School Official Thinks Something Is Wrong With Girl’s Skin - Makes A Huge Mistake

One mother in Florida is seething after her daughter's injury was made worse by an unqualified school staff member. The little girl went to the nurse for treatment of a skinned knee. The nurse was not available, but a secretary decided to take her place. Instead of treating the knee, she interfered with an earlier injury that had been treated by doctors.

Melissa Canales brought her daughter to the hospital for a gash in the head. Her little girl Linda, 6, was playing with friends when a doll was chucked at her head and caused a wound. Instead of stitches, the doctor at the hospital used skin glue to close the wound. Glue results in less trauma and a minimized scar.

The next day when Linda got off the school bus, her head injury was open and bleeding. Someone had peeled the glue off of the injury. Linda handed her mother a paper stating she went to the nurse's office at school and that her injury was 'cleaned [with] anti-bacterial ointment & applied band-aid.'

Canales began investigating to get the facts and she learned that the nurse was not on school grounds at the time. Danielle Sweeney, the principal's secretary, treated Linda. Linda told the mom she went in for a knee scrape, but Sweeney tried to fix the 'tacky' glue on her head.

Canales had submitted after care documents for Linda's injury to the school that morning. She demanded to know why the school did not call her before allowing an unqualified person treat the head injury.

Linda's scar was bleeding and she had to go back to the emergency room, this time for stitches to close the wound.

She's filed a lawsuit with Rymfire Elementary. “As a mom I’m beyond upset right now,” Canales said. “They are leaving my daughter with a much more invasive scar than she should have had. I mean, I got a referral to a plastic surgeon, the whole nine yards.”
