Administering Medication at School
School Board Policy (in accordance with TEC §22.052) prevents nurses and teachers from administering medications of any kind at school without proper consent. Medications are required to be kept locked in the clinic. A written medication permission form with the original signatures of both a parent and the prescribing physician must accompany all medication including self-administration prescriptions for asthma. Each medication must be in its original container with an affixed prescription label listing the patient for whom the drug was prescribed, the drug name, and the proper dosage and administration route information. These guidelines apply to ALL medications.
