabetes management to school staff. However, this time need not be so stressful for parents. There are a number of ways that parents can help to assure their child’s safety at school.
The most important step is to gather the necessary information needed by the school staff for them to properly manage the child’s individual diabetes needs. The American Diabetes Association offers a Diabetes Medical Management Plan (DMMP) document to be filled out by the student’s personal diabetes healthcare team, which includes parents. The plan would be given to relevant school personnel, such as the school nurse, to review and keep in their records.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), emergency departments treated 2.2 million nonfatal fall injuries among older adults in 2009.
The CDC also reports that falls are the leading cause of non-fatal injuries for all children through age 19. Every day, approximately 8,000 children are treated in U.S. emergency rooms for fall-related injuries, almost 2.8 million children each year.
The danger of having a fall accident is a reminder of the importance of wearing a medical alert bracelet or medical alert necklace. Wearing medical ID jewelry will inform medical personnel of your health condition, medications, emergency contacts, and other important information.
There are a number of ways to reduce the likelihood of a fall accident occurring at home.
