Does your school have a school nurse? Is it private? Public? High school or primary? What role do they have?
Our private school which has children from preschool up to year 12 doesn't and I feel that it should.
They have a sick-bay manned by very young women, who have done a first aid course but I am not that impressed by them. When DD broke her collar bone they sent her back to play ( and it was hurting so a teachers aid brought her back and they called me). When I came to pick her up it was so obviously deformed and swollen blind freddy could have seen it.
Her little friend ran into a pole the other day - was sent back out to play - came back not feeling well and the GP said she had mild concussion.
On top of that there are all the issues for the teenagers and the things they go through...where do they go for help or advice when they are 14? 15?
I know our state schools all have one so I was wondering what is happening in the rest of the country ( I should add that I am a nurse myself).
