Important Imagine Hope Update
September 1, 2016
As your partner in education, I am writing to make you aware of a situation yesterday involving one of our students. We are thankful the student is reported to be fine, however we want you to have factually accurate information.
To provide our students and campus with a school nurse, Imagine Hope Tolson contracts with an outside health care staffing service. Yesterday, their employee inadvertently administered the wrong medication to a student who had come to the nurse’s office for treatment. We immediately took action to ensure the well being of our student, involving both emergency medical providers and local authorities.
We have followed up with the student’s parent/guardian to express our continuing good wishes for a full recovery and are encouraged by the reports we are hearing. We also continue to cooperate fully with local authorities as they lead a thorough investigation. Additionally, we have ensured the nurse in question will no longer be on our campus.
Due to privacy and legal concerns, we are not able to offer further information, other than to assure you the safety and health of our students is our highest priority. We will be reviewing the health care protocols already in place and look for any further action that can be taken to strengthen them.
As always, thank you for the privilege of partnering with you to educate your child at Imagine Hope Tolson. I encourage you to speak with me directly should you have additional questions or concerns.
