Less than 25 minutes after arrival at school student comes down just not feeling well, feels nauseous and his stomach hurts then proceeds to tell me he was throwing up all last night but mom wanted him to try to go to school today! C'MON!!!
Shocking update-mom's phones are all going to voicemail.
I love reading these good stories! It's a great post to look back on when it seems each day is full of the bad...
Earlier this week I had a 2nd grader in my office with 102 fever. Couldn't reach mom on her cell right away, got Dad but he was working 2 hours away. We both said we would keep trying to get mom. She comes in 30 min later and as she's leaving with her daughter turns to me and says thank you so much for taking such good care of our kids when they are sick. They are so lucky to have you. Just made me year!!
None and I am the only Nurse in the District so it was a really a figure it out yourself type of situation! Those were a fun first few weeks! Reach out to other Nurses in your district (if you have them) or in neighboring districts for help/questions. Good Luck!
Why is a child separated from their inhaler during PE?
Why aren't they bronchodilating before exercise if they have been diagnosed with Exercise Induced Asthma?
If they are wheezing, you screwed up by not allowing them to bronchodilate prior to exercise. .
What are the ages of all these kids who have their inhalers locked up in the office? We are going into 2017. Time to stop punishing kids for having asthma. I see 5 year olds who can tell me more about their medications than their caregivers can.
work on the 23rd off until the 3rd. It wont be enough time.
I'm a big fan of the movie Mr. Woodcock, where the high school coach forces the asthmatic kid to run laps to learn how to control his asthma. That's what we do at my school. Lock up the inhalers and make the asthmatic kids run laps to break them of wanting to use their inhalers. What do their doctors know about asthma anyway????
