    School Nurse: Managing a scene/coworkers

    Bravo Zulu...you did a great job. Most definitely do a debrief with Admin. You need their support to move forward with a plan that works for you, the medical control of the situation. Then maybe a larger group (faculty meeting) Lay out with YOU need during an emergency. No finger pointing. No complaining. Just the facts!! And my favorite line is: We cannot change what has been in done previous situations, but moving forward, we can! Keep up the great work!

    When parents are barriers to care

    Just got sidestepped by a grandparent for the kiddo who isn't feeling great and wants to go home. Afebrile, not vomiting , good color and has missed a number of days already taking care of the parent...agreed to stay (it's after noon). The kid agreed a lot of school had been missed to cirumstances of which they have not control and that missing again is not a great thing, that 1:30 left would be ok to deal with... On the way home per gram...aya yay yay

    The rules apply...until they don't...

    Free, Appropriate, Public Education every child in the United States is entitled to a free appropriate public education from the ages of three until they are 21 years of age. NTX. I think North Texas

    School nurse roll in IEP + 504

    All of the above, and I tell parents this. It levels the playing field, so to speak, so that access to their education is the same as everyone else.

    The rules apply...until they don't...

    This is NOT representive of most parents...and I probably should have made a disclaimer to that effect. But the frustrations are real! And get magnified when these issues get in the way of all the other stuff happening. I really do love my job!
