For the HAs with no fever I usually ask them how much water they've had today and encourage more no mater what they say. I have a big timer in my clinic and set it for 10 min and tell them they have that long to rest here. Typically before I do that though, I ask what they were working on in class in an attempt to detect avoidance behavior. Almost always, esp. for 3rd grade and up, they end up deciding to leave before the timer goes off.
SAs with no other signs - I go full-on nurse here 😁 I ask "have you pooped today?" If they say yes I ask if it was diarrhea or if it was difficult to get it out. If they say no I ask when the last time was and encourage them to drink water and be active in PE and recess to get things moving. The look on their faces with all this BM talk is priceless! It has definitely cut down and those that don't really have anything going on. I also ask if they've eaten. If they say yes I ask if it made them feel better or worse. If they say no I ask why and also tell them to try to make it to lunch and see if that makes them feel better. If it doesn't, come back and see me. If they are obviously in distress I do the same as the HAs and let them rest 10 min.
Teachers and coaches at my school send a kid to me for any. little. bump. It's crazy to me. Did none of them get hurt as a kid?! Kids are rough and get hurt. Not everyone has a broken bone 😉 This is much more prevalent among teachers who are new and think thie is what they should be doing. Again, if they are not at all in distress and are moving whatever just fine, I tell them they'll be okay and send them on. If I ask what happened and they do a full demonstration by re-rolling their ankle, I tell them their best bet would be to go ahead and stop doing that and their ankle will probably feel better. Most other cases, and especially for the PK, K and 1st graders, I give them ice and tell them to leave it on for 15min.
