The district may maintain undesignated epinephrine auto-injectors (“UEAs”) in a secure location at each school.
The UEAs may be administered by School Nurse or other trained personnel to treat a student who has a diagnosed life-threatening allergy, but whose own epinephrine auto-injector has expired or is not available. In addition, a UEA may be administered to any student that the School Nurse or trained personnel in good faith believes is having an anaphylactic reaction, regardless of whether the parent has provided a signed Medication
Authorization Form, physician authorization, or otherwise granted permission to administer the epinephrine auto-injector.
The district, its staff and agents, and the physician authorizing the stock supply are to incur no liability or professional discipline, except for willful and wanton conduct, regarding any injury arising from the use of the UEA. Parents wishing to opt out of the use of UEAs should contact the school health office.
