Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between The School-based Health Center (SBHC) and a typical School Nurse office?

The school nurse and other school staff are employees of the Brookings-Harbor School District. Their work is governed by state and federal education laws, and other school regulations. They provide certain health services, such as hearing, vision, and other needed screenings. They can give first aid and dispense prescription medication (with orders from a medical provider), but they cannot diagnose conditions or write prescriptions.

The SBHC staff include doctors, nurse practitioners, medical assistants, registered nurses, behavioral health providers, and social health staff who are employees of Coast Community Health Center. They help to increase access to health care and coordinate care with pediatricians, school health room staff, and other community partners. It does not replace the school nurse’s office but supports it and connects care between the school and primary care providers.

Who can access our health information?

SBHC staff cannot share student health information with school staff without specific permission. We can ask for permission and get written consent to share information if appropriate. This can be helpful in making sure all the students’ needs are being met, through many different supports.

School district employees, including school nurses, cannot share student’s information with anyone outside of the school district (under most circumstances), unless they have specific permission either. Schools may ask parents/guardians for permission so the SBHC can help student’s health and school needs as a team with the school and families.

Is signing up for the School Based Health Center required?

Giving permission and signing up for the School-Based Health Center is not required but is a recommended service provided by Coast Community Health Center for students, staff, and families of the School District. The goal is to shorten time away from school and lower absences for students, staff, and parents. We encourage you to use the benefits of school-based care. Services are voluntary and available to School District Students, staff, and their families.
