    Physical health services begin when a student visits their school nurse with a potential medical issue*, the nurse determines that a Hazel Health Telehealth appointment is necessary, and the nurse confirms the student has a Hazel Health consent form on file. The nurse will begin by initiating an on-demand Hazel Health visit. The nurse will then take the student’s height, weight, temperature, and blood-oxygen level and enter that information on the iPad for the provider.

If appropriate, the provider may prescribe the student with over-the-counter medicine that the parent/ guardian has previously consented to or may recommend follow up care. Once the visit is complete, an automatic follow up report will be sent to the student’s parent/ guardian or guardian.
