Well...this year has been bizzare to say the very least!! Aside from C-19, we are often the only medical person in charge of 500+ people. Kids staff and visitors.
We take care of illness and injuries, with appropriate followup and documentation.
We are responsible for ensuring all children meet immunization requirements set forth by our states.
We give daily and PRN meds
We do nursing assessments, especially on our medically complex kid. Then we do treatments as needed. Gtube feeds and flushes, diabetic glucose monitoring, insulin calculation and administration. Emergency meds Epinephrine, glucagon, MDIs and nebulizers.
We sometimes teach in the classroom, but more often on every visit that comes to your door, there is an opportunity to teach.
We case manage kids who have medically complex needs, attend meetings to support Special Ed and 504 kiddos
Just to name a few
But for me, it is about relationship building, helping families at some of their most desperate times, and being that person the kids can come to.
