Aim and scope 

This medical policy aims to advise all stakeholders on the various requirements,  procedures, and best practice expectations at RAS boarding. It is used as a guide and a source of information regarding all medical practices and procedures.  

RAS boarding has full-time, fully qualified resident nurses on call. It will be the nurses’  responsibility to refer any medical case to a suitably qualified doctor should this be in the student’s best interest or is beyond the nurses’ scope of practice. All other medical incidents that can be professionally attended by or done under the supervision of the nurse will be carried out at the boarding house, including post-treatment monitoring and care. 

Medical requirements 

  1. All students are required to have medical cover. If your child does not have private medical insurance, insurance coverage can be arranged through the school administration for a  fee. As a minimum, all private medical cover must cover in-hospitalization costs in  Malaysia. Proof of this is to be submitted to the Director of Boarding for administrative records keeping.  
  2. Each boarding student shall have a complete medical history questionnaire completed upon arrival at the boarding facility.
  1. The boarding facility employs registered nurses on a full-time basis. The nurses reside in the boarding facility. 
  2. The boarding facility has a fully equipped and functional in-house clinic that the nurse manages.

1 pm – 3 pm 

6:15 pm – 7 pm 

Saturday, Sunday, and Public Holidays

  2. Only the duty staff are required to contact the nurse if a student needs to be attended to. 6. A first aid kit is kept on the ground floor of the boarding facility. It is stocked with basic supplies and medication for minor ailments. This is to be used after hours by the duty staff for non-emergency matters. All used supplies must be noted on the record sheet provided. 7. In the event of an emergency, anyone can contact the nurse directly. 
  3. Parents that wish to discuss their child’s health can do so via e-mail. Alternately, parents may contact the boarding nurse between 7 am – 7 pm.

  2. Consultation fees and medication costs will be paid for upfront through the RAS boarding medical fund. Parents will then be invoiced to recover these payments. 
  3. Should the doctor refer any student to a specialist for further treatment, parents will be consulted for permission. All specialist fees will be charged to the parent’s account.  4. Where possible, following a doctor’s consultation, students will be sent back to school to continue their school program. Should a student be too ill to attend school, they will be granted permission to recover in their rooms with periodic observations or in the boarding clinic for more regular observations by the boarding nurse if necessary. 
  4. It is the nurses’ responsibility to assess whether a student’s health allows them to return to school.

Students that leave campus for the weekend to go and stay with friends or go home are under the medical care of their host families or parents.

Parents/Guardians that wish to gain access to the boarding facility can only do so if prior arrangements with the Director of boarding have been made. Parents/guardians are encouraged to not arrive unannounced as it cannot be guaranteed that their children will be available

No parent/guardian is permitted to accompany their children into their rooms without approval.  This is to ensure that the privacy of other students is always protected.

  2. Please include the date and time your child will leave and return to the boarding facility. 3. Under no circumstances is the boarding facility or staff responsible for children who have permission to leave boarding over a weekend, public holiday, or vacation. This includes medical emergencies. The host family is responsible for the well-being and behavior of the child. 
  3. It is understood that once a parent has given permission, all arrangements between the host family and the student have been arranged.
  1. The deposit is to be used for incidentals, including excursions, doctor visits, stationery purchases, etc.  
  2. The students will have access to the money through the Director of Boarding. 
  3. All monies not used at the end of the academic year will be returned to parents.  4. All monies used from this deposit will be tracked and recorded with evidence.

  2. It is important that boarding staff and parents work together to promote and teach the students how to conduct themselves and learn critical skills that will help them after they leave school. 
  3. If you have a concern or question, please contact the Director of Boarding via email or phone.
  1. There are optional excursions on weekends for children to attend with supervision. This can range from a boat trip, Legoland visit, or a weekend away. These excursions are essential in developing social and emotional skills as well as having downtime outside the boarding facility. 
  2. Please encourage your child to attend the activities that are planned. The cost of these excursions will be paid by students themselves and is not included in the boarding fee.  Great care is taken to avoid expensive excursions.  
  3. There is a bus to the mall every weekend that students can use to do personal shopping or watch a movie. At all times, staff will be in the vicinity in case of emergency.  

I look forward to meeting all our parents at our orientation and moving in day!
