What's your medication policy?
- Certified staff members administer medications during the school day. A registered nurse oversees the staff members and monitors the student’s medication administration on a regular basis for therapeutic value and side effects. Arrangements will be made to transport necessary medication to school. Medications are kept in a locked cabinet at all times.
- Medications must be in the original pharmacy container and must be labeled with the medication name and prescribed dose to be administered. The label must be consistent with contents.
- A Medication Administration Form must be completed and signed prior to the dispensing of any medication. A physician form must also be completed.
- Any change in prescription or dosage should be reported immediately and a new permission form must be obtained. The parent/guardian provides medication.
