Hello my school nurse friends
I sent a student home about 2 weeks ago for throwing up in the classroom after lunch. The day I sent her home, she did not have a fever or anything. So the student came back to school the next day and the teacher sent her up. I checked he fever again and no fever. I also spoke with mom and mom stated that she did not throw up once the whole time she was home and that sometimes she throws up after lunch because she doesn't like something. So per policy, it's suggested that a student go home for illness and suggested that students be kept out of school for at least 24 hours fever free and vomiting free with no medications. So I went to the principal and asked her does she want me to enforce the policy on sending students home for saying they threw up or if they throw up after lunch and if they threw up and returned the next day. The principal said no. So mind you this was 2 weeks ago. The teacher of the student comes in the office yelling and blaming me for kids being out sick because of that incident that happened 2 weeks ago. She was also in the break room blaming me. I will be talking to the principal about her behavior. Any other suggestions...I'm just not for this nonsense anymore.
