Authorization for Student Possession and Use of emergency medications such as an Epi-pen and/or inhaler. This form also includes a Self-Carry agreement that must be completed by student and parent.
Please remember that Ohio law requires that an additional Epi-pen be stored in the clinic when a student carries an Epi-pen in the event that the Epi-pen has been lost or misplaced or left at home or an additional dose is needed prior to the arrival of the paramedics.
This is a medication form specifically intended to be used only two to three times during the school year for the OTC medications listed on the form. Please note that these medications are provided by the school in tablet form only. Thus, if your child needs liquid or chewable Benadryl or other medications, the parent must provide those medications.
All medications prescribed by the physician must use the Authorization for Prescription medication form. Please contact the school nurse in your child's building with any questions or concerns that you might have.
Please note that you will find several medication forms for students with food allergies. The first form is the standard form for the administration of any prescription medication at school by school personnel such as Epi-pens and inhalers and those medications are stored in the clinic.
