Accident Policy

Accident/Incident Policy

The safety of your child is paramount and I will take every measure I can to protect your child from hurting itself. However sometimes accidents do happen and I have written the following procedure on how I will deal with such a situation:

·        I will comfort the child and reassure them

·        I will assess the extent of their injuries and if necessary call for medical support/ambulance

·        I will carry out any first aid procedures that are necessary and that I have been trained to do

·        Once the child is more settled I will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of the accident and if necessary to ask you to return to care for your child/ meet me at the hospital

After every accident, however minor I will:

·        complete a report in my accident book

·        ask you to sign the report and then provide you with a copy

If the incident requires any medical treatment then I will:

·        Inform Ofsted (under Standard 14.3 Children Act regulation, inform Ofsted about any significant events)

·        Inform my Insurance Company

·        Contact Morton Michel / Milton Keynes Early Years for additional advice/support

It is important that you keep me informed regarding your child’s condition following an accident and if you have sought medical advice.
