Care of Equipment

 

Cots:

 

Use paper protection for cots and pillows since it is not practical to change linens after each use by a child.  Change the protective covering after each use.  Blankets must be washed after each individual use.  Cots should be cleaned at least once a day and as needed with school board approved disinfectant (see  Infection Control).

 

Thermometers: 

 

Use a thermometer sheath to prevent the thermometer from coming into direct contact with the individual.  After use, remove the thermometer sheath.  Clean temporal scanners with alcohol swab after each use.

 

Equipment:

 

Emesis basins, tweezers, scissors, and other equipment used on students who are ill should be washed with soap and water, rinsed in school board approved disinfectant, dried, and returned to the cupboard after each use.
