If a child receives a scrape, bump, or bite that requires First Aid and attention, staff must complete an Accident Report. Accident Reports are located on the receptionist’s desk. The staff member must give an accurate description of what happened, and what he or she did via First Aid (washed with warm soapy water, boo boo bunny, etc.) Giving hugs and sympathy are important parts of treatment as well and can be noted. Staff should make sure the date, time, and place of accident are reported. The yellow copy goes into the child’s cubby for the parent, and the white copy goes to the office. If an incident involves another child, it is important to not identify that child by name…it’s confidential.
