Could any of you School Nurses share what your protocol is for students with SUSPECTED chicken pox ? Do you exclude the student with the questionable pox/papule/rash and do you ask the parent to get them checked because they MAY be contagious?? Thanks
did ya ever get the feeling that all teacher's really want is for you to send their students home ?? i do. every day. i could make them all happy if i complied with their wishes. i thought we were suppose to insure that kids stay in school ?? or was i mistaken about that ?
i am wanting to go to a new system next year for logging students in to the clinic. we do not use an electronic system. i just log them into a spiral bound notebook. with over 1200 kids it's getting frustrating !! i would like to go to single cards for each student and keep them in a small file box. is there anyone out there who uses this kind of system ?? i would love to know where to purchase these cards.
thanks everyone !!

allowing tired/sleepy kids to sleep in the clinic is a bad thing to start. they will be exposed to lot's of illness's while they are there taking a nap. they will leave there with more than just sleepiness !
