Through the agreement between CMS and CHS, these forms implemented to prevent any type of liability issue to protect both the safety of our student athlete and of our Athletic Trainer.
FORM 1: I prefer Novant facilities, why would I sign this?
The Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC) at HHS is an employee of Carolinas HealthCare System therefore it is a CHS form. Medical facility preference should be noted in the eligibility packet. This form is strictly for the ATC to treat your student-athlete(s).
FORM 2: Why should I sign a release of my child’s health records? The areas highlighted in teal are the only portions that need to be filled in. This form allows the ATC to communicate on the behalf of you and your family to the coach, guidance office, and teachers regarding an injury sustained by your student-athlete. Our ATC does NOT have access to your health records, solely the records reported from medical treatment for said injury. Without signing this the student-athlete could potentially be further injured due to no communication between ATC and coaching staff.
