I've gotten two calls on two different days from the same teacher to come get a kid that *looks* like they might vomit. Umm... I didn't realize that my mear presence would keep a kid from throwing up. What on earth would I do for him in the classroom? I let the teacher know that I was with my diabetic student and they said "Well, how long are you going to be?" I let them know that my diabetic students needs were a little more important that a kid who *might* vomit and that the student could walk with a trashcan down to my office. COME. ON. NOW.

0900 phone call: I need a nurse to 2nd grade right NOW! *click*

Grab epipen and emergency bag and run up the stairs, while mentally reviewing my emergency care plan kiddos. Arrive to find a student who had thrown up in the hallway and a teacher (not the one that called) yelling at me to "Do something, now!" Of course, the poor girl is miserable and said she threw up 5 times overnight, took an hour to reach anyone, mom denies the child was vomiting overnight. C'Mon Now!

0920 phone call from teacher that called earlier: I'm soooo sorry about that call this morning. I heard someone yell "Call the nurse, it's an emergency" and just called without getting more information. If I had known it was just vomit, I would have given the student a bucket and sent her your way. (Yay!)

Had a kid sit in my office for over an hour the other day because they flat out refused to straighten their knee from a 90* angle and swore they couldn't walk. Aside from a very superficial scrape (which they denied a bandaid for) I saw nothing wrong. Only complaints were when someone made eye contact or asked them what they were doing and then the theatrics came. They were even bold enough to say they were bored but because they were refusing to move it at all, I called parents. Took parents over an hour to call back but wouldn't you know, as soon as that phone rang, *bam* miracle. Leg was straight and they could suddenly walk. You wanna know a sure fire way to get on my bad side....🤨

C'mon now.

Dear Mr and/or Ms Snowflake,

You child suffers from a well known, but mostly harmless, condition known as "Status Dramaticus".  There is a cure for this condition but it entails you, the parent, putting your foot down, setting boundaries of acceptable behaviour, and sticking to them.

Please let me know if you would like more information about the condition and it's treatments.

Sincerely,

The School Nurse

I am just sooooo tired!!! Dealing with a situation that I cannot discuss.  However, it has become a giant time suck. 

This, on top of the usual stuff has got me beat down.

So, when kid is sent to me to remove a stuck ring for him and he tells me it has been stuck since Saturday - I almost just quite.

4 more days until break! C'MON NOW.....

I just a kid in one of my schools tell me that he can see super far and hear super good because of his Batman hat. He did good, so I believe him. But he was zooming around the office and my Nurse was like, oy vey.

High schooler with narcolepsy accidentally took his nighttime med at 0500 (apparently thought the wake up alarm was the med alarm) instead of 2330 like he's supposed to. Mom sent him to school with a quick text to some of his teachers and myself saying he can't miss any more school but that he'll be "in and out of it all day and is having difficulty coordinating his body to walk please don't make him use his fine motor skills" 😐. By the time I got to campus, he was nothing but a snoring blob in the middle of his classroom floor. 3 classmates had to physically pick him up and move him so he wouldn't be stepped on. Dad was super mad he had to come pick him up (I think more so at mom for obvious reasons). But I mean...

C'mon now...
