    Absolutely! We have kids that come in and say they need their inhaler and when asked why "I just think I need it". If their lungs are clear in all fields, they sit with water and are rechecked after a few, if no changes RTC. Wheezes and chest tightness I will obviously give it to them, but some are just using it for avoidance reasons and sympathy.

    Just curious if you guys have policies/procedures for teachers/staff to follow when a child has a possible head injury. I had a call where the child fell on the play scape and couldn't move. I got there to find the teacher ambulating the child to me. I instructed them to sit on the bench and one look at the kid I called 911. They ended up having a concussion. This seems to be a common practice with teachers/staff. Any thoughts?

    This happened to me 2 months ago while at school, it was Bells. I waited til school was over and went to ER and got tons of Prednisone for 10 days. As far as EMS, we would just take vitals and drop off in triage.
