I called mom twice, no answer so I call dad.
Me: Good morning, Mr. X, this is the school nurse from XYZ Academy
Dad: What's that?
Me: Um, the school that your child attends
Dad: Oh, ok.
Me: Your daughter has a fever and her mother is not answering her phone. Can you please come pick her up?
Dad: Well, I am kind of in the middle of something
Me: Well, are you able to reach Mom, because someone needs to come get your daughter and she isn't answering my calls.
Dad: I will see what I can do (hangs up)
15 minutes later...my phone rings
Mom: HI, I am X's mother. Did someone call me? (Yes, she really asked me that)
Me: Yes, good morning, this is Nurse C. from XYZ Academy (which by the way I said when I answered my phone) your daughter has a fever and needs to be picked up. Also, I wanted to let you know she mentioned you took her temperature this morning and she had a fever and was given Tylenol.
Mom: Um, OK
Me: Just to make sure we are on the same page, any student who has a temperature over 100.4 needs to stay home from school and is not allowed to return until their temperature returns to normal, without giving Motrin or Tylenol.
Mom: Yes, but she didn't actually have a fever this morning, she just said she felt hot and didn't feel well so I gave her medicine.
Me: Did you take her temperature?
Me: What was it?
Mom: (quiet for a few seconds) Around 101 or something
Me: That is more than 100.4 therefore she had a fever this morning.
Mom: OK, I will come get her
I cannot make this stuff up!!!!
