... are they really a nursing issue?
I'm not talking about the kiddos that are legit sick with something acute or even chronic. I'm talking about the kids that just don't ask to go to the bathroom or are consistently presenting with behavior issues or looking for a reason to get out of class.
Just wondering your thoughts on this and figured I'd bring a little Coffee Talk to our table. "Talk amongst yourselves"
I have cleaned up a pooper before. We actually have one student with delays who still wears pull ups. His para usually takes care of him, but if she's not here & the sub isn't comfortable it comes to me. We had a K student this year who was pooping himself & couldn't/wouldn't clean himself up. I'm not going to have a kid sit in poop waiting for parents, so I helped him, with a witness. We talked to parents about it & they ended up pulling him because, for other reasons too, he just wasn't ready for kindergarten.
Kids that pee themselves come to me because I'm the keeper of the clothes.
There is one boy who had to come use my bathroom in kindergarten because he was purosefully peeing all over the bathroom in his classroom because he was mad. Same child, now a bit older, was found to have smeared feces on bathroom stalls upstairs. If there's another incident like that I'm guessing he'll be made to come down here again.
So maybe not a nursing issue, but in a school who else is going to deal with it?
