Student Health Collaboration
Sharing Student Health Records With School Nurses
Nemours is making it easier for Delaware school nurses to be a part of your child’s care team. Using NemoursLink, our secure, Web-based electronic medical records system, they can see a child’s plan of care and information about almost every visit to Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children or a Nemours duPont Pediatrics location in Delaware. School nurses can only view a child’s records if a parent or guardian has signed an authorization form allowing them to do so.
Examples of what school nurses can see:
- current medications
- diagnosis information
- treatment plans
- care instructions after an injury, illness, surgery or hospitalization
Through the sharing of Nemours’ health records, the Student Health Collaboration (SHC) is helping school nurses achieve the best, safest care possible for students in Delaware’s schools. Access to these electronic health records is through NemoursLink, which allows school nurses and other approved community health professionals a read-only view into the student’s records.
