This is a discussion on Do you replace MIC-KEY buttons?? in School Nursing, part of Nursing Specialties ... Hi fellow nurses! I have a darling special needs child that routinely gets her MIC-Key button out...by skoolrn Nov 30, '11Hi fellow nurses!
I have a darling special needs child that routinely gets her MIC-Key button out at home. She recently succeeded in getting it out here at school even though she is a 1:1 with staff. My district does not have a policy or procedure for school nurses to reinsert the MIC-KEY, so when she got it out Mom had to come and put it back in. Mom had a hard time re-inserting because it was out for 30 mins. Mom says it has to go right back in or it becomes impossible and then its a trip to the ED or GI doc. So my question is this: Do any of you replace GT's? Do you have a written policy or just a MD order??? Mom wants me to replace if it gets pulled out again but I won't without sometype of policy. And yes, she is wearing a belly band type wrap and a neoprene sensory vest and she has 1:1 supervision so you would think she would never be able to pull it out but.....SHE DOES! Any feedback will be appreciated!

- Nov 30, '11 by JolieYes. We do this in our district with a doctor's standing order, parental consent and proper advance training of the nurses.
Our support staff is wonderful about contacting us immediately and setting up everything so we can come in quickly (if we are in another building) and get it done in time to avoid a trip to the hospital.
It's all arranged in advance when we have our parent meetings in the weeks before school starts, and then we do some "dry runs" during our yearly inservice training with building staff, which occurs in early August.
