Seizure Protocol

  • Seizure Protocol

    If the participant experiences a seizure while attending programming with ASNL it is important that we have the following information to provide appropriate care and follow-up. Please carefully fill out the following:
  • Emergency Contact Information

  • Please note ASNL staff are required to call an ambulance for any seizure that lasts longer than 5 minutes.

  • In the case that a participant experiences a seizure, staff will proceed to act as follows:


    • Begin timing the seizure at its onset

    • Assess safety concerns (furniture, stairs, etc.)

    • Inform parent/guardian

    • If a seizure lasts more than 5 minutes staff will call an ambulance (the cost of this service is the responsibility of client/family)

    • Discuss with parent/guardian the suitability of remaining in programming post-seizure

    • Complete an incident report form detailing the seizure event and provide a copy to the parent/guardian
