The Administration of Medication in School
The State of New York mandates that the school nurse follow the procedures listed below:
1. All medication, including non-prescription drugs, given in school must be prescribed by a licensed medical doctor.
2. A written request from the physician must be on file. This request must indicate the dosage and frequency of the prescribed drug.
3. A written request from the parent to administer medication must be on file.
4. The parent must assume responsibility to have the medication delivered to the Health Office in a properly labeled original container.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY TYPE OF MEDICATION TO SCHOOL WITH YOUR CHILD
This is the Medication Administration Form to be completed by both the parent and physician.
