My 8 yr daughter has been dealing with issues from what is a traumatic injury to her perineum which required 2 surgeries to repair. She's having BM issues and was in nurses office. I received a phone call saying that she had pain and wanted to come home. I asked the nurse to let me speak with her and I was told "I'll put you on speaker phone" I told her not to as the questions I wanted to ask my daughter were private. The nurse told me that she does not allow students to use her phone as she does not want the flu, and put her on speaker. I told her once again, please take me off speaker I want to speak to my daughter privately and was again denied. I then went to the school to see my daughter and manage the situation. Can anyone please tell me if there is any privacy act that would cover phone calls? While I was there I had to listen to other parents talking to their kids on speaker. I don't think this is fair to any child. I cannot find anything specific in HIPPA or FERPA. Seeing other posts regarding privacy with head lice checks etc, I've seen that go on as well right in front of other students. I've seen kids with bloody noses sitting on a bench, others lying on cots in full view, obviously ill and waiting for pick up. I have to deal with the nurse regularly since my daughter takes daily meds. I'm hesitant about kicking the bee hive but feel strongly that I should be allowed to have a conversation with my daughter with out a room full of kids/adults hearing it. Before I approach the school principal I would like to find information that would back up my thoughts that she is not considering privacy especially when specifically asked for from the parent. If this is normal practice, please let me know as well. Thank you.
