We will only change lancets at home.  I'm going by what our nurse told  us on 
the strips, and I can believe it.  My nephew went to a public grammar  school 
in the area and no kid who had a bloody nose was allowed back in class if  
they had a drop of blood on their clothes.  They would have to change into  
 their gym stuff for the rest of the day or wait in the nurse's office until
clothes were brought from home.
