    MHDNURSE got a reaction from scuba nurse in My very first squad call   
    Nice job!  I have kids in here all the time with "super skinny" jeans and they tell me they have a cut on their knee or something similar and I can't even assess it b/c the jeans are so tight they don't roll up 🙄  I miss the days of boot cut jeans!

    Sadly, thank goodness.  Mom is challenging in terms of follow-through on things so I am so thankful that he has been so eager to be involved in his management.  He self tests and self injects too 🙂  Obviously I triple check everything but I love that he is so eager to grab the bull by the horns!

    MHDNURSE got a reaction from ruby_jane, BSN, RN in When do you call?   
    LOTS of flu here in MA, including my own son and husband.  What I am noticing though, is there are still SO many people who say "I have the flu" but have not actually seen a doctor and been diagnosed with influenza.  I have also had several parents say their kid had the flu, only to find out it was a GI bug that they were calling "The Flu".  I even has a teacher come back after being out two days saying she was down and out with the flu.  I asked her about symptoms, if she took Tamiflu, etc. and then she says "On I never went to the doctor and didn't have a fever, just threw up a few times".
    I am sure there are several that had the "flu-like" illness that was not influenza, and several who had the flu who never got diagnosed...really hard to keep track around here.

    ADD medicine capsule found in Kinder's pocket.  Called mom.  "Oh, I was sending that home with him for Grandma to give it to him after school."  The apple doesn't fall far from the tree!

    We didn't have a school nurse, but I was the kid who faked sick to stay home at least once a month.  I discovered the benefits of a "mental health day" early on in life 🙂

    Ha! We have early dismissal today for a coming snow storm later this afternoon.  Wednesdays we usually have early dismissal, so I am sure tomorrow I will be thinking it is Thursday.

    MHDNURSE got a reaction from RNTadaaaa in Diastat for the seizure student   
    I have two students who have very different types of seizures and both of their Diastat orders are for "any seizure lasting >5 minutes".  I had to give Daistat for the first time in the Fall and by the time I got up there (I was 4 floors away) I had to go by the teacher guessing it had already been five minutes.  Better safe than sorry and it took me a couple minutes just to open the package, clear the area, put on the gloves, lube, get the student's pants down and get him in the correct position, etc.  Seizure stopped within a minute after I administered it.  My motto with Epi pens, Diastat, etc. is better to give than sit there and question.  Get clarification from the MD if it is ANY seizure activity, or a specific type of seizure activity.

    MHDNURSE got a reaction from brownbook in PARENTS say the darndest things   
    I just had a dad say to me after I informed him that his kid has missed 18 days of school so far:
    "Well, he is so far ahead of all the other kids in his class, what's the big deal"?  😳
    Meanwhile this kid is a total space cadet, definitely has issues with processing...
     
    What fun things have parents said to you lately?

    Ugh, I just had a mother on the phone tell me that her dear son could eat almonds at school because they are "not peanuts" and don't have "nuts" in the name so they are not "real nuts".  🤬
    No honey, the only REAL NUT is YOU!  Crazy people!

    Student with no previous medical diagnoses has textbook absence seizure, call parent to inform, advise to pick up and take them to get checked out. "I bet they just fell asleep with their eyes open again, that's happened before." 😳

    A kinder threw up yesterday. Twice. Not Bigfoot pukes, either - once in front of the teacher and once in front of me about an hour before school ended. Mom comes, I give her our written policy on keeping children with emesis home for 24 hours.
    This morning dad is in the clinic yelling at me about how it was something she ate and how she will miss her field trip. You bet, I'll just put that kid on a bus sir where she might puke AGAIN. He said "Well, YOU'LL have to tell her." No problemo.
