Tell me that this did not freakin happen! This is a joke. Please find it on snopes for me. I'm having anxiety for the little boy just thinking about it! I would be stomping some serious ass out of everyone at that school.

I don't doubt that it's true. Parents sign forms and they have these 'professionals' come in to do a service for them, all while charging the system for this 'free' work. As for medications, I wouldn't think anyone would want the liability to give a child medication they aren't sure the child can have (allergies). Parents are supposed to fill out those forms, but they aren't always accurate and with a child this young you have pretty much no background on them and they do not always know if and what they are allergic to. This part of the stir article struck me:
It sounds like she was doing what we all do: saying, hey, sure, free medical care for the kid!
Free does not mean good or quality. It just means no direct charge to you.

And when you have work done on your child they sometimes make you sign a waiver or disclaimer about anesthesia.
