Tips for parents whose children receive medications

Here are ways you can help the school nurse if your child receives medication at school:
•Ask the doctor to write an order if medication is being changed or discontinued. Give the order to the nurse.
•Sign the school medication authorization form before leaving the doctor’s office.
•All medications must match the description of the side of the medicine container. The pharmacist will provide another container for use at school.
•Put equal amounts of pills in both containers if your child is on two medications to be taken at the same time.
•Cut or divide pills prior to bringing to school if your child is taking a half tablet.
And remember…..
All medication should be brought to school and given to the nurse by the parent or legal guardian.
