Injury Management - Creating an Initial Treatment Report and Viewing Treatment History

Once you have gone through Report New Injury steps you will be directed to a page for that student so that you can fill out their Initial Treatment. This will remain as part of their treatment history for this specific injury.

This page is broken down into multiple sections for you to provide all the necessary details about the injury, treatment, and track communications. 

  • We will navigate first to the top left where the information needed will be 
    • Injured : Yes or no (you are filling out an initial treatment so the default will be Yes)
    • Able to Participate
    • Type of Surface ( this is the surface that the injury occurred on
    • Where Injury Occurred (was it in a Game, Practice or did it happen outside of a school related event)                                             
    • Nature of the Injury ( this is a text field where you can input what the injury is. Ex: Sprained ankle, Broken wrist, concussion, etc. )
  • Right below you will find Medical Notes and Notes to Coach. Medical Notes are intended for the user of the Trainer or other medical professional caring for the student athletes to take any notes for themselves to keep track of during treatment. Notes to coach will be anything that the coach needs to be informed about as this will be what they have visibility to when they view the students treatment and injury status.
    • SOAP notes are also included as part of the Initial Treatment. This is a section that will be of optional use to the trainer.
    • The trainer is also required to put in an Estimated Date of Return to Play that will also be visible to the coach.
  • The trainer will either have the Parents Contact information provide to them on this form if it was provided in the student’s initial program registration or they will be provided fields where they can input the contact information. Here they can document if they have contacted the parents or not and leave any notes about the contact for future reference.
    • The next Section on the initial treatment is for the trainer to identify the location of the injury or injuries being treated and the general medical information associated with the injury. 
      • Location
      • Upper Body
      • Lower Body
      • General Medical
  • The next Section on the initial treatment form is for the trainer to identify the treatment that they gave to the student in relation to the injury

  • The trainer can save the report at any point as long as the required fields are completed. After that treatment has been started and saved it will be locked and no longer be editable after 24 hours. If you need to make any changes to the initial treatment you can add an Addendum, which will be below the Initial Treatment form. 
    • The student will automatically show up on the injury log with the current injury and in the attendance list.

View Treatment History 

After an initial treatment has been recorded every treatment following will be based on the initial log and all be found under the same view for that student’s injury. You can access this view from the injury log or the attendance sheet.
