The mum brought the sibling of the child on tami flu in today, I explained all that I had had to do yesterday due to her daughter being dropped off at my place, even with suspected swine flu.
She was a bit defensive, saying they had not been told the severity of it all and that they didn't know the child should be isolated at home whilst on the course of tami flu.
They spoke to a doctor and then picked up the tami flu from a chemist, am I meant to believe BOTH healthcare professionals failed to mention this crucial element regarding the medication?
I somehow doubt it. Plus the fact it was the dad who picked up the medication from the chemist, and he is notoriously absent minded and puts work before childcare often... and seems to make light of serious situations.
So their child is not here today, but will be tomorrow. They had better be honest with me re whether she has any more symptoms too.
Another little girl I care for, who was exposed to this child on tami flu yesterday, is off today, with a roaring temperature of 40 deg celcius and a hacking cough... sure signs of swine flu... oh my goodness! This mum is very responsible though and will keep her off if sick for sure.
