I have been a school nurse for the past 6 months, and I have come to find that some parents are so irresponsible and ignorant. I have students that come to me with fevers 101, and more sometimes feeling really lousy. I call the parents up and there responce is she can stay the day and I'll take care of it when she gets home. Hello! There is still half a day and the student goes home on the school bus. by the time she gets home her temp will be up the roof. Parents response "dont make a panic, she'll be fine, it's happened before" What would you fellow nurses do in a situation like this. This is just and example one one case but I get theses a lot. Possible sprained ankles, stomach virus, etc.
Yesturday was my most frustrating day :banghead:because I had to deal with more than one case like this.
One mother tells me that her child cried last night for three hours thats why he has a fever today.
Oh yeh the best one I have heard yet was "just let her stay with you all day" I am not a babysitter. Come and get your kid!!!!!!!!!
