Nurse Shultz

Welcome to the West Clay Clinic!

My name is Cassie Shultz and I am the school nurse at West Clay Elementary. I grew up in Dubuque, IA, and graduated from the University of Iowa after transferring from Texas A&M University with a degree in Health Promotion in 2003. I played tennis all four years in college, and attended a tennis academy in New Braunfels, Texas in high school. 

After graduation, I coached tennis for a year at Indianapolis Racquet Club and The Bridgewater Club. I decided to get my nursing degree and graduated from Marian University with a BSN. I have been working at St. Vincent Hospital since on a medical/surgical floor.

I am married with 4 children who attend Carmel Clay Schools. I am thrilled to be here! I enjoy reading, running/working out, and spending time with friends and family.

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.
