I just graduated from Nursing School in 2010 and was asked to be the Band Camp Nurse at my alma mater last year. I work full time on a Med/Surg floor at a hospital. At camp, we got a visit from the CT DPH and I was scared out of my mind. I have poured through DPH's website and have tried google searches. DPH told me last year my standing orders weren't enough and were limiting what I could do with my license. I had orders for ibuprofen, kaopektate, tylenol, benadryl and pepto and parents checked off if I could give those meds. So what else do I need?
I also had a diabetic kid. I'm wondering what other special orders I need for her? And do those come from her physician or the camp physician?
Any suggestions for me?
I'm planning on doing camp again this summer.
