wow, that is a long title. I was wondering about insulin injections at school in other parts of Canada. I know that the states has 504 plans and school nurses and that they have to give insulin injections, but I know it is not the case here in canada. We were told they are not allowed to touch insulin and if our son gets on the pump they are not allowed to touch that either. When I asked if we can get our son doing his own shots by next year (when he will have to stay for lunch) if someone would be able to watch to make sure he is giving the correct amount of units they said no.
okay, so i can understand the not giving insulin thing- liability and all that, but not even looking to make sure he is giving 3 units instead of say 6?? so every lunch and every snack I will have to leave my job, drive over to the school, find a place to park, go into the school, locate my son and look at his insulin pen before he injects it? I was already someone frustrated knowing I would be going to school to give insulin, but yesterday he started giving his own shots, but since he is only 5 (6 in Sept) I cannot say to him in the morning 'I have packed 90 carbs in your lunch. make sure you give yourself 3 units of insulin.' and trust that he will remember at all let alone give 3 units for sure. I was just wondering if this is the same everywhere or if this is just our school (division) or what.
