At a nursing message board I belong to, one of the members posted a news story about a 5 year old on a pump who's parents want teachers or assistants to be able to bolus for the child's lunch if she provides carb counts. The school isn't allowing it. While many of the comments were ignorant, all but a few people thought anyone besides a nurse or a parent should touch the pump. However, this comment took the prize: "Correct me if i'm wrong...but in order to be a candidate for a pump isn't the child supposed to be OLD ENOUGH to manage the pump himself...?!?!? Seems to me like this pump was handed out in error." Uhm, wtf? It drives me nuts when people are so ignorant, yet have strong opinions on subjects. Another person asked why he isn't on nasal insulin. WTF, these are nurses! Very disheartening.
