Is it true that in some districts, teachers or secretaries may dispense student medications? I was reading about a rural area that allegedly could not afford to hire a nurse that instead had a secretary giving anticonvulsant meds to a student. I'm not a school nurse, but I'm appalled that the locality thinks so little of its population that it won't provide a nurse and then to overburden a teacher/secretary with duties that are beyond his/her scope of practice...
Does the state legislature create a statute that allows this practice?
Anyone with knowledge of these sorts of issues?
