A camper comes in with a headache. How do you decide whether to give her Tylenol, have her lie down and rest in the health center, or tell her to go back to her group and drink some water?
This is one of our biggest challenges. The health forms make interesting reading, because we get the parents who are afraid we're going to medicate their kids too readily ("no over-the-counter medications! ever!") and others who are afraid we won't give their kids medicine if they need it ("if she says she has a headache, give her medicine. Do not tell her to just drink water"). Most of the health forms, of course, do not give such specific instructions. They just give us permission to use OTCs when the situation calls for it.
What do you do at your camp (or expect to do, if you haven't been yet)?
