School Nurse Refuses To Give Student His Inhaler During An Asthma Attack

(RN)   School says medical release form lacked parent’s signature

Volusia County School officials stand by a Deltona High School nurse’s decision to refuse a student his inhaler during an asthma attack, citing a lack of a parent’s signature on a medical release form.

“It’s like something out of a horror film. The person just sits there and watches you die,” said Michael Rudi, 17. “She sat there, looked at me and she did nothing.”

He said the school dean found his inhaler during a search of his locker. The inhaler was still in its original packaging — complete with his name and directions for its use; however, the school took it away because his mother hadn’t signed the proper form for him to have it.

School leaders called Sue Rudi when her son started having trouble breathing. She rushed to the office and was taken back to the nurse’s office by school administrators and they discovered the teen on the floor.

“As soon as we opened up the door, we saw my son collapsing against the wall on the floor of the nurse’s office while she was standing in the window of the locked door looking down at my son, who was in full-blown asthma attack,” Rudi said.

Michael Rudi said when he started to pass out from his attack, the nurse locked the door.

“I believe that when I closed my eyes I wasn’t going to wake up,” he said.
The Director of Student Health Services, Cheryl Selesky, said that parents must sign the medical release form each year, which allows students to carry their prescribed drugs with them in school.

This year, the district had no record of his Rudi’s signature, said Selesky.

“I mean its common sense if I saw an animal on the street in distress I would probably stop to help, why wouldn’t she help a child,” Sue Rudi said.
But Rudi is a senior, and his mother said the district has had records of his asthma throughout his years in the school.

She thinks her son could have died because of a technicality.

“How dare you deny my son something that we all take for granted, breath,” said Sue Rudi. “Why didn’t someone call 911?”

Selesky said the district is looking into whether proper procedures were followed by the school, and while nurses can’t give medications without the proper authorization, it is district policy to call 911 when a student cannot breath.

Selesky could not explain why 911 was never called.

“I understand if you can’t give it to him call 911,” Sue Rudi said. “Why did you not call 911?”

Sue Rudi said she worries about the next student caught in a similar situation, and has filed charges against the nurse with the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.

“I want to press child endangerment charges for something they did to my son,” Rudi said in the 911 call.

  • Go after her lisence as well. The only signature that is really needed is the doctors on the prescription. Denying a medical device of medication that a doctor ordered is practicing medicine without a lisence. Get bunch of good lawyers so your son will be able to go to a private school and collage of your choice at his former school district expense.

  • This was really an outrageous act that a school nurse would stand by and watch a kid have an attack like this one, and do nothing.What was this woman thinking allowing this kid to suffocate from lack of breath I can’t believe anyone would go to such extreme, knowing that this kid was having a real problem,which could have ended up being a life and death situation..I was outraged at this nurse..if there were papers that had not been signed and this kid would have died over that..what has our society become? when we would allow a kid to die over a signature.There are to many rules and regulations, and this is only the beginning..its going to get a lot worse if we the people don’t step in and change these rules that could cause kids to die..over signatures.

  • This is typical of PC liberal BS…The nurse would have been protected under the " Good Samaritan" law…What an asshole…And yes, she should lose her license under the "Being Stupid" law…

  • What is the name of this evil nurse? We can get her doxx and begin making some phone calls to her. 🙂

  • The school is completelty in the wrong is now scrabbling, lying, to cya…Put all meds. aside why, when she ocked my son OUT of her office and was alone inside did she not call 911? her name is shamia johnson …there is a petition to remove her from her post at CHANGE.ORG look for "volusia county school nurse….
