Guidelines for School Medication Administration. Part I: Administrative Policies and Procedures. Part II: An Instructional Program for Training School Personnel To Give Medication. Third Edition.
Colorado State Board of Nursing, Denver.
Increasing numbers of students must be given medications at school, with a variety of staff assisting these children. In order to standardized the format for instructing personnel in medication administration procedures, an instructional program was developed for those in schools and out-of-home child care settings who are giving medications that are not required to be given by a registered nurse. This manual delineates administrative policies for medication administration in school settings in Colorado and provides an instructional program to train school personnel to give medication to students. Part 1 of the manual provides a training outline of the rights and responsibilities of school personnel related to delegating medication administration, confidentiality, and liability. Part 2 provides guidelines for training school personnel to give medication. This section contains training in four areas: (1) instructional program recommendations; (2) medication overview; (3) handling and administration of medications; and (4) medication orders and records. Included with each lesson are the objectives, time and materials needed, recommended instructor, and recommended videotapes. Also included is a test and answer guide. Appended to the guide is a list of items to be included in trainee workbooks, and sample overhead masters. (KB)
