In brief: No

If you mean one of the disorders that keeps blood from clotting, that's serious stuff.
See your doctor, who may send you to a hematologist.

In brief: Yes

I'll bet you are talking about a child of yours who has a known bleeding / clotting disorder, is being treated successfully at home, and who is ready to start school.
Generally, the parents know plenty about what to look for, how to treat, and when to get physician assistance. The physician, parents, and nurse can work together to prepare for what junior may need at school.
