3.50 Accidents

Can I ask do you record every bump or fall. Sometimes we have just spoken with parents as there was no injury or just a little red mark. Should we record everything?


3.52 managing behaviour states we must keep a record of physical interventions.

Can anyone clarify is that picking a child up through to restraining?

If it's left a mark we record eg scratch, graze, pink mark. Also record every head injury even if no mark. Parents think we are mad but I would much rather make sure they know!


We would only record physical intervention when they've had to be restrained - picking a young child up and removing them from a situation putting them down to play somewhere else we wouldn't. Picking a child up and holding them on our lap to stop them from injuring themselves or others we would. Don't know if that's right but that's what we do!
