43. In my years as a Public School Nurse....

I have had to deal with:
asthmatics
allergies with epi pens
diabetics
colostomy
catheterizations
bipolar
schizophrenia
depression to the point of suicide watch
ADHD
spina bifida
traches with intermittent suctioning
g tube feedings
chemo pre and post
seizures including vasovagal stimulator
cardiac disorders
visually impaired
hearing impaired
abuse both physical and sexual
genetic disorders such as:
Familial autodysnomia can't regulate temp heart rate
Angelman syndrome
Downs
Retts


I had a kid come in with a ventilator but he had to be a 1:1.

Have you seen any kids like that in you school? As a public school we have to accept these children AND provide services for them.

These students are in addition to my 'regular' kids that have temps, strep, injuries, periods, lice and what ever.

Do you have a full time nurse, or just one that comes in several days week. Or is it just the school secretary that gives the meds.

And what about the screenings:vision, hearing, scoliosis, or antes nigrocan (diabetes). Our state requires them of public schools...and this is the red state of Texas.
