Today I had to hang up on the person I was talking with on the phone, run down the hallway to tend to an EMERGENCY...bloody nose...for a 7th grader...who gets bloody noses...bad ones... ALL. OF. THE. TIME.

I'm laughing about it now. Not so much earlier.

Some people really freak out at the sight of blood. Surprisingly, those people menstruate. I kid, I kid... sorta.

I have been flagged down for "a lot of blood." that was one small drip on a kid's shin. Cracks me up.

My tongue is very loose today!!! First, i saw the teacher in the hallway that sent a kid because he had a 98.4 "fever" and asked her if she has a thermometer in her class.

Then, I was trying to scan a concussion plan at the copier - and it got eaten!!! trying to get it unstuck when a teacher comes to me "you have patients waiting." My reply: yes, and if they were at an ER - they would have to wait even longer. I have to do paperwork throughout the day - not like I have a lunch or a planning period to do these things.

Like I lollygag around ignore students..................

If I were to leave it stuck like that - then front office would be mad I left it for them to fix.

Funny how faculty turn into a "deer in the headlights" when something happens! I've had the same thing happen and still does after being at the school for 14 years I would have thought they would have calmed down a little. I just take every report and radio call "with a grain of salt"...

Yes, and I ask them "Do I need the wheelchair?" That makes them stop and think about it...

My prior school was horrible. EVERY.DAY with the wheelchair. Half the time the kid would not even be there on my arrival "oh, he is better so we sent him to the clinic."

It got to the point that I took my sweet, easy time........

Apparently broken acrylic nails are now a medical emergency. :banghead:

No, this is not your personal nail salon, here's a piece of tape, go back to class!
