Delegation of Glucagon[R] in the School Setting: A Comparison of State Legislation
Wilt, Lori; Foley, Marie
Journal of School Nursing, v27 n3 p185-196 Jun 2011
Delegation of nursing procedures and medication in school is fraught with legal and ethical concerns for the school nurse. Because nurses may be responsible for coordinating care for several school buildings, delegation of nursing care and medication administration has occurred out of necessity. Nurse Practice Acts in some states, but not all, allow for delegation of medication to unlicensed assistive personnel. This article explores Glucagon[R] delegation laws in the United States and presents an argument against such delegation in states where Nurse Practice Acts do not allow for delegation of medication to unlicensed assistive personnel. (Contains 2 tables.)
