Milo Academy Medical
All accidents, even minor ones, occurring anywhere on campus must be reported to the staff member in charge of the activity or to the appropriate dean. Accident reports must be filled out within 24 hours of the accident by the person injured in order to receive coverage under the student accident insurance policy. Report forms can be obtained from the administrative secretary. Accidents occurring at work must be reported to the work supervisor immediately.
When you are ill, please follow this procedure:
Any exceptions to the above policy must be approved by the dean on duty. Your classes will not be excused if you do not abide by these regulations. A student, either village or dorm, who has been put on sick list and who is seen out and about on campus later that day will receive attendance points for all classes missed; the medical excuses will become invalid for those appointments.
Please note that all routine medical appointments should be made to coincide with regularly scheduled home leaves unless your primary physician is local. If an appointment for illness or injury is needed, you must contact the dean or administrative secretary to arrange one for you.
Each student is responsible to have the medical instruction sheet filled out by the attending physician or nurse with each doctor's visit. This sheet along with any medication must be given to your dean.
No staff member may dispense medications to any student, including over-the-counter medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, etc., without written parental consent. A consent form for this purpose is a part of the registration packet.
Students may keep medication on campus and self-administer if the medication is registered with the dean. The medication must be stored in the locked drawer provided in each dorm room. This includes ALL long and/or short term medications. Examples: antibiotics, Ritalin, treatments for asthma and diabetes.
In the case of suspicion of abuse of any medication, the MAA administration and deans reserve the right to confiscate medications and dispense the medications for that individual.
Health insurance is important for every student to have in ase of illness or accident while enrolled at Milo. Medical copay and prescription costs are the parents' responsibility.
If students do not have health insurance, a deposit is required at registration for medical copay, doctor visits, and prescriptions. Parents are responsible for any additional medical costs for their child during the year.
