dc.description.abstract The Sports Medicine Staff in the Department of Athletics at Maria Carrillo High School is responsible for the coordination of health care to the student-athletes within the high school athletic program. Included in this responsibility are various administrative and clinical duties that are carried out by the Sports Medicine Staff. The administrative duties include development and implementation of an emergency medical plan, medical record maintenance, compiling injury statistics, instituting medical coverage and staffing policy as it relates to practices and events, and budget management for the athletic training facility (ATF). Clinically, the staff is responsible for the prevention, evaluation, management, treatment, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. This also includes coordination of physician referrals, determination of participation status, and the counseling and education of student-athletes. Additionally the Sports Medicine Staff coordinates the health care of student-athletes relating to general medical illnesses and conditions as they may affect student-participation, which involves referrals to the Health Center, Counseling Center or other off-campus health care providers.
