When I was a sophomore in highschool I dislocated my elbow during gym class and went to the nurses office. No joke, both nurses literally looked at me and said "We aren't sure what you expect us to do about it." I was so pissed that I ended up setting it myself, then called my mom to pick me up.
@SilentPlatypus, well, they probably weren’t trained to reset elbows, plus they would be afraid of lawsuits if they did it wrong. Right thing for them to do was to call your mom and have her take you to the ER
@SilentPlatypus, I broke my wrist in middle school PE after a hard fall the day we had a substitute. He saw me on the ground and sheepishly came over to ask if I was alright (I wasn’t, it hurt immensely). I’m a big guy and I didn’t want to look like a bjtch, so I told him I was fine and he let me keep playing for another 30 before class ended, while I had a massive lump on my wrist from all the swelling. I then went to robotics club, and only once I went to the doctor several hours later did I discover it was broken. So I don’t think school staff anywhere are good at recognizing injuries lol
@SilentPlatypus, unfortunately it's because of liability. It sucks, I'd like to be school nurse because of the great schedule, but they take away pretty much all your autonomy. Basically there for kids on prescription meds.
@SilentPlatypus, in highschool and still to this day, i have major nosebleeds set off by pretty much anything. So id spend at least a couple hours every week in the nurses office. Their brilliant idea to get it to stop is to tilt your head back, so the only option is to constantly swallow blood and get sick. Either way, theres blood loss, swallowing it doesnt do sh!t but make it worse. Needless to say all school nurses are good for is giving you a leaky ice pack and calling an ambulance if need be.
Once when I was like 9 years old. I fell and hurt my arm. Didn't think much of it and continued playing with my cousins. Later that afternoon my mom got concerned since my arm was swollen. I went to the hospital and the doctor said "Kids are reckless. He just bumped his arm". This was after an X-Ray I was dismissed and went home. They ended up calling me the next day. To tell me that my bone was actually cracked. I needed to be fitted for a brace. Like 12 hours after I was at the doctor's.
School nurse? That's a joke, I dont see a bowl of peppermints anywhere and why is there ice?
NI NC NE
That ice kinda looks like it's got a butt hole
Bone marrow: nice
