GRRR! I think my child's HS nurse and I may butt heads more often in the future. I love our school, and we have two full time nurses assigned, they also want the kids to be as independent as possible. Went in this morning to tell nurse to change my DD's lunch ratio, due to highs after school. Nurse says, "we need new doctor's orders." Me. Surprised, but polite. "No you don't. Our care plan says parents can change doctor's orders as necessary." Plus our endo is 100+ miles away. Nurse is nervous, says no doctors in our area do this (note that we have no pediatric endo's in our immediate city). We do have some south of here, and some that travel here from the Ft Worth area. She changed the ratio, after she had me write something that said I wanted to do this. Really? Don't you think I know my own child? I understand they are trying to do their jobs and keep my child safe as well, the amount of paperwork and restrictions on medications is just ridiculous now. I have nothing but support for the nurses, and am glad they are there. But I know my child. We are not new to this, been doing this for 6+ years now, and my child is extremely self sufficient.
