Children's Medications: A Guide for Schools and Day Care Centers.
Bates, Richard D.; Nahata, Milap C.
Noting the lack of reference sources available on the use of medications in schools and day care centers, this book was created to help school and day care center personnel become more aware of the medicine being given to children at home and at school. Using detailed medication charts, the book answers questions about how to administer medicines correctly and how to prevent problems from occurring while they're being used. The chapters are: (1) "Laws Affecting Medication Administration"; (2) "Medication Storage"; (3) "Medication Administration"; (4) "Calculation of Medication Doses"; (5) "Reading a Medication Profile"; (6) "Medications and Breast Feeding"; (7) "Brand Name Drug References"; and (8) "Medication Profiles." A list of United States poison control centers is included. An extensive index which cross-references common and proper names of medications is included. (AJH)
