Protecting Your Ministry
February 2, 2014

Dear Ministry Partners,

This month, we're talking all about how to make your ministry's nursery a safe and healthy place for both your children and staff/volunteers. Although you try to make your nursery safe, accidents will happen. You can be prepared for them. Today we're talking about preventing emergencies as well as responding to them when they do occur.

Here’s what you can do:
  • Have a well-stocked first aid kit.
  • Include first aid guidelines in your nursery procedures manual.
  • Train workers regularly on first aid and emergency procedures.
  • Post first aid guidelines, such as CPR instructions, in a prominent place.
  • Post important telephone numbers, such as that of your local poison control center, near the telephone.
  • Determine which injuries require immediate medical assistance.
  • Create a system to notify parents of injuries.
  • Maintain a signed medical release form on each child.
In addition, you can check out the resources we have below for you to check out.  Next week, we'll talk about more in depth about choosing supervisors within your ministry's nursery. As always, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch! We would love to hear from you!

God Bless You & Your Ministry,
John Korsmo
