I feel like that is our only options since I can not leave and the time it would take for my emergency back up to arrive so I could leave is the same amount of time it would take a parent to arrive too soooo.. Plus this goes along with making sure parents are available when needed/called and that they have reliable contact people available for those exact reasons.
This. I have something in my contract that minor injuries are treated by me, serious injuries require immediate pickup, severe/life threatening I call 911 and parents to meet ambulance at the hospital since I am unable to assist during transport.
