Revolving door of nurses continues to plague Holy Rosary School
Holy Rosary school officials learned their school nurse is being transferred.
For nearly two years, the Holy Rosary School has had a revolving door of part-time nurses because of city budget cuts. In October, the school finally got a full-time nurse but now she is being transferred to P.S. 21.
Principal Maryanne Fusco says the Department of Health sent her a letter about the school nurse, but offered no explanation. Fusco says the nurse will be leaving in January and the Department of Health is supposed to send another full-time nurse.
Fusco says a full-time nurse is required because some kids have special needs. She says one student has to have an insulin shot several times a day so you need to have a nurse at school at all times.
School officials hope that when the new nurse arrives in January, the revolving door will stop.
