Health Services

Welcome to the School Nurse’s Office!

Sungji Yoon, Nurse
“We begin every school year with health issue screenings to take care of students with special health care needs such as medication administration, and establish health care plans for all levels. The daily routines at SIS includes various physical activities including sports. Big and small emergencies from upset stomachs to fractures are dealt with calmly and efficiently.

As the school nurse, I would like our students to know that the Nurse’s Office is a place of comfort and care.”

The school Health Policy is designed to provide the greatest safety and protection for SIS students and all others at Seoul International School. A certified school nurse is on duty during the entire school day.
Medication can be brought to school if it is essential to the health of the student. The medicine with accompanying written s tatement must be clearly marked with the student’s name, correct dosage, and parent’s signature. Medicine will be kept in the nurse’s office during school hours.
If an accident or sudden serious illness occurs at school, every effort will be made to contact parents, but immediate treatment of the injured student is our first concern.
First aid will be administered by the school’s Registered Nurse. If the situation is serious enough to require other treatment, 119 will be contacted immediately and an ambulance will transport the student to the hospital. The school will request the student be taken to Seoul Asan Medical Center(02.3010.5001, Pungnap-dong) where SIS has a contracted agreement with the International Clinic. In the event that the ambulance will not comply with our request, then the student will be taken to a hospital in Seongnam City, as determined by the ambulance. SIS personnel will accompany the student. Parents will be notified of the hospital location and should immediately go to the hospital, where the SIS staff member will be waiting to meet them.
