PUBLIC EDUCATION: Nurse refuses student inhaler during asthma attack: School says medical release form lacked parent’s signature.

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.

You know, I’m beginning to think that sending your kids to public schools is starting to look like parental malpractice.
