[IPk] Testing in Class/Set Problems/Xmas Drinks
Testing in Class
I fear the problem here is the current Government's phobia re litigation. In
spite of written promises by parents not to sue, if something goes wrong the
school inevitably does get sued. Hence the unwillingness to take any
responsibility. I have to say that if I were a Teacher (with IDD and a pump)
I would be very unwilling to take responsibility for a diabetic child in the
school - pumper or otherwise. The risks are too great. It is all very well
parents saying "of course I would not not sue", but I am afraid ambulance
chasing lawyers can be very persuasive and too many teachers, doctors,
nurses have suffered accordingly and lost their jobs. It is a very sad
reflection of the times we live in. The Government need to change the rules
to allow responsible parents to give authority and it be binding. Sadly the
current lot are too keen on taxing us and denying benefits to the needy to
do something sensible.
Having used Polyfin Wings and earlier equivalents for the last 22 years, I
would recommend these as simple, tried & tested. The modern devices, from my
experience, do not give the comfort factor of seeing a very fine needle,
bent or otherwise, going in. Using Microbore tape, I have had 4 infections
in my 22 years pumping and I once kept a line in for 9 days!
A reminder - Thursday 18th Dec - Gyngleboy, 27 Spring Street, Paddington,
London W2 1JA - 6.00pm all pumpers & those interested welcome. New added
incentive, I promise to buy a drink for everyone who comes. Davy's
Celebration Champagne is low fat, low Carb and I am sure good for you.
