Re: “Board can’t promise a cure,” April 16.
It’s very sad to learn that Burbank Unified School District’s head school nurse has to beg the BUSD, Burbank City Council, and other committees to fund three more credentialed nurses to the district. We want our schoolchildren to be well taken care of for their chronic health conditions and when a true health emergency arises.
We are sensitive to this issue because our daughter experienced a life-threatening pulmonary embolism at her high school in 2013. Without the quick thinking of Mrs. Lenora Aguilera, a registered nurse, my daughter wouldn’t be here with us today. Fortunately, Mrs. Aguilera was on-site and insisted that the paramedics take our daughter to the hospital right away.
