21-22 HCS Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussion Protocol (PDF)

 

Hampton City Schools is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our students.  A concussion committee has developed a protocol and parent information to help our community understand the prevention, symptoms and treatment of concussions.  If you have any questions concerning our concussion protocol, please feel free to contact Beth Mair at 727-2014.

 

• Concussion Information For Parents and Athletes (PDF)

 

Purpose:
Hampton City Schools is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our students.  The following concussion protocol utilizes the latest in medical research to prevent and treat injuries.  This protocol was written to ensure that student-athletes who sustain concussions are properly diagnosed, given adequate time to heal, and are comprehensively supported until they are symptom free.  It is the goal of this protocol to minimize and prevent further injury to the brain, such as second impact syndrome, while allowing student athletes to return to play in the healthiest and safest manner.

 

Definitions:
Concussion- is a brain injury that is characterized by an onset of impairment of cognitive and/or physical functioning, and is caused by a blow to the head, face or neck, or a blow to the body that causes a sudden jarring of the head (i.e., a helmet to the head, being knocked to the ground). A concussion can occur with or without a loss of consciousness, and proper management is essential to the immediate safety and long-term future of the injured individual.  A concussion can be difficult to diagnose, and failing to recognize the signs and symptoms in a timely fashion can have dire consequences.

 

Most athletes who experience a concussion can recover completely as long as they do not return to play prematurely.  The effects of repeated concussions can be cumulative, and after a concussion, there is a period in which the brain is particularly vulnerable to further injury.  If an athlete sustains a second concussion during this period, the risk of permanent brain injury increases significantly and the consequences of seemingly mild second concussion can be very severe, and even result in death (i.e., “second impact syndrome”).

 

Appropriate licensed health care provider-means a physician, physician assistant, osteopath or athletic trainer licensed by the Virginia Board of Medicine; a neuropsychologist licensed by the Board of Psychology; or a nurse practitioner licensed by the Virginia State Board of Nursing.

 

Return to Play-means participate in a nonmedically supervised practice or athletic competition.

 

Documentation:
Parents must report all concussions sustained prior to each year on the Virginia High School League Physical Form.  The Athletic Trainer will maintain documentation on students that have sustained a concussion during athletic competition at the athlete’s current high school.  A safe return to play is the ultimate goal regardless of age and level of play
