    And, really, neither is vomit. Vomit happens. Sure, call me, I can handle it. But I'm not running to hold a kid's hair back.
    OMG Yes!! And it's not the type of emergency that I need to clear my office for and GO there either. I get that nausea is uncomfortable, but I promise that little Jaime can make it. And if you get some of these kids (malingerers) away from their audience, it's amazing how fast these symptoms clear up.

    Nausea is not an emergency, either.

    Oh . . . my . . . gosh!

    I was just stopped in the hallway at our LTC facility by a woman who asked "Are you still the school nurse?". When I said no, she said "But you were, right? So, I need to ask you a question about lice."

    Her daughter got it 3 times and she thinks it is from another girl in the classroom. I mentioned that lice don't jump, that lice isn't an emergency (but I said it in a nicer way) and referred her to the new school nurse.

    "The only thing that works on my daughter is if I dye her hair which I've done 3 times". Her daughter is in 2nd grade.



    The poor school nurse will be getting a phone call today.

    Sorry I'm late to the party....I was doing compressions on a louse. I refused to give breaths because I couldn't find a mask. Now the louse is dead, the family is suing, the child the louse belonged to is in hysterics, and the teacher is insisting I fumigate the room to kill all the lice that are jumping and flying around.

    Did you preserve the corpse of the louse you killed in a baggie on your bulletin board? For SCIENCE!

    I am sure the recipient of the CPR was the parent and teacher.

    When my best friend was in labor, I observed the worse case of head lice that I had ever seen! 2 little kids(probably 5&7ish) in the OB waiting room. I could see the lice crawling from a distance and when they all left the waiting room to go see the patient, there were live lice on the couch they had been laying on. I was not yet a school nurse, so I did not collect the little buggers in a ziploc bag for scientific study, bummer I know
