I will preface this by saying that although I do know we are fortunate to have a full time RN in our school, I do not like or trust her. Im not alone in this feeling ether. OK, the issue. Currently Jason is doing BG checks in his class. If he needs a correction he has to go to the nurses office to "do" his pump. Same at lunch. We post bolus, so he regularly goes up to the office after he eats. He has proven himself trustworthy and honest in all his D related tasks. He also has a 1 to 1 para with him at all times. She has been with him for over a year and she is truly a gem. I trust her judgement about J implicitly. However, because of the way NY law is written, only an RN can "give" insilun. Unless the child is deemed "independent". My quandary is that should I have J declared independent? The RN spends less than 5 minutes supervising him. His para counts his carbs and realistically he has memorized his lunches so he can usually tell the RN the number. Also J would be "doing" his pump with his para's supervision, just like he does at home with DH or myself. He literally wastes 15-20 minutes of class time every day going to the nurse's office for "nothing". He already loses enough time for his OT and PT, which he really needs. So do I have a valid reason or am I nuts?
