Infirmary

Back
The IIL infirmary is located on the ground-floor of the main building. Two nurses are present on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8 am to 4:30 pm, and on Wednesdays from 8 am to 1.30 pm.
  • Description
Together with the international school doctor, the nurses liaise with the Office de l'Enfance et de la Jeunesse (OEJ), the Geneva child health and protection service.

As health professionals, the school nurses are subject to medical confidentiality. Information regarding student health therefore remains strictly confidential.

IIL nurses have a holistic approach to student health. They follow-up on medical treatment, listen, and support students, parents and teachers on health-related matters. The overall prevention programme is carried out in partnership with students, teachers, families, the school nurses and the school doctor.

Nurses are qualified to administer first aid and medical treatment based on prescriptions. In case of an accident or illness, they make direct contact with parents and, if necessary, ensure that the student is taken to an appropriate medical structure (Geneva University Hospital HUG, dispensary). The IIL nurses are available to answer any questions you may have concerning your child's health issues.

In accordance with the requirements of the Geneva child health and protection service (OEJ), parents of new students must provide medical details regarding their children. On arrival at the school they receive two questionnaires, one of which they fill in themselves. The other is to be filled in by the paediatrician or family doctor. Both forms must be returned to the school nurses without delay. This assessment helps to identify children with chronic diseases or allergies and to monitor the immunization status of each student. All information is covered by medical confidentiality.

In the case of food allergies, individualised support tailored to the specific needs of the student is provided by the school canteen staff in partnership with parents and the IIL housekeeper. Serious allergies may require specific conditions. Information regarding allergies does not fall under medical confidentiality.
