Nursing service



At Lope de Vega International School we have Ana Hoyo, full-time school nurse.

Ana prevents, assists and treats accidents, illnesses or allergies; It also safeguards, stores and supplies the necessary medication.

But it also does important work in terms of health promotion. Its commitment ranges from first aid training for teachers and students to promoting healthy eating, blood donation campaigns and disease prevention.

Ana is currently in charge of all aspects of the health of our educational community at the school; Lope de Vega International School. This includes different areas:

• Attending any accidents that may occur, managing the whole process.

• Supervise the special diets of students who require it.

Administers medication in case of medical prescription either acutely or chronically, and without medical prescription always under parental or legal guardian consent in case of pain;

Prevents, detects and follows up different health problems that may occur during the school day, advising parents, the school and other health professionals when more specialised health care is needed.

• We work with the school nursing platform SNapp. The platform allows for greater security and confidentiality of data, portability of the student’s medical history and report, the registration of pathologies and the dispensing of medicines. Also secure communication with families.

• It provides health training.

In the school we have AED:Automated External Defibrillator. It is a medical device for out-of-hospital use to reverse cardiac arrest that can help save thousands of lives a year. Cardiac arrest or sudden death occurs suddenly.
