    Vomiting may have many causes including: illness, bulimia, anxiety, pregnancy, injury/head injury, heat exhaustion, overexertion or food poisoning. Therefore, the need for nursing assessment and history-taking helps to identify a possible cause for the vomiting.

    Students who experience one or more vomiting episodes with or without fever, over a 24 hour period and/or are unable to tolerate normal food and drink, may not return to school until 24 hours after the last vomiting episode.
