Okay Question, I just had a little girl in my office, 10 years old, that was unfortunately born with HIV from her parents. Well the doctor had to do very minor "surgery", he had to lance open an infection on her skin that was most likely caused by a spider bite. Anyways, they stopped by my office and asked for a return to school slip. I asked the guardian if she was going to wait until tomorrow to send the child to school and she said no, she's taking her back to school now.
Normally that would be okay but I dunno i don't want to seem ignorant but I was thinking they girl is still draining fluids and should probably take the rest of the day off, just to be on the safe side.
If I was the guardian I would have kept the child home for the day to let the infection drain and also to make sure nothing happens at school. I know that as long as the wound is properly dressed that it shouldn't raise an issue, but the girl is only 10 years old. Guess I have always been a "better safe than sorry" person.
Just curious if I am over reacting or just thinking to deeply on the subject. What would you do?
