The Medical section of the menu contains many different forms that are available to store various medical information pertaining to a student. This includes medical conditions, medical history, medical notes, immunizations, dental, hearing, vision, physicals, scoliosis, and medications.
The Medical data is stored in individual tables, which include:
- Medical - MED
- Medical Notes - MNO
- Medical History - MHS
- Immunizations - IMM
- Hearing - HRN
- Vision - VSN
- Dental - DNT
- Physicals - HWOSCO
- Medication Log - MLG and
- Medications - MLM.
Codes and descriptions for the different drop downs on these forms can be setup in the Code table for consistency from Update Code Table.
The Medical pages can be accessed under Student Data then Medical on the menu.
A Red Flag option can be set ON for different Medical areas which are visible on the Information bar located across the top of all student-related pages. The tab on the bar for Flags will have a red circle with the number of flags for the student. Clicking the tab will reveal the red flag and comment on each red flag. For more information on Red Flags, see the following link: Red Flags in Aeries
The user may also click the link to be taken directly to the relevant page, provided that the user has security permission to the appropriate page. A red flag Comment can also be added.
At the top of all Medical pages, except Daily Medical Log, Medication Schedule and Mass Add Medical Tests, there is a field for Health Problems (STU.HP). This is editable on any of the pages and it was created to allow teachers to have a quick way to know specific critical health issues that students may have without giving them access to a full medical page. Typically, health clerks enter text to list health issues in a coded manner due to confidentiality reasons and the limited size of the field.
For Users that have permissions to this field, the information will also appear in the Addt'l Info tab of the Student Information bar.
It will also print on the Student Emergency Card available in Student Demographics from the Reports button when the Include Medical Information option is selected.
