HEALTH CARE AREA
We look after the well-being of our students and that is why we are one of only two schools in Bogotá with a Health Care Area qualified for an educational institution. We have the legal operating permits granted by the Ministry of Health to provide primary care and nursing. This allows providing basic emergency care and first aid.
- One general physician.
- One professional nurse.
- Two nurse aides.
- Two nurse aide students.
The Health Care Area is located in the Coliseum building with access from the northern entrances.
• Two offices.
• A procedure room with four stretchers.
• Three wheelchairs to be lent (one for each section). Two automated external defibrillators (AED).

- We provide timely and efficient medical and/or nursing care to students and all members of the school community who require it, assessing the seriousness of their reason for consultation and, if necessary, we coordinate the referral to a more complete and specialised health care institution.
- We register all patients in the medical records software ASISTES. The data register includes arrival and departure time, name of the teacher who sent the student, reason for consultation, circumstances of the event, background, medical examination, the possible diagnosis, and the conclusions. This process is in line with the confidentiality of patient medical records laws and the data protection policy.
