Has anyone had the experience of having to go to the school administration about their child's school nurse? The nurse in our district is compulsively calling in sick. Although a lovely person, her absences are causing a lot of stress and inconvenience for our family.
The substitute nurse that the school has filling in is a menace! Yesterday, my son had a low reading and was sent back to class without being given a snack. Thank goodness we were in school for his christmas play and we noticed he was exhibiting hypoglycemic behaviors. We stopped in to the nurse to check his monitor for his daily readings and saw that he was tested 15 minutes prior and was sent back low with no action being taken. I am furious and hoping for some advice or feed back from others who have been in this situation.
The same nurse was in today, and I decided to take a personal day, because I fear for my son's health and safety! Thank goodness we only live a block away from school. Please help, what would any of you do?
