we had our meeting with the school today, and matt will attend tomorrow. It was bogus and a waste of time. They already have a diabetic child in the 8th grade now, so its nothing new to them, they delt with her last year. What it boiled down to, was I crossed out the part that said the nurse could talk to the dr office direct, and she said if I didnt sign it matt will not be allowed to go to school. We went back and forth, her, stating in an emergency she should be able to contact the dr, I said in an emergency, they better be calling 911, I said we live 5 miles away, and really, who gets direct access to talk to any dr at a moments notice.... plus, add to it the fact, she is the nurse for the entire district and wont be at the school that much, why should she have access. becouse she is taking care of matt? she is never going to see matt.... the principles secretary is the one who will oversee matts care. I was very pleasant, I was nice. We finished the meeting with I stating she could talk to the dr, but I never filled out the form, and Im sure she is going to type up a new "contract" with access to talk to the dr, and I dont want to sign it. I have been up front, I have said its been forever since matt had been to a dr, I said remember, I have been trying for insurance since I moved here in april, and finally on aug 20 was granted health insurance for my children. she kept matt out of school last year with the matt needed an oregon dr to sign health orders, not a mn dr to sign the years health orders. Matts health orders were good for the entire 2011/2012 school year. I took matt to a dr last week, and that was a major joke, huge major joke, but he filled perscriptions for us. I then, had to make another appt yesterday becouse I got the forms off the internet this weekend after matts dr appt and needed the dr to sign, however, he is on vacation this week. So we saw a NP who accually took interest in matt, took blood tests and a urine test. she is also going to advocate for us with the new endos that we have to take matt to, becouse, our appt for matt to finally see a endo, is going to be january 14, 2013!!! after getting the miniscule chart from the clinic we just took matt to, the one that says he hasnt been to a dr since last november, the great endos there have determined that he can wait, and not get a sooner appt. what am I suppose to do, she said if I dont sign this so she can have access to matts dr, he cant attend the school, is that true? do we have any recource? must I let her have access? can she legally keep matt out of school without that signed paper, as long as she has the signed drs orders of what to do?
