I need a quick response on this one! We are a small private camp. Our sessions generally have about 90-130 campers and most are healthy. There is one nurse on duty 24/7. We have a 8 year old camper that is wanting to come to camp. She is diabetic and wears an insulin pump. Our problem is that her doctor has ordered her BG to be checked at midnight and 3 AM (along with at meals and 2 hours after meals). I can not ask a counselor to take this responsibility. If she would have to get up every night for this, she would never be able to function for the rest of the girls in her cabin. The same goes for the nurse.
I have contacted the doctor. She is insistent that the BG's be done at the night times. (The day times would not be a problem for us). The mother does not think it's necessary. We have tried to think of different options including:
1) Having a staff member stay with her one-on-one (We do not always have a staff member available, so are hesitant to set this precedence)
2) Have a friend/family member stay with her. Her mother does not have anyone and this would also cost the camp extra money.
3) Have the camper go home for night. They live close enough to do this, however the mother doesn't want her to be singled out, like this.
4) Kindly tell the parents that we are just not set up to meet the needs of this camper.
I'd like your input. How have you handled (or how would you handle) this situation?
