Abstract

This study obtained information on medically fragile children (MFC) attending schools and the involvement of educational staff in their health care. Findings indicate that educators have contact with a large number of medically fragile children with a variety of health conditions that could have serious implications. Educators are being asked to perform health care tasks in the classroom, and receive little or no training to prepare them for health conditions of the children or health care procedures. Educators feel unprepared to deal with medically fragile children in the classroom, and want and need more training.
