Agree! I was called on the radio for a playground emergency just last week. "Hurry and bring the wheelchair, student has fallen and cannot move at all!"

I take w/c and make the hike up to the playground to find said student up walking around. What the Heck!! Teacher said the student decided to get up.

It's a flipping miracle!!!

The student also walked all the way to the clinic to be assessed. 

WE must be on the same radio frequency!!!!  Im getting too old to be running with the WC carrying a 30 pound emergency bag.  They are gonna need to call 911 on this old nurse one of these days!!!!

At 2:55 today, a 12yr old boy came in to tell me he sat on a push pin he found under his teacher's desk. I asked why he was sitting under the teacher's desk. Oh, no, he just found it there. He then put it in his back pocket and forgot it was there and he sat on it and now it hurts. 

I offered to take a look to see if his butt cheek was bleeding and needed a bandaid. He politely declined and slowly started backing out of the office. I asked him what else he thought I was going to do about it. He shook his head that he didn't know, just that he thought I should know... 

Right.

Im working toward some major re-education in my building.  If I have to run to the playground for another " major emergency" only to find the little darling sitting up talking and laughing and being the center of attention, Im GOING TO LOSE IT!!!!!!! 

I've got so many non-emergency "emergency" stories.  I've tried saying "bleeding, barfing, on the floor, crying" to get them an idea of what I'll consider an emergency. I've tried the 6 Bs.  I still got a call to a classroom for an "emergency" because a 12 yr old lost a tooth and the teacher was convinced it was an adult tooth (spoiler: it was a baby tooth).  I still got a girl cruising in chewing gum saying "it's an emergency.  I've got a headache," while I was waiting for EMS with a student and said "emergencies only" to my secretaries. 

We've actually got new secretaries this year, and without even teaching them they're great at keeping non-nurse problems out of my office.  I mean they're handing out band-aids AND using common sense AND saying "you really need the nurse for that?".  I'm in heaven.

B) literally the only things that could possibly cause that would be rare genetic conditions that would have been discovered long before now or Ebola. 

 

Not true.  I've had students with bloody noses have the blood come out their tear ducts.  It's pretty freaky the first time.  **shudder**

So happy for you! Still nursing, I presume? What kind? 

Looking into insurance case management, home based. I have three decades bedside, I think I can comfortably step away from the patients.

School dismisses at 2:20. It's 2:47 and I am just now eating lunch. 

The other day I asked an IA if she could walk a kiddo back to class and she looked at her watch and said "if he hurries up. It' cutting into my lunch."

Took EVERYTHING I had to keep quiet.

Had a parent come in with a student for a headlice recheck.  Student had headlice a few weeks ago too so I told the teacher when we sent her home that she probably never truly got rid of it because if they left a nit the whole process started over.  The parent states that she is getting this from someone in her class because her teacher told her that another girl in there keeps headlice!  HELLO! Privacy invasion much?  I am so livid right now.  I politely told the mom that the teacher is not supposed to tell her about any other students in her class and that her child most likely never got rid of the problem from the first go round and we need to just focus on our OWN children!  I had a talk with the principle about said teacher but I know nothing will be done about it. C'mon now!

If mom truly believes her daughter "keeps getting head lice from someone else" then perhaps she should teach her daughter to not rub heads, share hair brushes, share clothing or hair accessories.  It's not too hard to not get lice.

Hey guys! Guess what! Apparently, our 4+ years of college education also earned us professional cobbler credit AND the opportunity to open a DSW in the comfort of our own offices! 

I am SO OVER being sent clothing/shoe repairs. I honestly think that the child should go to the main office and ask to call home to get something different brought to them.

Was informed that 2 different people (1 teacher, 1 office personnel) were looking in a student's ear with my otoscope last week while I was on another campus. Which explains why said student was 100% positive they had holes "all over their ear drum". Spoiler alert....their ear was perfectly normal (shocker, I know). 

C'mon now.

Student came up c/o of her back itching. The following conversation ensued:

Me: Hmm, no rash, no bumps, I wonder why it's itching.

Her: This girl on my bus done took off her sisters and and threw it at me! I think that made me itchy.

Me: *as straight of a face as possible* I bet her sister wasn't too happy that she snatched her hair. (Wanted so bad to say wig) Nonetheless, you're okay dear. Back to class. 

Gave a good little chuckle after she left.
