About the DeSana Middle School Clinic
Nurse Helen Goolsby
Clinic hours are from 8:30-4:30, Monday - Friday.
The main goal of the DMS clinic is to keep all students as well and comfortable as possible in the hopes to facilitate their academic potential. Occasionally, students become ill or get injured while here at school.If your child needs medication during the school day, please remember a parent needs to bring the medication to the school in its original container and sign a "Request for Administration of Medication" form. Click on the Useful Forms link to the left to download the form.The clinic does not have stock medications. All over the counter medications must be brought in by a parent/ guardian.Any daily medication that is given to your child for longer than a two week period, must have a physician signature on the medication form.The student must be fever free, without the use of Motrin / Tylenol, for 24 hours before returning to school. The student must also be vomiting and diarrhea free for 24 hours prior to returning to school.
Students who may need an inhaler while at school may keep it with them. Georgia law requires a signed medication administration form including a Dr.'s signature be kept on file in the clinic.
Hearing/Vision screenings are offered to all students here at DMS. If a student does not pass the first screen, a second check is done by us here in the clinic. You will be notified if your child does not pass the second screening.
Please notify the school nurse with any health concerns that may need attention while your child is attending school.
