I made a mistake yesterday and now I need to talk it out with whoever is left.One of my kiddos came in yesterday saying he fell off the monkey bars onto some grass earlier in the day, landing on his R side and arm. Full ROM in the arm, positive pulses, capillary refill This morning, he and mom are in my office. R arm is in a soft cast. Mom said they are following up with orthopedist to determine if it's a fracture or a sprain. The arm swelled up last night so mom took him to urgent care. Turns out, the student didn't fall right from the bars, he jumped from the platform and tried to grab one of the further bars and fell from there. He also didn't tell mom that he fell when he got home because he had a basketball game last night and he didn't want to miss it. It broke my heart because HE kept apologizing to ME for not telling me "the whole story" when he was here. Poor kid.Anyway, I told mom my assessment from yesterday and apologized for not calling home. She didn't seem angry or upset but I still feel terrible. Determining when to call home has been one of the steepest parts of the learning curve for me since taking this job. It didn't even occur to me to call, he really seemed okay to me. I usually call if there's even any doubt. Anyway, the principal followed up with mom after she left my office and said mom was fine with everything which made me feel better but I am still sad and feel guilty. I just wanted to sound off to you guys. Sorry this is so long. All my posts are too long!
