Was a teacher wrong for ignoring my son's injury?

Question Details: My son 12 fell in history class and hit his head. His teacher left him on the floor crying for quite sometime as students were calling out and my son was crying faintly on the floor. The teacher continued the class. Then after they decided to acknowledge the students calling out to help my son he told my son to get up and walk himself to the nurse's office. I picked him up early from school that day and took him to the ER where he was diagnosed with a concussion. Was she negligent for not immediately getting him medical attention and then allowing him to walk alone with a head injury?
