I know that these recent changes are frustrating for you and I apologize for the inconvenience. Help me to get through these next couple months of school this year, and hopefully next school year we will have a better plan in place.
Currently, at school, if your child needs medicine that is not a prescription, I may be calling you if you're available or a family member who is and is willing to come to the school to administer OTC medications. The school currently doesn't have a Physician overseeing medications for me to administer them. If I have a doctor's order to administer, I will be more than happy to. As a nurse, it is out of my scope of practice to administer medications without a physician order. Once again, I apologize for the inconvenience. I will distribute further information as it is available to me.
Thank you for your understanding,
Ashley, RN, BSN
