- Apr 17, '12 by Purple_ScrubsAmen, Flare. I hadn't responded to this one yet because my words failed me, and then there you are putting my thoughts into a perfect post
I can usually forgive the students for their urgency, because what doesn't seem like an emergency to a little one, but it is the adults who I get cranky about. Surely any grownup with a lick of common sense should realize that life threatening or urgent medical conditions take precedence over other matters, but sadly they do not. I was recently reamed by my principal for not leaving a student who I was assessing for a playground injury (rule out head injury, as well as bleeding wounds covered in dirt, etc) so I could answer the office phone. Um, no.

Of course it was a different time and most of the Nuns I had are rotting in Hell now.ok..... if she called any child by name - that would be against the law... so yes of course we come up with little nicknames to tell a story to protect the privacy of PEE PEE PANTS.
- Apr 17, '12 by nightie-night nurseI just assumed she was describing the problem. There was no outcry for saying she had multiple head injuries in the clinic. Peepee pants was a quick way to type it.
Quote from FlareThat was my first thought, I am glad no one hears what runs through my mind sometimes.As far as using terms that some people object to - well... you should hear the things that run through my mind and get filtered out before i speak to my students/staff/parents. Forums like these are a chance to let the filter have a bit of a rest within reason. Although it seems sometimes, the longer you've been doing this, the worse your filter works.Last edit by nightie-night nurse on Apr 17, '12 : Reason: spelling
- Apr 17, '12 by nurseboobooQuote from Merlynoh boy... well it's like nightie-night nurse said - she was describing the problem with a name... and not saying the kid's real name.... I had a student who used to poop their pants every day @ 1:00 because this child wanted to go home.... I suppose if I was talking about it, I would have said something along the same lines for that student.The Nuns that I had in Catholic School uses to call us names all of the time. Of course it was a different time and most of the Nuns I had are rotting in Hell now.
- Apr 18, '12 by SchoolNurseTXstyleThanks to all of you who have jumped to my defense! I truly did not know my rant would cause such a fuss. I have not posted in a while before this post and was just looking for support and understanding.
- Apr 20, '12 by nhnursieYou would not even believe the names that came to my mind today (when I was desperately looking for a girl who has seizures that may be triggered by strobe lights ), when we had a fire drill today...why could I not find her you ask? oh...she is now HOME SCHOOLED and NO ONE told me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was on the radio trying to locate her, trying to speak in code so as not to be discussing a kiddo on a public airwave, disagreeing with someone when they said she was home schooled .....YA! I looked like a moron!!!!!!!! The "name" for the person in guidance who should have told me does not bear repeating.......
