    Just an FYI I found a squirrel who obviously had a broken back and was totally paralyzed dragging itself along the side of the road. I brought it to a local vet to be euthanized and they did it for free without question!

    Vets take an oath too and most of them are compassionate enough to provide euthanasia to even a wild animal that is suffering!

    In unrelated news, as some of you may know I am leaving my school at the end of this year. Mr Tomato and I are moving since he got a promotion and I will not be working in a school once we do. I do, however, have 3 job interviews lined up for the weeks after school ends!

    So i'm going to zombify this thread - the district, through an initiative through the county just had a few employees (including myself) take a narcan administration class. The thing is here that this "county initiative" group does these trainings and hands out these narcan kits to "concerned citizens" and family members that want to be prepared to save their loved ones. I voiced my displeasure but was essentially told by my boss - just do it. But what i am trying to impress upon them is that i don't believe the rules for school have changed that much - especially my pk-8 school. (there MAY be something in the hopper for high school here in my state) i don't believe narcan is a drug that can be delegated. I don't think all the pharmacies are even considering it otc yet - i think only some have a special permission and you have to i believe do something special to get it.
    I googled and found these:

    NASN position statement:
    Naloxone Use in the School Setting: The Role of the School Nurse (Adopted June 215) - SchoolNurseNetMain

    This is the NJDoE implying Narcan can be delegated in certain circumstances. OH has similar rules but I didn't see a guidance document on the subject. But not all districts or school physicians permit delegation to anyone other than a licensed medical professional.

    And this commentary: Commentary: Naloxone Use in Schools: School Nurses on the Front Lines - Partnership for Drug-Free Kids - Where Families Find Answers

    Not sure if any of this will help you.
