BOOTS FOR SCHOOL HEALTH PROJECT
Mayor Roseller “Boots” Rodriguez of the Local Government Unit of Capas directed the Municipal Health Office to play a vital role in the Brigada Eskwela program by contributing its expertise and resources to ensure the health and safety of students and staff. Hence, aligned to the ongoing BOOTS Friday initiative of the Capas MHO, with reaching all communities in mind, the B.O.O.T.S. for School Health Project is intended to reach every public school in the municipality.
Boosting Optimal Operational Treatment Supplies or B.O.O.T.S. for School Health Project is a comprehensive initiative designed to strengthen the medical supplies and support systems in school clinics. By focusing on the following key areas, the project aims to enhance the overall healthcare infrastructure and improve the quality of care provided to students.
Establishing a dedicated area with comfortable beds to accommodate students requiring extended care, observation, or recovery. This will ensure that students can receive the rest and comfort they need while receiving treatment or awaiting parental pickup.
OXIMETERS & NEBULIZATION KITS
Ensuring that school clinics are equipped with oximeters for measuring oxygen levels and nebulization kits for administering respiratory treatments.
ORTHOPEDIC SUPPORT (Slings / Splints)
Stocking the clinic with a variety of orthopedic splints and slings to provide immediate support and stabilization for students with injuries or fractures. This will enable school healthcare professionals to administer basic orthopedic care while waiting for medical assistance or until the student can be transported to a medical facility.
Equipping the clinic with a thermal gun for non-contact temperature measurement. This tool will allow healthcare professionals to quickly and accurately monitor students’ body temperatures, helping to identify potential fever symptoms and take appropriate action to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
Providing necessary safety gear such as gloves, masks, and protective eyewear for healthcare professionals working in the school clinic. Ensuring the availability of personal protective equipment (PPE) will promote a safe and sanitary environment for both students and healthcare providers.
The B.O.O.T.S for School Health Project for school clinics in collaboration with the LGU led by our dynamic leaders, Mayor Roseller “Boots” Rodriguez, VM Alex Espinosa, Sangguniang Bayan and CAPAS – Municipal Health Office aims to create a robust healthcare infrastructure, ensuring that students receive effective and timely medical care while at school. By prioritizing these critical areas, the project seeks to enhance the overall health and well-being of students, fostering a safe and supportive learning environment.
