  1. Medication Expiration Dates

    I have always done the end of the month.
  2. Elementary/Middle School Lunch Guidance

    Same at my campus. Teachers are pretty good about making sure everyone has a lunch - whether it is their own from home or having the students go thru the lunch line and get a tray - we also have free breakfast and lunch in our district. If kids don'...
  3. Hanging Out with Coworkers Outside of Work

    I have no problem hanging with coworkers outside of work.... but only ones that I like and actually friends with 🙂 I am a school nurse so I have a handful of teacher coworkers that I get along with, we all like each other and are friends outside of w...
  4. Need Advice

    Yes, you are correct, If there is a contract involved you may have a problem. But in all my years (15+ years) working Home Health I have never had to sign a contract to work, so this has never been an issue. I guess I have been lucky.
  5. What are off-limit medications for school setting?

    I have had a couple of requests over the years to administer allergy shots either by parents of students or other staff members - I have always declined. No way would I take on that responsibility. I went through the whole allergy shot thing fo...
  6. Need Advice

    Yes, very understanding. My experience with Home health is that there always seems to be a high turnover of staff - from nurses to the office staff. No hard feelings from the old agency - I still get the occasional call/text to see if I am intereste...
  7. Need Advice

    Parents decided to change agencies because the new agency could handle most of the care for their child from PT, RT, supplies etc. When they decided to change agencies the parents asked me if I would be willing to change and I agreed as long as my p...
  8. Need Advice

    I would contact the new agency and see what they can offer you. I have done PRN home health as a second job for years now and have changed agencies a few times to stay with my current patient. I have never had any issues of leaving an agency, gettin...
  9. End Of Year Medications

    I don't think there is a better way......I hate that there is so much wasted at end of the school year and from someone who didn't always have great health insurance, its bothersome for me to throw out the inhalers and Epipens knowing how much they c...
  10. Personal Cellphone Reliance at School?

    Nope....I would be OK if the school would provide me a cell phone. But I am not using my personal phone for work business. What about those staff members on a fixed budget with a bad cell plan? Using all their data/minutes etc for work and no compen...
  11. Student w/ PDN

    why are you doing the assessment? If he has a PDN, she should be the one as part of her employment. You shouldn't need to do anything with that student unless it was an emergency. Same here....
  12. Vaccine Database/Parents Providing Vax List

    What are your state requirements? Our district policies follow the state requirements. I am in Texas, our district does not allow enrollment unless we have all the documents in order including a complete immunization record or Exemption Affidavit. ...
  13. How some kids are being raised...

    Playdate???? so odd.....I stopped using that word with my kids when they finished preschool.
  14. Medication Safety in the Childcare Setting

    I am an elementary school nurse. My district has pretty strict rules regarding medication and because of this parents are easily irritated when it becomes an inconvenience to them when asked to follow the medication policies. You would not believe h...
  15. I am a school nurse - maybe not looked down upon but many have the impression that school nurses do nothing but give out bandaids and ice packs. I have run across so many people that don't realize that there are ALL types of kiddos with many differe...
