do you administer medicines

Discussion in 'Teaching assistants' started by kanddd, Feb 22, 2011.

  1. Our school is just about to review their policy on administering medicines. Do any of you administer non-prescribed medicines? We are thinking about only having one person to take in, administer the medicines. Do you already do that? I will be the person who will be in charge of the administration of the medicines and trying to get my head around the rules and regulations that cover this. Thanks
     
  2. I am responsible for administration of prescription medicines at school. Our guidelines are that if they are to be given 4 times a day then one dose can be given at lunchtime or at time stated by parent. There must be a form filled in (taken from medicines in school booklet) and signed by parent and myself. Medication is kept with me until needed.
