Hi! I'm BunnyBunny, but you can just call me Bunny. I love being a school nurse and personally think it's the best nursing specialty out there. :)

    What day is it?

    Ok, seriously, ya'll. We were off yesterday d/t freezing temps and rain and we have a delayed start today. I honestly had to look at my calendar like 4 times and keep reminding myself today is Tuesday - not Wednesday (was thinking I had to go sit at the un-fetch table). Maybe I need more coffee????

    Immunization Rate Question

    Good Morning, All! The state of emergency in Washington due to measles got me to thinking - in order for community immunity/"herd immunity to work, 94% of the herd has to be vaccinated/immune to the disease. How do I find out what the rate of vaccination is in my area/county/state? My school with 615 kids has >97% vaccination rate, btw.

    Happy Friday!

    We had a pretty nice week health room wise, but today has more than made up for it! As I said to my health assistant, days like these are why God made wine and chocolate.

    Child Abuse

    Also, the job of "investigation" is on CPS. If abuse or neglect is suspected, our (meaning school nurse, counselor, teacher, custodian - whoever the child reports it to) job is to report it. You need to look into your state laws and/or school district policy. I've worked in schools where, even if I was the one who suspected abuse, I was directed to advise the counselor so she could do the report.

    The panic before the storm

    I'm in Maryland, between DC and Baltimore - we got a two hour delay today. I didn't want a full snow day, we did that this past Monday, if we miss too many days of school, they'll extend our school year.

    Lice, Lice and more Lice...................

    Not that you are going to win this one, but have you tried educating your staff about lice and the fact that the AAP doesn't support exclusion? "Some schools have "no-nit" policies stating that students who still have nits in their hair cannot return to school. The American Academy of Pediatrics and National Association of School Nurses discourage such policies and believe a child should not miss or be excluded from school because of head lice." https://www.healthychildren.org/English/health-issues/conditions/from-insects-animals/Pages/Signs-of-Lice.aspx

    Lice, Lice and more Lice...................

    Years ago I dealt with the same thing. I finally just started keeping hair ties in my desk and when one of the teachers would send in one of the girls, I would pull their hair up into a bun and tell them to make sure not to share jackets, etc with their friends. I would send home the lice letter and call the parents at the end of the day. If I got any backlash, my response was that the girls education was way more important than lice.
