Hello

  1. My name is Sharon Banks Tarr
    I am registered nurse who has practiced nursing since 1974 :
    Cardiac Critical Care, Respiratory ICU-(open heart, heart, liver/kidney transplantation, surgical )Military Health care as orthopedics staff, Medical-Surgical /critical care , charge nurse ambulatory care center, Infection Control nurse, clinic nurse Chinhea, Korea,Charge Nurse aboard USNS Comfort -Operation Restore Hope) Data Quality and Knowledge Management Director ,Naval Medical Information Center
    Health Supervisor/Camp Nurse (four years)
    I earned my BSN form the Univ of Pgh 1974, MN Univ , Respiratory Clincial Nurse Specialist, Pgh 1980
    Hold certifications: Informatics Nursing, Project Management and Knowledge Management
    Currently licensed to practice nursing in Pennsylvania and Maryland

    Recently I have accepted a position of Health supervisor for Day and Resident Camps

    I would like to establish a resource and collegial reference source base within the specialities of camp nursing and informatics through allnurses.com for instance:

    I am reviewing camp regulations and guidelines and have the following questions

    Specific to MD, VA and the District of Columbia is the trend for physicians to write prescriptive standing orders for tylenol, topical/oral benadryl,ibuprofen, and neosporin or towards self-medication with adult oversight (at campers unit)

    The prescriptive authority would be for medications listed on the health history/emergency authorization form . Medication and immunization history is requested as well as camper's weight and height

    If the camper self-medicates as with inhalers would the same prescribing physician serve as the prescriptive/standing order source of each camper?

    What are being used as adult:child ratios for day and resident camps
    campers ranging in age from 5-12 years of age
    campers 3-4 years of age (parents are unit leaders/ on site)
    Girl Scouting uses ratios specific to age , activity(high adventure) group meeting
