If the physician order states that a student may carry and self-administer an Asthma inhaler, the physician shall clearly indicate that the student is qualified and able to self-administer the medication. The student must demonstrate the capability for self-administration and for responsible behavior in the use thereof and the student must notify the school nurse, the principal or the principal’s designee immediately following each use of an asthma inhaler.
In cases when any of the above criteria cannot be met and the administration of the medication is necessary, the parent or guardian may come to school to administer the medication.
