The medical department is staffed by 1 full-time nurse and an advanced nurse practitioner who visits the facility once a week. The nurse and advanced nurse practitioner are contracted out from One Health Ohio. When the regular nurse is not available One Health Ohio will send another nurse in her absence. Nurses are responsible for obtaining pertinent medical information and history, overseeing all medications, and, if necessary, referring students to other health care facilities for treatment. A mobile x-ray van is available if necessary for the care of the students.
Parents/legal guardians are required to fill out a Medical Authorization Form if a student is admitted to the Detention Center.
