Legal Considerations andĀ Administration

medical portion of the form. The purpose of this form is to determine if the athlete
has any preexisting injuries or illnesses of which the medical and coaching staff must
be aware. Once aware of an athlete's condition, the sports medicine team can work
the athlete's special requirements into the training program and/or prepare for emergency conditions the athlete could encounter. Some conditions may even prohibit an
athlete from participating in certain sports. For example, an athlete having only one
eye or one kidney may not be permitted to participate in contact sports.

Special Instructions
Once a physician has performed a physical examination on the athlete, it is important
to make note of any special instructions that may affect the athlete's health. These
special instructions are based on the information obtained from the physical exam
and can be recorded on a form like the one shown in Figure 2-5.
Special instructions for each athlete may be recorded on a single team roster or
on individual forms. Although a copy of each form may be stored in the athletic director's office, original forms must travel with the coach to all practices and events,
both home and away.
These special instructions should be shared with other athletes in sports such
as cross-country and golf, where a large distance is involved, as well as sports with
a large number of athletes, such as football or track and field. Because the coaching
staff will not be able to be everywhere at once, the other athletes should also be aware
of the signs, symptoms, and emergency procedures. This information can be provided in a team meeting where the coaching staff, athlete, and athletic training staff
describe the signs, symptoms, and emergency procedures of a specific preexisting illness, such as an allergy to bee stings, in which it is vital that the other athletes know
where the EpiPenĀ® (epinephrine) is kept in case the athlete is stung.
