Did you know, Salamanca CCSD has an Urgent Care?
The SCCSD Urgent Care is open Monday - Friday during school hours 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
In addition to treating non-emergent medical needs such as ear infections, pink eye, allergies, skin abnormalities, and more, the SCCSD Urgent Care can uniquely test students and employees for COVID-19, Influenza, Strep Throat and Urinalysis.
Salamanca City Central School District is partnering with Mobile Telemed to provide students immediate access to physical and mental healthcare services during school hours. Access to medical and mental health services in Cattaraugus County are limited.
What is Telemedicine?
Salamanca students can be quickly evaluated, diagnosed and treated by a medical provider by using telecommunications technology. Students get the care they need, when they need it, right in their own school community.
Telemedicine does not replace a family doctor; it provides immediate access to medical services.
How it works
Student checks in at the school health office
The school nurse initiates a call with our telemedicine agency, Mobile Primary Care
A medical provider joins the student and school nurse on a video call
The provider evaluates the patient via bluetooth medical instruments
At the conclusion of the video call, the physician can write a script, order labs and provide a treatment plan
A summary of the treatment plan is sent to the child's physician
