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????
My overall point in this post - we do the best we can with what we're given - yet we're still given grief and the shoulda coulda woulda by people that are not in our trenches.
