Hello my school nurse friends,
It's Monday!!! And the shenanigans has begun
.....from the teacher sending me a student with an old sore around the nail bed that has a small piece of skin around it that the teacher wants me to pull the skin off OUCH!!!
Here's a band aid on your way. The 8th grader that comes in stating he has a sinus infection but haven't been to any doctor mom diagnosed because she's retired from the hospital but mom looks like she 21
. And I really need to know her secret of how she retired so early at a young age
. And the list goes on.....
YEP IT'S MONDAY ALRIGHT!!!
Let the two weeks before Christmas break shenanigans begin! Had a parent call me to let me know that LD forgot to take anti-seizure med this morning, but "she should be fine just wanted you to be on alert" not to mention that I have asked multiple times for meds to be kept at my office just in case she does miss them.
Or the kiddo who comes in saying she just need was change of clothes which mom brings. Then she breaks down and starts crying when mom arrives about her menstrual cramps which mom already gave her ibuprofen for. This kid has missed so much school and I try to encourage the student to go back to class, mid-terms are coming up, yada yada yada. I leave my office to go tend to another kid and mom has signed her out. Ugh!
Or the little one who was c/o of a sore throats since Saturday. When I asked what mom said, she said "mom said I need a peppermint". That one made me giggle!
