  1. End Of Year Medications

    Well, now that I'm retired I can admit it. If we had epi-pens and inhalers left they got locked in my drawer and kept till the next school year. When mom came in with a new order the next school year, I'd give them back to her. I couldn't bring mysel...
  2. Medication Error in School

    Is there any update to this thread? I haven't been on here for a while and am wondering if I missed what ended up happening. This sounds totally malicious to me.
  3. Elementary vs. Middle School Nursing

    I did one year in an elementary and it was okay. I was then moved to a Jr. High School and spent 15 years there. I LOVED it. They're mouthy, don't know where they're headed in life, sometimes need comforted like the littles and at other times wo...
  4. What will school nursing look like after this pandemic?

    I'm so thankful I've retired! One way we got around this problem was to mark the student absent in the computer for the day sent home and the next day. The teachers were not able to change this, so they would call the attendance office to say the stu...
  5. C'Mon Now!

    I worked junior high for 14 years and felt the same way! There were definitely those that I really hated to see leave, then again....there were those that I was so thankful I only had 2 years to deal with.
  6. Autism and regressions - where do we fit in?

    I agree with the idea of calling cps. He is not getting the medical/psychological/psychiatric care that he needs or that is recommended. That is medical neglect. It almost sounds like they just let him do what he wants (no potty training, etc). That'...
  7. Getting out just in time!

    **That is the DUMBEST thing I ever heard of!!! Whose brilliant idea was this?? Tell her you want evidence based info on WHY this is good idea and how it will improve your nursing practice!! **I just want to know what in the name of God happened that ...
  8. Getting out just in time!

    We had a principal who made us do that one year. I did it for about a week, she thought I did it all year. ?
  9. This is Where the Cowboy Rides Away

    Congratulations to you! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I retired at the end of last school year and have loved every minute of it. I do miss the kids but definitely not all of the paperwork and fighting to get epi-pens and shot records!
  10. Why ? Just Why ?

    This was a very good article!
  11. Self Cath Resources???

    Our health assistants and special ed assistants all had student specific training to cath. Whoever happened to be free at the time the cath was needed did it. Anytime the health asst or I were out, the special ed assistant did it, leaving the other p...
  12. We live in a military town with a very transient population. I would frequently get medication from an out of state pharmacy and doctor with the medication form signed by a local physician. I never thought twice about it.
  13. Anti-vax parents sue to keep kids in school

    Personally, I think that if a parent wants a religious exemption they should have to produce a notarized letter from their priest/minister/whatever, stating their religion's objection to the vaccine. It would also need to be renewed yearly. My guess ...
  14. When do you call?

    Our health department has access to certain portions of our EMR's. There is a box for us to check if student has temp >101 and cough and/or sore throat. They pull the numbers weekly.
  15. Got thanked by EMS/Police and Mom!

    Good for you! It's so nice to have someone acknowledge that you've done a good job.
