Nurses Corner News
We are so happy to serve your children this school year!
If you are not quite sure what the role of the Middle school nurse entails, here is a brief overview of some of our responsibilities:
- We are equipped to check temperatures, look at throats, check blood pressure/pulse/ listen to heart and lung sounds. We cannot check Oxygen levels or look inside of ears.
- We can perform first aid to minor injuries. We cannot ace wrap injuries.
- We can give medicine if provided by parents; GSC medication policies must be followed (all over the counter medication must be in a new, unopened bottle).
- We will communicate with parents if there are situations that we need to inform you of, or if your child needs to be picked up from school.
- We do vision screenings of all 7th graders and report any that have not passed the screening.
- We are trained to respond to emergencies and there are 2 AED's located in Greer Middle School.
The assessment of illnesses are based on subjective data (what the student tells us) as well as objective data (what we observe), we do our best to provide the best care for your students. Our primary goal is to keep them healthy and also to keep them in class. Please feel free to call us if you have questions or concerns at 864-355-5807.
