I am the only school nurse at my school w/ 1 assistant to 850 students and 200 staff at the high school level (9-12).
I have begun using school nurse software (Student Health Manager) and now have a problem that I had not anticipated.
Entering all the information from my annual Health Questionnaire into the database is VERY TIME CONSUMING AND MONOTONOUS. My assistants role is deteriorating into that of data entry person and I need her for many other things.
I am trying to think outside the box here and am begining to wonder if all this (usually redundant) information needs to becollected annually.
I am considering a 1 time form and them a follow up annual letter/miniform as a reminder for those that need to update information periodically.
However, I want to be careful that I am not implementing something that I will regret later....
Did you faced this issue when you went online?
Do you feel strongly about how often this data should be collected?
Any ideas, thoughts, advice regarding this matter will be greatly appetiated.
