I am asking because of a situation in my school. We have several kids with food allergies. I have complete allergy histories, Epi pens, bendryl etc in my office and have trained the staff in their rooms on the use of an epi pen but how far does the school nurse's role go?
Do you figure out all the logistics of field trips, where they can/cannot eat and how to figure it into the day?
Do you call mom or the allergist if there's something questionable they may be doing in science class? If mom doesn't know if it's questionable do you call the dr or ask mom to do it?
I'm a say yes type of person and always want to help others but lately I feel like I may be making things too easy and saying yes to things that really aren't my responsibilty. So what do you consider your responsiblities with food allergies, what falls on the teacher and what falls on the parent?
