Sorry! This is a plain ole VENT! I had a Pre K kid come down with no note, no pass, nada! Can't tell me his name, his teacher's name.....just looks at me and holds up a long gauze dressing. I look and see a giant burn on his arm. He does tell me grandma did, grandma did!
Ok, I am ready to call child protective services. But, that would be hard without a name, now wouldn't it????
So, I call an administrator to the clinic and she knew the kid, and went to pull the teacher that stated "I just needed you to rewrap that bandage, what's the big deal?"
Turns out, he ran into a hot iron, mom took him to the doctor yesterday, teacher brought me the note from the doctor, etc, etc.
Of course this took up 30 minutes of my time, the idiot teacher's time, and the vice principal's time!
Now, a simple this is _______ ___________ and here is the note from his doctor, could you please rewrap his dressing is all it took! Really, seriously???? I am a NURSE not a CSI. I do not have all day to follow the non-existent crumbs of clues that are given to me.
If this were an isolated incident, I would be ok. But, this is every single day! These people have degrees?????????
