Nurse

Clay Middle School Health Services

My name is Meredith Haines and I am the school nurse at Clay Middle School. I originally graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Biology, and recently received my nursing degree from Marian University.

I worked in Cardiology at IU Health for 2 years before becoming a school nurse. Last year I worked at Zionsville Middle School as the school nurse. I am married with 3 children who have all attended Clay Middle School. I enjoy snow skiing, summers on the lake, and spending time with family and friends. I love Clay and middle school kids, and am thrilled to be here!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or 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.
