School Nurses - "ouch reports"

  1. I have just started a new position as a school nurse. I am interested in developing a form that can be sent home with students to let parents know that the student had a minor injury at school - scrape, bump, etc. I am thinking any first aid or care delivered should be on the form as well as any signs/symptoms of further injury the parent should be looking for.
    As I said above, this form would be for minor injuries only that the parent would'nt necessarily need to be contacted about in the middle of the day (I would definitly contact the parents for something major).
    Does anyone out there have a similar form already in use they could send to me? I would really appreciate any ideas/info.
    Thanks!

    I work for Head Start as a school nurse. We have what we call cuddle grams. When a child gets hurt we fill in information like what happened, what kind of care was given, the time the child was hurt, the date and information like that. This way parents know if their child has a scrape or a bruise then they know how their child got it. We also keep a record of it that way if a situation comes up with child welfare the parents can say that they did it at school and have proof. I sometimes make my own forms and get them approved by my boss before I send them out.

    LPN 90 - I am the new school nurse at the Alexander Dawson School in Las Vegas. Maybe the term school clinic threw the receptionist off. The info I gave above - fax and email are correct.
    Is there some way I can contact you?
    Thanks!

    This question is for the head start nurse. Can you tell me how your day goes and do you like it. The pay is so horrible but I figured if I enjoy it may be worth it. I was just offered a positioh here in Texas today!
