Have just been to pick up mindee from nursery and was asked to sign accident sheet as she bumped head refused to as i havnt written permission from parents to do so and being a head injury wasnt sure about it. They had a big strop about it and said would take it up with mum. not sure i did right thing or not.

I would have signed it and asked for a copy of the entry for mum

Then when i got back I would have recorded it and asked mum to sign my record when she collected

I would also monitor the child for the rest of the day and record it to say how she was whether she ate or slept anything different from normal etc so I'd covered myself

I do sign and acknowledge this.


I then hand a form to the parent which states that their child had an accident, along with the details of the accident at school/pre-school and that I signed the accident book when I collected the child.

have recorded it at home and put why i didnt sign it at nursery, just spoke to mum and she said she would go in an explain what i had said to her and my concerns regarding the written permission to do this......hence i will write one up and get her to sign it for me later.

Our preschool doesn't give out copies, its just a book you are expected to sign. Which I have done in the past but now I go armed with existing injury forms, so if they ask me to sign their accident book, I will ask them to sign my form so I have something to give to the parent (and for my records) to confirm the injury did not occur while the child was with me.

That's the same with our pre-school susi, we don't get nay forms to keep, we just have to sign in a book. But the schools give you a form.
My nursery where i clean you are given forms to keep;

That's a good idea to go with your own forms Susi!

I have them here but I don't normally think to take them out with me... might change that one now you've made me think about it! That way I could get a signature from nursery as well for the parent... :D

11-03-2008, 12:20 PM

i do understand why you felt it was better not to sign
but then there is no prove the injury did not take place in your setting

i liked every one ideas about having a seperate form to ask the nursery/etc to then sign
would any places be reluctent to sign a form not worded by them though, oh this paperwork gives me a headache and i have not even started minding yet

bye bye pink:o
