Another incident at the same school that still raises my blood pressure..
Had a teacher send a Kinder in with a gallon size baggie FULL of bottles. Nothing like I'd ever seen before, they had typed labels taped on them and some had little pellet looking deals in them while others had liquid. There were no orders.
I called Mom, who apparently thought she was SOMEBODY. Told her that I could not administer the meds d/t improper transport, no directions, no med forms, etc. She FREAKED! Started hollering about how the child needed these and that they weren't really medicine but that they had the 'energy of what she was allergic to in them'. I still refused.
Fast forward about an hour and I was raised on the walkie that a parent was in the office. It was Mom, who had with her a piece of paper with penciled instructions on it, but no signature. It looked to have been ripped off a notepad, no letterhead or anything to denote from whence it originated. The principal was out that day, the vice principal was also away. The acting principal was a coach. He was completely out of his element. I pointed out the lack of necessary info on the paper and was met with 'The doctor isn't there today. His secretary wrote this. It'll do'. Um, no. No, ma'am it wont.
She refused to fill out medication papers, threw a fit when I told her the meds could not be carried back and forth in the Kinder's backpack ("These meds are too expensive to leave!") and told me "I know you're ignorant. You just don't know how it works." Coachipal asked if there was no way to 'work around' the situation but I had already called my head nurse and the answer was no. Mom stomped out.
The next day the principal told me I should have done a better job of handling the situation. He was at a loss to say how, though.
Several weeks later, the secretary came in toting the little one, wanted a temp check. It was 104 and she had a rash that looked like chickenpox. I held my arms out for her to sit in my lap while I called Mom but secretary insisted on LO staying with her. I later found out that in addition to everything else, Mom was an antivaxxer (which explained the varicella) and had told the school that if they sent LO to my office again, she would sue.
This was over a decade ago but I still remember that baby's name. I miss that school like I'd miss a root canal without anaesthesia.
