My camp offers an annual stipend to the physician, $100, just to sign the standing orders and I call the office of the physician if I have a question, ie: hoof and mouth disease, infection control measures.( over 6 years, I have only called the physician 3 or 4 times in a summer, if someone neeeds to be evaluated by medicial dr, ie : fracture, asthma attack, I call 911.) Standing orders need to specify reasons to administer, dosage, as per bottle label directions and frequency. We also have the parents sign a form on check in day a standard form that states, I give the nurse permission to administer the following over the counter medications on an as needed basis for certain health conditions, Tylonol-headache, fever greater than 101 oral, Tums-upset stomach, Benadryl- allergic reaction, Ibuprophen- menstrual cramps.
Once the standing orders are signed, we just place a new updated sheet on the top of the old one, the first year is more work for the doctor, but after that, the physician only needs to be contacted to sign a new agreement of standing orders every summer. In church bulletin:
Church X is seeking a physician to act as a consultant for the church camp. Requires meeting with the nurse once prior to the summer and on call for medical questions. Stipend to be provided.
