    i do have an autistic class - 3 actually. I gotta say - the class for the older kids got a new teacher and since my time in dealing with that classroom has plummeted. The others are actually pretty sparse too. I am fortunate in that my staff recognizes that these children have behaviors that include making themselves vomit - sure not every vomit is a behavior and some of these children eat strange soft diets resulting in consistent soft stools - but when they come to me because their stool is liquid and peeling the paint off the wall, i'm good with sending the kiddos home.
    I think we're all in a good place right now.

    You did the right thing. Only when we set reasonable boundaries will the staff "get it."

    Poop on a shoe is not a medical issue.

    Nor is the hem of a dress coming loose.

    Nor are broken glasses. (I am terrible at trying to fix them anyway.)
    Yes to this!! I hate that the teachers send me broken glasses. It's not like we had a unit in school nursing school that was on glasses repair. I'm terrible at fixing them. Those freaking little screws - and half the time it's a break that can't be fixed in mt office anyhow so I just toss the pieces in a ziploc and tell the student to either call home for their spare pair or do their best.

    I'd thought the same thing. I don't see this issue as a nurse responsibility, but I consider it inevitable that you'll be pulled into it. If transgender students already use the school nurse bathroom, then you are in effect already involved.
    It's so complicated.
    You see, i don't necessarily see it as such. I see it more so as a student that simply prefers to use my bathroom. The contents of their underpants isn't really any of my concern. My bigger concern usually is that there was another kid in there puking up the world not 5 minutes ago and now a perfectly healthy kid wants to use my lavatory - oh child - let's at least spray some sanitex.

    i totally get that. I discussed with the IT guy about ways of being able to call parents from a numbers that wasn't the school's but also not my cell- he tried to explain Google voice to me. Doesn't sounds like it would necessarily help your particular situation right now, but i did think about it for the future. I still don't think i totally get it though.
    I have a few parents that really only text - some due to Deafness, some due to lord only knows why - contacting them is a pain right in the rear end. When i was in walmart the other day, I sincerely thought about investing in a burner phone for work purposes...
