I found this form this morning at my counties website.... I think the form is GREAT for when you are requiring a doctor note for a child to return.... it allows you the provider to include information that you want the doctor to know

Yes, it is a great form....I copied it right out of the book it came from and use it for every incident where I send the child home or he/she needs to see the doctor.

Totally!! I print off the illness info for each specific illness if someone has it and it tells the exclusion policy, causes, treatments, incubation periods, contagious periods and all sorts of good stuff for the parent and the provider. I use it like a Bible for every sniffle and cough that comes my way! Definitely worth the money! If you have the opportunity to purchase one; I would recommend it for sure!

I just checked that out and got happy! Then I thought 2 things. Will my state have a problem with me using it and the parent could just fill it out themselves. I could call and confirm I guess? I like the Dr.s to send it from the office on the letterhead. That way it's less likely to be falsified.

I just worry a lot because I have 1 parent that will push her kid in here every time he is sick and argue with me that he isn't. I told her last time allergies aren't green! She argued the Dr said they could be. So I waited til the fever went up (assuming she brought it down with tylenol) It came up to 101 and I sent him home. I guess I need a written letter from God himself telling the parent that allergies aren't green!

Anyway Thanks bunches for the form I can use it with my non rule breaking clients!

I read a handy dandy post on the wall about green snot and how it is always caused by a virus and antibiotics would not help (CDC). We have strep. Our major symptom is green snot. We are not running a fever. They sent us back to school and work. School and work sent us back home. I am still waiting for them to call us back about getting another note, since they insist they can only excuse us for the DAY WE ARE SEEN.

I have child care assistance. I am required to take my child unless the MD excuses him. I am also required to report to work. Our MDs do not care.

What can I say to make them work with us?

Oh wow! Save yourself the money unless you prefer paper copies to use because the link you posted IS the book pretty much in an on-line version. The individual fact sheets are what I print and handout to the parents. I use it as my guideline for exclusion or not. I didn't know they have it on-line now.

I would say exactly this. If they don't care....find another MD.

You know I was just thinking about that same thing and the solution that I came up with was this. Since that actual form says sample and has the name of a different state than the one that I am in I would type/make my own up to suit my needs anyway so I thought about leaving a box or blank area blank where the clinic/Dr/Hospital can stamp it KWIM? Each time you take your kid to get their shots they stamp their immunization card with the facility's stamp so I'm sure that they could do this with the form too.

I was thinking of creating my own using their template and in the doctor section ask them to attach their recommedations to the form with their letter head and also sign the form I sent.
