Medical Review Process
MEDICAL REVIEW: The evaluation of a child’s known or unknown health or medical conditions and the determination of whether these conditions affect the ability to learn.
- A WCISEC member district conducts a domain meeting to determine the need for a Medical Review and that they would like the WCISEC Certified School Nurse to complete this review.
The following questions can be asked to determine if more information is needed.
- Where there complications during pregnancy/birth?
- Has your child had frequent ear infections?
- Has your child ever had an injury or accident that required medical attention?
- Has your child required medical care from a doctor/nurse practitioner in the last 12 months?
- Does your child take medication? If so, what medication and what dose?
- Is there anything in your child’s health history that we have not covered that you feel would interfere with his/her ability to learn?
- The WCISEC member district completes a Request for Consultation form and submits the form and a copy of the parent consent to evaluate/domain page to Anita Dobrzycki.
- The forms are processed and forwarded on to the WCISEC Certified School Nurse Andrea Ratermann.
- The Certified School Nurse contacts the student’s parents/guardians and has them fill out and return the following information:
- Authorization to Release/Obtain Information Form (for each doctor, including specialists)
- Student Health History Form
- The student may be observed by the Certified School Nurse. The Certified School Nurse will review the student’s medical and education records. The parent/guardian will be contacted for a short interview and follow up from the observation/record review.
