ETA: I dont want to do anything about it now. I was just curious if there was something I could have done about it when it happened. That is all.

You are a better safe then sorry case....
You may have had a case :-( seems discriminatory. If she knew she should have known. Or she could have asked him.
Every staff member knew he was diabetic.
If you would have done it then you could have sued but you're too far passed the time frame. Did she not know he was diabetic? I know they recommend to not give the shots in the arm because of brusing and I know from an interview Bret michaels had some serious issues when track marks developed an ER doctor treated him for a heroin od instead of a diabetic issue :-/
Didnt think I could. I am not going to do anything about it now. I was just curious if I could have done something about it a year ago.
You can pretty much sue everyone here in the US. I don´t think it is very reasonable to do that more than a year later. Why didn´t you do something right away?

As she said, she was curious. Is it illegal to be curious now?
if she is not planning on it why is she even bother asking.
She clearly stated she wanted to know if she could have, no reason to be so bitchy. The entire country isn't as money hungry as your comment makes it sound.
Why would you file a lawsuit?
cause she needs money now.
by Anonymous 9November 20, 2012 at 12:57 PMI agree with this. She was a teacher and not a medical professional.
I dated a guy that got shots in his arm every day - he never bruised... I would have called, too.
Let it go. Why sue over something so stupid? Maybe she didn't think that getting shots that often could actually cause bruising and she was worried about your son. Be happy they actually gave a shit instead of letting it go.
by Anonymous 1 - Original PosterNovember 20, 2012 at 12:57 PMYep. He has been a diabetic since June 7 2009 and I have had them called on me 4 times. All related to him being a diabetic. The first one was an ex friend tried to convince them that I gave my son diabetes because I supposedly had munchhousens (sp?)
Sorry that isn't SHIT you can do this can and most likely will be thrown out of court. They have a right to cal CPS on anyone they are concerned about. So with that said you just got in the cycle of you have a special needed child and the system will get called on you. Thats the bottom line. I got through it all the time.

I doubt it because teachers are mandated reporters. It's their job to report suspected abuse.
by CutieCrabNovember 20, 2012 at 1:03 PMI feel bad for your child, getting shots a few times everyday... And he was in headstart, so he was about 4? :-(
I imagine when he first needed it, that must have been scary. NOT trying to be rude.
