What do you when a student accidentally stabs with pencil lead?
I know pencil doesn't have actually have lead, its graphite and harmless. A student came in with a note from the teacher asking if i could remove it with tweezers, it was on his palm. However there is not a visible pencil tip , the area is red and looks stained from the graphite. So i sent him back after washing the area with soap and water and applying a bandaid, and giving him an ice pack. He comes back 3 hours later with the same note, because he feels there is something in his hand, i looked at it again but i don't see anything but a small amount of skin peeled and the grayish color. He still wanted me to look for it, but when i used the tweezers to look for the pencil lead, he jumped up and i told him i didn't want to continue if it hurt him. So i wrote a note to the teacher letting her know pencil lead is not real lead and i was unable to remove anything. Then the student tells me , the teacher said she wanted to e-mail his mom about the pencil incident.
