I don't feel good today.  C'mon can someone call my mom to come pick me up?  It would be pretty nice to lay on the couch at my parents' house and eat some homemade soup...

I can call your mom, but I'm going to tell her you don't have a fever and I don't have any reason to send you home.  If she wants to come get you, or let you drive yourself home, that's on her.

I had a kid bring me her birthday crown yesterday because it had ripped.  Taped it right back up.  This school is so lucky to have a full-time nurse to handle such emergencies!

OK, so they call the AED team to the cafeteria and I grab the bags and go running. NO idea into what. 6th grade girl choked on cheese and had to be heimlich'ed. she didn't lose consciousness so no ambulance. she did have to go home and have her parents get her seen by her doctor or the ER. She's most probably fine.

HOWEVER it took the school an hour and 15 minutes to reach her parents! Why? because their employers don't allow cell phones to be carried and also DON'T ANSWER the $%*&% phone!! 

What if I did have to send her in an ambulance?? What then employer??

Do schools ever confront parents when they are impossible to get in touch with in an emergency? I don't understand how this is acceptable? My kids have emergency contacts to here and back, Me, my husband, my in laws, my sister-in-law and brother in law plus siblings and cousins get added to the list as they turn 18. 

Grandmother in another state on the other hand, is not on the list. 

Rant over, but it added unnecessary stress to the situation

WOW!  They're lucky their kid doesn't go to my school...admin would have probably made us get an ambulance after being unable to reach the parents.

so... earlier this week (haven't been on so much as i've been crazy here) i have an aide come busting into my  office.  "I don't know WHAT you're going to do about this, but we have a kid stuck in the  playground toy."  Ok - this i gotta see.  I go out there, and sure enough one of my littles has a knee wedged between  the pipes in the playground toy and that knee is swollen!  Kiddo must have been yanking that knee for a while before calling for help.  Won't let me straighten their let, won't let me twist their leg.  It is wedged in there.  Greased it up with vaseline, no help.  Iced it - no change.   My 19 years as a firefighter makes me want our extrication tool, so i call in a consult via face time to our fire chief and show him the problem.  He agrees that the hydraulic spreader will work best and asks me if I want him to dispatch it as a regular call.  NO THANK YOU!! I'd rather not spend every day for the rest of the school year freeing a kid's leg from the playground toy just so they can see the firetrucks.  He says I'll be there in 10 minutes with the tool.  Kiddo is calm, so that's fine.  Superintendent is hanging with us, as I didn't want to do this without him knowing.    So hubby / firechief arrives with the tool.  He and I spread the bars juuust a tad to release kiddo's knee.  The day is saved.  I really should be getting paid extra for THIS type of service!

Anyone else have staff members always thinking you know the ins and outs of the health insurance plan/benefits???? This is the second job I've had where people have come to me asking about benefits. Why do they think I know any more than them?
