Administration of Medication in School Click here for form
Every effort should be made to administer medications outside of the school setting. However, School Nurses may administer medications which will allow the student to maintain an optimal state of health, remain in school, and participate in his or her complete educational program.
The New York State Education Department (NYSED) and the City School District require the following for School Nurses to administer medications in school:
1) A written statement from the parent or guardian requesting administration of medication in school as ordered by a licensed physician.
2) A written order from a licensed physician for both prescription and non-prescription medications to be given in school.
3) The parent or guardian must assume responsibility to have the medication delivered directly to the Health Office in a properly labeled original container. For “over-the-counter” (non-prescription) medications, the original store container must be labeled with the student’s name and must have an expiration date on the manufacturer’s label.
Please note, request for administration of both OTC and prescribed medicines in school can also be done via the physical exam form (H-1 Health Appraisal - Please see the back of form. Parent and physician signatures required)
