Student in our school had several seizures this morning, ended up needing Diastat and even then took 10 minutes for seizure to fully stop.  EMS took her to ER which happens to be right next door to our school.  Mom just called and says "ER just discharged her, can I drop her off for the last 3 hours of school"?!?  🤯

Sounds like the sweet thang would've been better off at school than with the ding-dong of a parent.

Explained why she needed "rest" and supervision after a large load of rectal valium and back to back seizures...mom was like "ok, figured I would ask anyway"...

I have a stupid question. I'm familiar with rectal Diastat. However, I've never given it. Do you use lubricant before administering?

Not a stupid question, but there should be packets of lubricant in the kit with the syringes.
