    Nursing and tattoos

    I feel your pain...lol. Plus I am the elementary secretary due to budget cuts so my days can be pretty crazy!! Yesterday I had a kiddo come to me for an ice pack for this bruise he had on his leg since Monday...really?!?!?!? When I am at my wits end with some of the teachers I just simply escort the student back to class with the parent phone number and tell them I cannot do anything for them so if they want to talk to the parents they sure can. =-)

    Parents not giving ADHD meds...how far should we go?

    I work in a pretty small school...about 240 kids pre-k-6 and 160 in Jr-Sr High. I am not only the nurse but the elementarty secretary (budget cuts and all) I give (5) 8:00 am meds, (5) noon meds, (1) 2 pm med, and (1) 3 pm med. I agree with all the posts...yes, parents need to be responsible but as nurses, if we can help the child learn we must do out part also. It can get frustrating at times but I guess I would rather give the med here at school just so it is consistant.
