delhi schools to follow dcpcr medical emergency guidelines
Most Delhi Schools are ill-quipped to deal with emergencies like stampede or asthma attack. Students suffer due to lack of expert prompt care and right infrastructure. To deal with the issue, Delhi Commission for Protection of child rights (DCPCR) has issued medical emergency guidelines to Delhi schools. According to the guideline book, schools must have dispensary on ground floor, a full-time doctor or doctor-on-call service, emergency response team, First-aid experts, database of such students who suffer form some chronic or special problems like asthma. The school bus must have first-aid box and its drivers/conductors should have been trained in CPR. Parents should also have knowledge about first-aid and childhood emergencies. They should send asthmatic kids with inhalers, inform schools if kids are suffering from some special diseases and participate in health-based programmes.
