Nurse

I’m Ronnie DiBenigno, the school nurse—but the students call me, “Mrs. D.”  I am very excited to be here and have the opportunity to serve my community. I previously worked at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital as well as a few major hospitals on the East Coast.  My husband and I have resided in Carmel for the past 13 years, and all three of my children graduated from Carmel Clay Schools.

I love working with children and am committed to keeping all of my students healthy and happy so that they be at their best in the classroom and beyond.  In addition to providing direct care to students and staff in need, I am also committed to teaching students preventative health and safety practices.

My office hours are 7:20 AM – 3:20 PM while school is in session.

Feel free to contact me with your health concerns.

Wash Your Hands

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, keeping hands clean is one of the most important ways to prevent the spread of infection and illness.

When washing hands with soap and water:

1. Wet your hands with warm water.

2. Apply a generous amount of soap.

3. Rub your hands together for 20 seconds.

4. Rinse your hands.

5. Dry your hands with a paper towel.

6. Use the paper towel to turn off the faucet and open the door.

If soap and clean water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub to clean your hands. Alcohol-based hand rubs significantly reduce the number of germs on skin and are fast-acting.

When using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer:

1. Apply product to the palm of one hand.

2. Rub hands together.

3. Rub the product over all surfaces of hands and fingers until hands are dry.  

Always wash your hands after using the bathroom, after changing diapers, after cleaning the toilet, after handling anything soiled with stool and before eating and preparing food.
