Nurse

Orchard Park Nurse, Mrs. Fuller

My name is Cheryl Fuller and I am the new school nurse here at Orchard Park Elementary.  My husband and I live in Carmel, and we have two children who attend Clay Middle School.  My children keep me busy with music, scouts, and sports.

My nursing education includes a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from IUPUI. I also have a Bachelor of English Literature from DePaul University in Chicago, IL.  Prior to becoming a school nurse, I was a cardiac nurse in a hospital setting. 

My goal as the school nurse at Orchard Park Elementary is to promote a safe and healthy environment for the students, staff and families.  I believe that communication and a team approach is important for positive outcomes.  I look forward to working 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.

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.
