Forest Dale School Nurse, Mrs. Stevens

My name is Lisa Stevens and I have been the school nurse at Forest Dale since 2013.  My husband and I live in Carmel, and we have two teenage daughters named Ally and Angie.  

My nursing education includes a Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Valparaiso University and a Masters of Science in Nursing from Indiana University.  I have worked in diverse nursing positions in Orthopedics and Pediatric surgery.  I have been a nurse for over 25 years, and I am so excited to begin my fifth year as the nurse at Forest Dale.   

My goal as the school nurse at Forest Dale is to promote a safe and healthy environment for the students, staff and families.  I believe that communication and a team approach is so important for positive outcomes.  I work very closely with students, parents, teachers and administration to ensure that students are healthy and ready to learn.  It is important for parents to contact me with any updates, questions and/or concerns regarding their student’s health.  

My hours are 7:40 am to 3:10 pm while school is in session.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  If you need immediate assistance, please contact of the Administrative Assistants at 317-844-4948 so they can bring your request or need to my attention.

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.
