Nationwide Children's Hospital Mobile Care Center
Nationwide Children’s Hospital Mobile Care Center at Pickerington North High School
The Nationwide Children’s Mobile Care Center and the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile© (in partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities©) will be at Pickerington North on Wednesday, November 16, 2022. The Mobile Care Center is like a doctor’s office – on wheels!
The Mobile Care Center can:
Help when your child has a sore throat, bad cough, earache, headache
Do blood work
Send medication to the pharmacy
Provide sports physicals
Help with work permit physicals
Test for pregnancy or sexually transmitted infections
Provide education on birth control
When your child sees the health care provider at the Mobile Care Center, an After Visit Summary (AVS) will be sent home with your child. The AVS will describe the services provided and any recommended follow up, if needed. A copy will also be sent to your child’s pediatrician.
The Mobile Care Center bills for services just like a doctor’s office. No child will be denied care due to inability to pay for services.
FROM THE SCHOOL NURSE
Welcome to Heritage Elementary!
My name is Marni Dreher and I am the School Nurse at Heritage Elementary and Pickerington North H.S. I look forward to meeting your child and working with you. I wanted to make you aware of some kindergarten health requirements.
1. Immunization Record - The State of Ohio requires all Public-School children to have updated immunization records. Please see Ohio Immunization requirements:
2. Physician Report form - A current completed form, signed by a HealthCare Provider, dated from 08/19/21 to present, is due by August 1, 2022. The Physician Report form can be found here:
If you have not turned in your child's immunization record and physician report form upon enrollment, please email the forms to school nurse's email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have already turned the forms in upon enrollment, the information has been received and you do not need to send it again.
Health Concerns - please communicate your child's health concerns and medications, if needed, a health plan will be developed and shared with teacher(s).
Change of Clothes - During school hours your child may need to change their clothes due to a bladder/bowel accident and/or falling in water puddles and/or mud. If possible, place an extra set of clothes in their book bag to use.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
