The institution has well equipped infirmaries separate for boys and girls. The Medical Officer, who attends everyday on fixed timings, maintains the health record of each child. Parents are required to submit the medical form with required tests reports.
Special interest is taken in the development and welfare of each child. The children are weighed regularly and the institution has a clearly defined program of preventive medical inspections, dental inspection and eye-tests.
The diet is constantly inspected and revised. We should like to take this opportunity of drawing the attention of parents to the fact that the loss of a kilogram or so in weight during a very active term is not in itself a sign of poor or failing health.
Parents sometimes worry unnecessarily. We would stress that children are always under close observation by the Medical Officer. If a child spends more than 48 hours in the infirmary, the parent is informed and either asked to take the child home or if the child is in the infirmary the daily progress reports are supplied until the child can join institution again. Parents can telephonically enquire about the child’s well being from the office.
Visiting hours at the institution during child’s sickness are to be decided by consulting the Principal.
Parents and Visitors are not permitted to supply fruits or sweets and food-stuffs or medicines to patients without the permission of the Medical Officer. In the event of a child requiring treatment beyond the scope of the institution he/she will be transferred to some hospital in Pune or be sent home.
Tonics and patient’s medicines will be allowed only with the permission of the Medical Officer.
All treatments and medicines are billed and to be paid by parents.
