    Back when we had semi private rooms, we were coding bed 2 while bed 1 whined and sighed and threatened to tell her husband that we werent paying attention to her, just her roommate! We just rolled our eyes. I can't believe the nerve of ppl.
    The nerve of bed 2 to code like that!! Some patients will do anything for attention!

    patient coding in room 2. Patient in room 3 can see all the excitement, and calls out to me while i'm running back and forth getting various supples from the unit that he is ready to be discharged. I called out that i couldn't right then - that a patient was having an emergency. His wife proceeds to follow me down the hall towards the room where the code was happening harping on how her husband needed to be d/c NOW. I literally had to stop her from following me into the room.

    As a whole, we school nurses are pretty receptive if you give us phone number instructions such as call my cell first or do not call my work number unless it's a 9-1-1 type emergency. I have plenty of parents that i have that type of arrangement with. A few that i email instead of call and they get right back to me. And the point is not keeping the child in my office for 2 hours. The point is not knowing what the plan is and having no answers for a child that wants their parent because they are sick or injured.
    I always say to my fellow staff members, when i'm calling, it's not to discuss what type of season the Mets are having. I am calling with purpose. When a parent calls me, they expect service and and answer - why is it so much that i expect an answer?

    Enjoy!! I have about 25 minutes till I slide down the bronto Fred Flindstone style. I'm in a play that has a short run this weekend so i'm going to go home and contemplate a nap before a later night than i am used to.

    my shock is more so in the amount of breakfast for lunch that is served. As a non breakfast person i say ewww. The students here have the "hot lunch" option and there are always other options. There is never a time they can't get a turkey sandwich piece of fruit, carrots or some other raw veggie du jour and a milk. My biggest complaint is the lack of a non milk option for students unless they want to pay for water.

    Parents hanging up on me used to really tick me off. Now i just think 2 things. #1 - now i know why their precious little darlings are so darned rude. Good luck succeeding in this world with that dose of vinegar ingrained in you and #2 - you hang up on me i consider the matter closed. I will even send a letter home to that effect if necessary eloquently stating that point that per our discussion which was abruptly ended, yada yada... vaccines due by or exclusion or whatever...

    Our free and reduced kids sit there, socialize, and throw uneaten food away. THAT irks me. We do have these "foods" that are in plastic wrap and I assume are microwaved. Just a bunch of junk AND no water option.
    The kids throwing away food irks me too. The breakfast foods are at least prepackaged and if it's still perfectly sealed, i'll take it and add it to my snack drawer for when they get hungry later on because they didn't eat. If they throw out their lunch tray there isn't much i can do for them other than offer them juice and crackers -which they usually turn their noses up at. Sorry, this isn't Burger King... You can't "Have it your way" in here.
