My pre-teen daughter told me she touched blood at the summer camp after I picked her up.
The summer camp had an animal presentation. A man came with wild animals and talked about animal - type of activity.
When kids were allowed to pet the animals, my daughter chose to pet an aligator and touched its tail.Then she noticed she got some blood on her fingers. She let her teacher know, and she was told to go wash hands.
When I went to pick her up, though, no one told me about the incident unitl I heard it from my daughter. I called the camp office to know whose blood it was, no one knew. They said it didn't happen. But my daughter doesn't lie, if she did for what?
It looks like the animal petting continued even after my daughter notified the teacher the animal was bleeding. They said, if she didn't have a cut or open sore she should be fine. But if she did what would they say? AND they even don't know if it was from the animal or from a human. They didn't investigate it nor called me to assure my daughter was ok.
Even my kids know blood or any type of body fluid is bio hazzard and won't touch it even if they don't have cut or open sores on hands.
I'm just surprised to see how this type of thing is handdled in a child care facility.
