The parents are not even smart enough to tell their kid, do not go anywhere near the nurse!!! 

And the brother went around to everyone saying "me and my sister got Motrin this morning so we wouldn't have fevers anymore!" 😒

The last "I have a fever and mommy gave me medicine" that I had was a kinder who volunteered this information during his class' morning meeting. He neglected to mention that it was on SATURDAY and it was currently TUESDAY. Teacher was still freaking out🙄

Food stuck behind a kid's front tooth and I was called to the frontlines. Food. Behind. A. Tooth. Not like there was a hole in the tooth or infection surrounding the tooth, just the kind of stuck that happens when you bite into fresh bread kind of stuck...

I wish you could see my face right now. 🤦‍♀️

I had a kinder dragged into my office once because he had 'a potato chip stuck between his teeth'. He refused to let me try to dislodge it and the teacher's aide who brought him just stood there like a bump on a log until I told her there wasn't much I could do unless he wanted to cooperate. The vice principal reamed me that afternoon for 'not being patient' and said that the aide 'was a nurse too and got it out with no problem'.

I told him that if she WAS in fact a nurse (she was a med tech), she should know that this was not a reason to visit the health room and since she was so good, she should have tried to handle it her own self. I refuse to try and prize anyone's mouth open when they don't want me to and then have to deal with a parent screaming that I assaulted their baby.

Yeah, that didn't go much further. The secretary had known me since I was a baby and I heard her tell VP as I walked out, "Mr So-and-so, trust me when I say, let it go. You will NOT win an argument with her. He didn't need to be in the health room anyway."

I loved my kiddos there but the politics in that school and who was in with who just killed that job for me.

I am not prying anyone's mouth open either unless there is a danger to life or limb!!!! Not losing my nursing license over dental hygiene. 

I have had staff members want me to force ADHD meds on a student. Ugghhhhh, nooooo!!! I document and let parent know they refused. Once again, not life sustaining medication...

One 1st grader vomited yesterday, one single student. You'd think the entire school needed to be shut down and decontaminated. Every teacher has told me that "that real bad stomach flu is going around". One kid... I've seen every 1st grader with the slightest twinge of a tummy ache, several "my teacher thinks I look sick", even more "My teacher said I have a fever". Is it 4 o'clock yet?! C'Mon Now!

Geez, how did you miss the flu when he had such a bad case of the hiccups?! Wasn't it obvious? I'm sure the teacher knew it was the flu😂 I've never been so excited for extreme cold temps, closed tomorrow😁

I left early and he came up a total of 5 times, each time he was fine, just odd complaints. The secretary and AP also sent him back to class. You win some, you lose some... Praying we are closed tomorrow for cold temps.

I really thought I was going to have to cut an umbilical cord this morning on a 6th grade boy!!!! If you are lactose intolerant and your mom allows you to eat ice cream cake for dinner, those are called natural consequences. And if your kid has stomach cramps before school and you have a RX for antispasmodic medicine for him but instead of giving it, you send him to school and tell him to go to the school nurse to have his "air checked."  Then, you bring medication and proceed to take 35 minutes to hug, pet, coddle and moan about your poor sweet baby - you are just a giant waste of my time. This woman is an attorney on top of it!!! Kid has 17 absences so far. C'MON NOW!!!!

I have had Moms hang out in my health room for up to an hour, asking me to repeatedly take temps on their LD (with 'autoimmune disease' of indeterminate title that wasn't listed on anything we had on file) because said LD had 'overdone it at the dance recital' last pm and was now whining about 'not feeling good' and wanting to go home. Literally, an hour of, "I think she just overdid it, what do you think?" followed by me saying, "This is not my decision to make." Which is code for, don't ask me to parent your child, if you want her to go to class, then you can jolly well tell her that and be the bad guy.

Mercy Pete, people.
